It's Marvellous Monday!
Good Morning Reception, it's time to start a brand-new week of learning! We hope you have all had a lovely weekend. Today we are going to remind ourselves of the months of the year with this great song:
Don't forget that Joe Wicks' will be leading a PE lesson on his YouTube channel today! Access the workout at 9am by following this link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ
Remember, we've got lots of other fun PE ideas on our PE webpage if you would like to try something different.
As usual, your three phonics sessions will be available on the Ruth Miskin YouTube channel at 9:30am. Please access these via the following link: https://www.youtube.com/c/RuthMiskinTrainingEdu/featured%C2%A0
We have seen some amazing example of the writing that you produce during these sessions, and would love for you to send us some more examples via our email!
For our writing this week we are going to be learning about poetry. Not all poetry has to rhyme. This week we are learning about acrostic poems. This is where we write the word down our page and for every letter we think of a new word or phrase like this:
R eady to learn
L aughing all the time
E veryone smiling
Today we want you to try creating your own using your name. Have fun!
For our maths this week we are going to be putting our learning to the test. Summer is almost here as well. Watch this clip below to join in with today’s learning and then try the activity below.
This afternoon we are learning some music. Our adventure of this unit will take us on a journey around our neighbourhood. We will be using singing games to explore beat, note duration and rhyme. In this lesson, we will take part in our first imaginative listening activity. We will listen to a piece of music called "Promenade: Walking the Dog" by George Gershwin.
In today's lesson the children will learn that growing up will change our bodies. They will learn that as we grow we get bigger and taller. They also will look at how our age affects our skin and teeth and mobility. To complete the lesson the children will paint a picture of how they look now and how they will look much later on. They will list key words to describe the change.
