Friday 12th February

It's Fabulous Friday!

 

Good Morning Reception! We've made it to the end of another week of home learning. You and your grownups are all doing a fantastic job and we are so proud of you!

 

Let's start of our day by looking at some of your fantastic learning from yesterday:

Please drop us an email to carle@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk - we love to see pictures of your fantastic learning!

 

Get Moving!

 

Which PE activity are you going to end your week with? Remember to have a look at our PE page if you want some ideas! Joe Wicks will be leading another live PE lesson at 9:30, access it here: https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1

 

We are going to get ourselves ready for our learning by joining in with one of Mrs Evans’ favourite songs, footloose!

RML:

 

Don't forget your last RML lesson of this week! Access it at the following link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ

 

We have seen some absolutely amazing pieces of work that you have done during phonics this week! Could you send us some today?

 

Literacy:

 

On Wednesday you created a paper lantern. We loved seeing your pictures of them! Here is the clip we used to remind you of the instructions:

Today we are going to write our instructions. Watch the clip here as Mrs Daniel shows you how she started writing her instructions. https://greenfield-primary-school.primarysite.media

 

Remember:

  • Number your instructions.
  • Say you sentence, clap your sentence, write your sentence.
  • Use a capital letter to begin each sentence.
  • Write your letters on the line.
  • Use finger spaces between each word.
  • Use a full stop at the end of each sentence.

 

You can use the worksheet below or write your instructions on paper at home. We can't wait to see your fantastic writing!

Maths:

 

For your last set of maths learning this week, we are going to learn even more about measuring time. Watch today’s video to find out more, just click here

 

For your activity today, you are going to need a 1-minute timer. We are going to set you a series of tasks, that you need to do for a minute at a time. Remember to write down how many times you can complete each task so that you can compare them at the end!

 

Your tasks:

  • Walk up and down the stairs – how many times can you go up and down in one minute?
  • Jump as high as you can – how many times can you jump in one minute?
  • Write your name on a piece of paper – how many times can you write it in one minute?
  • Build a tower – how many blocks can you balance on your tower in one minute?

 

Can you think of any of your own challenges to complete? If you’re feeling competitive, why not do them alongside someone else in your family.

 

Once you’ve finished all of your challenges, have a think. Which task could you do the most times in 1 minute? Which task could you do the least?

 

If you would like to, you can finish off your maths learning this week by listening to the story ‘5 Minutes Peace’ by Jill Murphy, just click here.  

 

Well done for all of your hard work this week during maths Reception! Once again, we are really proud of you!

Understanding of the World:

 

Do you know what celebration is happening today? It’s Chinese New Year! To celebrate, we are going to start off by watching some clips from Chinese New Year parades. The first video is of a dragon dance, and the second is of a lion dance:

To find out even more let’s join Abbie and her brother, who are going to show us how they celebrate: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8ssHXZ9_qU

 

In the video you will have seen that Abbie and her siblings were given red envelopes. These are called hóng bāo, and people give them to each other to bring a years’ worth of good luck. We would love you to create your own red envelope today and give it to someone in your household. The instructions and template are attached below, if you do not have access to a printer have a go at drawing your own. If you are able to, make sure to put a lucky penny inside!

To finish off your learning today, why not watch this My World Kitchen episode, all about Chinese food: https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/my-world-kitchen-chinese-tofu-egg-and-prawn-recipe

 

Have you ever tried Chinese food before? If so, what was it like? If you are able to, why not try some tonight, or over the weekend?

 

We hope you have fun with your celebrations Reception - please send us some pictures of what you get up to!

You have all worked very hard this half term and we are very proud of all of you. We would like to say a huge thank you to all the parents who have continued the learning at home, we can't tell you how much we really appreciate this. 

 

Have a very well-deserved week off and we look forward to seeing you back here on Monday 22nd February. 

 

From Mrs Daniel, Miss Stanley, Mrs Fergusson, Mrs Sheldon & Mrs Begum
