# Friday 22nd May

Fabulous Friday! Congratulations on completing another week of learning. Thank you again for the support you have shown by sending us all the wonderful pictures and videos of the work you have completed at home. Please remember to email us at least once every week so we can keep up to date.

RWI

Remember to practise your sounds daily. RWI will be holding daily virtual lessons for children to practise their sounds:

Set 1 sounds at 9:30am or 12:30pm

Set 2 sounds at 10:00am or 1:00pm

They have updated these lessons to include word time for set 1 speed sounds and spelling for set 2 and 3. There is also “Storytime with Nick” three times a week and some poems that your child can learn and perform.

Literacy

Today we want to talk about the describing words used in the story. These are also called adjectives. Some examples are yellow, soft, juicy, round. Talk to your child about how using describing words can build up a picture of what something is like. Challenge the children to think of some other descriptive words to describe some real fruit. The ideas could be based on what the fruit looks, smells and tastes like.

Draw a picture of the fruit you are describing and write inside as many words as you can to describe that fruit. Don’t forget to use your sounds to write each word. Don’t forget to send us a picture of your work!

Maths

Good morning children, let's get our maths brains warmed up by using a 100 number square on your phone, laptop, or you can print it out. Point to each number and count as far as you can go.

To finish off our week of doubles, below is a double matching game, If you do not have access to a printer you can make them using paper and crayons/pencils etc. Muddle the cards up and ask the children to find all the doubles and the answers. This can be done independently if possible to see if your child has understood their learning this week. Not only does this help with doubling it also reinforces their number recognition and counting which are important skills in Reception. If your child is struggling maybe model double 1 and double 2 and see if they can carry on after that on their own.

Below is also the links from yesterdays online games if you wish to do these again.

Please choose the first choice in the game- recalling doubles to 10- you can use cubes or drawings to help you with your doubles or maybe you know some of them off by heart.

The second game is Top Marks-Hit the button.

Lets finish off our maths lesson by using our 100 number square. Give the children a number and ask them to find it on the number square, recognising numbers to 20 is an important skill for children to learn in recepetion but challenging them to recognising other numbers will prepare them for next academic year.

Topic

At a time like this is a really important to remember how lucky and amazing we all are. Below is a sheet for you to think about what it is that makes you amazing because you are. You do not have to use this format if you can think of another creative way to do it. We really miss each and every one of you and can not wait to see you back at school soon.
