WB 13th July

This week we are thinking about moving into our new classes in September. If you are in Darling class, your new teacher is Miss Matthews and your new class name will be Merian class. Miss Matthews will be in school to meet the children on Tuesday and we will post a video of Miss Matthews introducing herself on Tapestry for those children learning at home. If you are in Attenborough class, your new teacher is Mrs Prince and your new class name will be Stephenson class. Mrs Prince will be in school to meet the children on Wednesday and we will post a video of Mrs Prince introducing herself on Tapestry for those children learning at home.

Below is our timetable of suggested activities for this week. We’ll be posting these each day on Tapestry and you might like to upload how you get on with the activities.

 

Monday

Reading: 

*Daily speed sounds

 

*Listen to me reading ‘The Paper Dolls’ by Julia Donaldson on Tapestry. You are going to have a go at making your own paper dolls to play with like the little girl in the story.

 

Writing:

*Can you draw some pictures and write captions to show your favourite memories of Reception? You might like to include some of the activities you enjoyed most.

 

Maths:

*Daily counting to 20 and back.

 

*Which is further?

Ask a grown up to put 2 objects a short distance away from you. Your job is to investigate which is furthest and to explain how you know. You might find out by counting footsteps or strides to each object.

 

Also:

*Make your own paper dolls, you could decorate them as your friends or your family or invent your own names for them.

Watch how to make them here:
