Maths

We are going to continue using the White Rose Maths schemes of work, with this weeks book being 'The Princess and the Wizard'. 

You can listen to the story here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=babXCIRMjQM

I recommend having a look through the slides before each maths activity, as some need household resources!

Phonics

This half term is all about revisiting all of receptions previous phonics learning, as we have covered all the sounds and blending skills needed to be ready for year 1. Revisit all of the phase 2 and 3 sounds and tricky words and focus on any that you still don't know. Make these a daily focus until you become confident with them. 

 

Letters and sounds have a youtube channel which takes you through the phase 2 and 3 sounds, blending words and year 1 sounds. 

 

If you are still working on phase 3 sounds use the 'Reception Lessons' playlist and play one video per day (you could find the videos that relate to the sounds you still need to work on if you like, or work through them all in order)

 

If you are pretty confident with your phase 3 sounds and are beginning to blend words together, use the 'Learning to Blend Lessons' playlist, and work through these. 

 

If you want a challenge, you could try the 'Year 1 Lessons' playlist, and begin to learn some year 1 sounds.

Thursday

 

You have traveled all around the world with Buddy Bee and Uncle Bob, and now it is time to head back home! This is the England flag:

 

Have a go at completing this booklet, all about where you live. You may need a grown up to help you with this, use it as talk time to begin to understand different names for areas in which we live. 

 

Friday

Today Bubby Bee is feeling like he wants to go on another visit to a different place, but he is unsure of where to go! Can you think of somewhere Bubby Bee can go? Maybe it is somewhere you have visited before and really enjoyed, or somewhere you would like to visit yourself one day. Maybe it where you favourite animal or a family member lives. It doesn't have to be abroad! 

Can you make a fact file of your chosen place to help persuade Bubby Bee to want to visit?
