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