Remember all the homework suggestions are optional. You can do as little or as much as you like. Each week’s homework mirrors the type of activities we would be covering in class. We also encourage you whenever possible to keep up with reading, handwriting practice, phonics and basic number such as counting, recognising and ordering numbers to 20. We understand parents may still be working or caring for other family members and may have limited time so please don’t feel under pressure. The most important thing is that you and your families stay safe and well. If you have any questions or if we can be of any help with home learning please do get in touch via the blog enquiries page or through tapestry, which we check on a regular basis.
We are in the last week of the school year. It hasn’t been a normal school year, that’s for sure! Although we have all had to deal with huge changes and many challenges, I hope you have enjoyed the time you have had to spend with family and loved ones. It has been lovely to catch up with you all either in class or over the phone. This week marks your last week in Reception Year. In September you will be in Year One! Now seems like the perfect time to think about what you would like to be when you grow up!
What do you want to be when you grow up? Why?
Can you draw a picture of yourself in your chosen career? Maybe you could write some sentences underneath about what you are and the kinds of jobs you have to do.
Reading and Writing
Use these to log yourself in.
Have a go at some of the different phase 3 games. Try to make sure you choose reading and writing games.
When you are grown up, you will need to count your money carefully to make sure you can afford things. Ask a grown up to show you some coins you have at home. What do they all mean? What can you use them for? Maybe you would have enough to go to a shop and buy something with the coins.
Now you have chosen your future career, why not set up a role play area and role play your new job. You might need to dress up, use different items to set up your area and use recycling to make some props! Here are some ideas:
Transitioning from Reception Year to Year 1 is a big jump for both parent and child. We are well aware that this has not been a normal year and therefore it may seem a little more daunting.
The year one teachers will be working hard with all children to ensure that the lockdown has as little impact as possible on your child’s transition into year 1. Learning is always matched to the children’s needs and the gap in their time at school will be taken into account. So please do not spend your holidays worrying. Just keep reading with your child and feel free to keep going with any of the activities that are on this blog. As ever, if you have any concerns, please ring the school office.
Whole School Project!
Here are our snakes in the final week!
Thank you so much to all parents and children for a different but amazing year!
We can’t wait to see you all in September as big, grown up Year Ones!!
Have a lovely summer holiday!
