Maths:
This week, we will be concentrating on the composition of numbers to 5. This means the children will be looking at how the number 5 is made up of smaller numbers and beginning to compare the numbers up to 5, saying which are bigger and smaller. We will also begin to explore the number 0.
Please watch the lesson attached with your child. It is called 'Alive in 5 Week 1 Session 1'. It is by White Rose which is a scheme of mathematics that we follow in class.

After you have watched and discussed the lesson please sing some rhymes with your child which count backwards from 5. Some examples are '5 Little Ducks' and '5 Little Monkeys'. Here are links to Youtube versions of the rhymes, you may know your own rhymes that you want to sing, too.

Find some items around the house and ask your child to take one away each time you sing the rhyme. This will help them to visualise how the number is getting smaller. If you don't have 5 ducks or 5 monkeys, for example, you could change the words to 5 dolls or 5 cars. You can also use counters or stones to represent the animals in the rhyme.
Finally, can your child make up their own rhyme which counts back from 5?
This lesson is summarised in the attached PDF file.

Phonics:
We will shortly be letting you know, via the private Class Dojo messenger, which phonics group your child is in. Please only complete the phonics lesson for your child's group.

Miss Turner's group:
You will be learning the 'c' sound. Please follow this link to watch the phonics lesson with your child:
https://schools.ruthmiskin.com/training/view/0NxmVNgV/iBMtPmV5
Once you have joined in with the video lesson please practise forming the 'c' sound, using the phrase 'curl around the caterpillar' to help.
Now ask your child to have a go at writing these words:
cat, cot, cup.
Ask them to Fred talk the sounds before they write them. Ask them what the first sound is, the middle sound and the last sound. Encourage them to form their letters correctly and to sit them on the line.

Mrs Renton's & Mrs Dewsbury's group:
You will be learning the 'sh' sound. We call this sound 'special friends' as they are 2 letters which make 1 sound. Please click on this link to watch the video lesson with your child:
https://schools.ruthmiskin.com/training/view/ZUxDaqTW/rnTftAbQ
Once you have joined in with the video lesson please practise writing the 'sh' sound. Encourage your child to say the phrase 'sh says the horse' to help them. Now ask them to write these words:
Ship, shop, dash, mash.
Remind them to form their letters neatly and to sit them on the line.
Once they have written these words they can have a go at writing a sentence. Read the sentence below to your child. Then ask them to repeat it. You can repeat it together a few time, perhaps in a squeaky voice, a low voice etc. in order that they remember the sentence whilst they are writing it. Remind your child that we need to end the sentence with a full stop.
I see a fish on a dish.

Mrs Talbot's group:
You will be learning the 'i' sound. Please click on this link to watch the video lesson with your child:
https://schools.ruthmiskin.com/training/view/rWEiz32P/ZKz0Eoc0
Once you have joined in with the lesson please practise writing the 'i' sound, saying the phrase 'down the body and a dot for the head' to help them.
Now ask them to write these words, supporting them to sound them out:
in, tip, lid, sit.

Please do not worry if your child has learnt this sound previously. Due to us isolating before Christmas, followed by the holidays, it is vital that we re-visit previous learning to ensure that it is embedded rather than rushing on.

Topic:
Please continue to draw and label planets, as before- you can choose one planet each day.

You will also have collected a home learning pack today. We will direct you to specific sheets that we would like you to complete when appropriate. You will also find some paper books. Please read 1 with your child each week as your child's weekly book. If you were unable to collect the learning pack today, we are in the process of posting them out to you.

As always, should you have any questions please do not hesitate to get into contact with us.

We have been really enjoying seeing the work that you have been doing- keep it up!

Thank you for your support and stay safe,

From the F2 team.

I hope that your home learning is going well. Here is an overview of a typical day in our Reception classes. This may support you in organising your lessons at home:
Phonics (RWI- video lesson and tasks set daily)
Play (this could be a chance for your child to play with their toys at home, this is also a good time to read their Ditty book with them)
Snack and milk
Outside time
Maths (White Rose- video lesson and tasks set daily)
Lunch
Outside time
Topic (Space- various tasks will be set)
Play (a chance for your child to play with their toys at home and also to complete a home learning sheet as will be directed each day).
Time to enjoy a story together and finish learning for the day.

Each Monday morning we will upload a video assembly for your child to watch. This would be great for you to play on a Monday morning as we hope it will prepare your child and encourage them in their learning for the rest of the week.
Each Friday, we will upload a video of an F2 teacher reading a story. It would be great if you could show your child this at the end of the day as a way for them to stay connected with school, albeit virtually, and a nice way to end the week.

We will be contacting parents who we have not heard from on Friday in order to check in and offer support.

Thank you for your continued support,

The F2 team.
