Read Write Inc. Phonics have created lots of free resources to help your child continue their learning during these unprecedented times, including eBooks, practice sheets, slideshows, videos, and parent films. Please do not fear, you don't have to be a phonics expert, this is just an opportunity for your child to revisit prior learning and stay in touch with the Speed Sounds. 

 

All resources are in sets so please ask your child which teacher they have currently for phonics to match the set speed sounds. Miss Renwick - Set 1 Mrs Collier - Set 1 Miss Sharples - Set 2 Mrs Vickers/Mrs Holden - Set 2/Set 3 (If your child is unsure please email me at sharplesl@castle-hill.bolton.sch.uk and I will get back to you as soon as possible). Knowing which group your child is in will also enable you to choose an ebook at their appropriate level.

 

The practice sheets don't need to be printed, they can be looked at online and then your child can practice their writing in the workbooks that got sent home. 

 

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to get in touch. smiley

-----------------------------------------------------

Week 1 - Here are your challenges for the remainder or the week. Next week you will have 5 challenges to complete. 

 

#1 Before we finished school we were learning all about money. Can you and your grown-up's make your own snack shop, add price tags to the snacks and find loose change around your house that you can use to pay for your snacks throughout the day. 

Can you remember the names of the different coins?

Can you use the coins to make different amounts?

How do you pay for something that is 4p?

 

#2 Can you draw a picture of your family and label it? You could even write a sentence about what fun things you have been up to on your first week off.

 

We miss you all already so please don't forget to update us with what you are doing and pictures of you completing your challenges on Tapestry. smiley

WHERE IN THE WORLD IS THE NAUGHTY BUS? He's in Antarctica! As it is very cold in Antarctica, this week we have done lots of investigating with ice. We have talked about the changes that occur to ice and conducted our own little science experiment. Whilst learning about the animals that live in Antarctica we found out that many of them have something called blubber to keep them warm. So we filled two bowls with ice cold water, one hand was covered by blubber and the other not. We soon learnt why blubber is necessary for animals to survive.

This week the Naughty Bus has travelled all the way to China to celebrate Chinese New Year. To help us learn about the celebration we each made our own Chinese lantern, in their lucky colour of red and tasted some Chinese foods. Some of us even tried using chopsticks.

Today we received a postcard from the Naughty Bus telling us that he had gone on an adventure. After listening carefully to his clues we figured out that he had gone all the way to Madagascar. This lead us to explore the types of animals that he might see and what it is like in the Jungle. Take at look at some of our amazing artwork. Where will the Naughty Bus go next?

The focus for this half term is the book 'The Naughty Bus'. This week we have enjoyed reading and re-telling the story and we even got to go on a bus.

As Christmas is fast approaching, this week we have been reading the story 'The Jolly Postman' and have written Christmas wish lists to Santa. We also learnt about the journey of a letter. To top off our wonderful week we went on a little trip to our local post box to post our own letters, in a hope that they arrive to Santa in time.

Today we made our very own bird feeders to put in the mud kitchen and in our gardens at home, as we have been learning all about hibernation and how animals struggle to find food during the winter months.

This week we have been learning all about Bonfire Night and have done lots of creative activities based on the celebration.

We have loved dressing up and taking on the role of different occupations during our independent learning time.

Today was the start of our real life superheros week. During the week we will be focusing on the important jobs of people who help us in our community. Today we had a visit from a Dentist who helped us understand the importance of a brushing our teeth and a healthy diet.

This week we have been learning all about healthy eating. We thought very carefully about what makes something 'healthy' or a 'treat'. We then decided to make our own healthy snack, so we each made a fruit kebab. We even tried some fruits we had never tried before such as Mango.

Following on from our superhero topic, this week we have been reading the story 'Supertato'. Our learning challenges were to create our own 'Supertato's' and make a trap to capture the 'Evil Pea', we had lots of fun.

This week we have been learning all about 'Superheros'. When we arrived at school on Monday morning there was a letter from the 'Avengers' explaining that they needed our help to save Spider-Man. They set us some challenges that we needed to complete in order to save him. We had to find as many supervillians outside as we could, make our own superhero capes, take part in superhero training and follow the clues to save Spider-Man.

What a great first few weeks we have had in reception. The children have explored their new classroom and made lots of new friends!
