Reception Home Learning Week Beginning 13th July 2020

Hello Everyone,

We really do hope that this will be the last set of home learning and that we will all be returning to school in September.Ā  Mrs Heslop wrote to you all last week to explain who your new teacher will be and that you will return to Reception Class for a few days in September. We can’t wait to see you all back together again before you move up to Year One.

This week we would like you to reflect on your time in Reception and look forward to starting Year One. There is a booklet and a butterfly below which we would like you to complete and bring with you when you return in September.

Although this year was a much shorter one we really did love having you in our class and have missed you all terribly. It has just not been the same but we make the most of the three days we have together in September.

We can’t wait to hear all about your adventures over the summer holidays! Please continue to stay safe and take care of your families.

Lots of Love From

Mrs Honey, Mrs Watson and Miss Robinson xxx

Reception Home Learning Week Beginning 29th June 2020

Hello Everyone,

It has been so lovely to see so many of you back in school! We know lots of you are still working really hard at home and we love to see all your photos!

We are going to be looking at Oliver’s Vegetables and Oliver’s Fruit Salad. We love fruit in Reception class especially at milk time! We also have the home learning packs with your maths work and phonics. Reading is very strange at the moment using reading buddy and not reading books. It would be amazing if you could try and read just one text on the reading buddy each week.

This week if you check out the homework section its all about butterflies! Its a project that Mrs Heslop would like to start as a focus for September.

Keep working hard everyone!

Love

Reception Home Learning Week Beginning 22nd June 2020

Hello Everyone!

It has been lovely to see so much of your work onĀ  Tapestry! Miss Robinson and Mrs Watson have really enjoyed looking at it this week and responding to you all! The three of us were back together at a social distance on Thursday which was lovely and we spent some of the day looking through all your photos, which really made us smile!

This week we are going to be looking at one of Mrs Honey’s favourite stories Zog. You can watch an animated version of the story on BBC iplayer and there are some great activities on the Whiterose website. We would also like to concentrate on cutting skills this week. So Mrs Honey has attached some activities which links with Dragons, Knights and Doctors from Zog.

Keep up all your good work!

Lots of Love

Reception Home Learning Week Beginning 15th June 2020

Hello Everyone,

We hope you are all safe and have managed to stay dry during the rain. Has anyone had their wellies on? May be you have splashed in some puddles? Have you been for a walk using an umbrella? Mrs Honey had to buy some new wellies for Grace and we have used them today for a walk on the beach. Grace had a lockdown birthday this weekend! We had lots of balloons, a lovely take away from our favourite Italian Restaurant and lots of chocolate cake! Her favourite present was a popcorn maker!

This week Mrs Honey would like you to concentrate on construction. You can use anything you have at home such as Lego or even cardboard boxes! She would also like you to have a look at money. May be you could play a game of shops.

We hope you have a lovely week and stay safe!

Love From

Home Learning Week Beginning 8th June 2020

Hello Everyone,

It has been lovely to see what you have been up to over half term on Tapestry. We have also been super impressed at your bug hunting skills! Mrs Honey thinks you are all very brave as she isn’t a big fan of bugs!

This week are going to be looking at a Princess and a Wizard and developing your story writing skills. Also as the weather looks to be changing we are going to complete some work around that.

Some of you are returning to school this week with Mrs Honey and Mrs Watson in our own little Reception bubble. We are both very excited to see you! If you are staying at home we would really love for you to continue keeping us up to date about your own little bubble and what you get up to.

Stay safe and take care

Reception Home Learning Week Beginning 1st June 2020

Hello Everyone,

We hope you have had a lovely half term break. The weather has been just gorgeous and we are sure you have been enjoying the sunshine with your families. Have you been in your paddling pool? May be had a water fight? Has anyone had a meal outside? Mrs Honey has spent lots of time outside this week with Grace and Lewis. They have spent a lot of time in their paddling pool cooling down!

We have noticed on Tapestry that lots of you have been helping with gardening and planting seeds which is very impressive! We hope you have been giving them lots of water during the hot weather.

This week we are going to continue with the Ocean theme from your homework last week. So we are going to be thinking about the Seaside. Your White Rose Maths this week is all about The Snail and the Whale. Mrs Honey would love to see your writing tasks this week so if you could upload them to Tapestry that would be great.

Check out the homework section for information about an exciting competition this week!

Take care and stay safe

Lots of Love

Reception Home Learning Week Beginning 18th May 2020

Hello Everyone,

We hope have been enjoying the nice dry weather and spending time outside. This weekend Mrs Honey managed a walk at the coast with Grace and Lewis. We discovered a lovely quiet cove and watched the waves. We even had a sneaky chocolate snack! I must say we were very tired when we got home.

We hope you have been continuing with your reading. Mrs Honey and Lewis are reading Paddington Bear stories at the moment and he is really enjoying them.

There is just one pack and planning to download again this week. We hope you found the new pack last week fun and a bit of a change.

Have a wonderful week!

Love From

Mrs Honey, Mrs Watson and Miss Robinson

TTRS Guinness World Record attempt anyone?

Hello St James,

I am really excited to be posting this for you. Because, as the title above suggests, you guys have the chance to become a Guinness World Record holder on Times Tables Rock stars! Imagine how amazing that would be! And as you may have seen last week, Ben and Sophia Toward showed us that you can dream big and be successful in national and international competitions.

The rules from the website are simple:

Guinness World Records has created a new title –Ā Highest score achieved on ā€˜Times Tables Rock Starsā€™ in one minuteĀ – and we are looking for players to aim for this special accolade. All you have to do is submit a video of yourself playing a Studio game with the highest score in the world by 23:59 on 4th June 2020.

Should I enter?

Over the years we have seen some incredibly high scores in 1 minute games, like the astonishing 186 in the video in the link below. That gives you an idea of how fierce the competition will be for this Guinness World Records title. With lots of practice can you become the number 1 in the world?

Social media vs Official Attempts

We’d love you to share your efforts on social media using #FastestRocker and copying in @TTRockStars and @GWR but all Official AttemptsĀ must be sent by email toĀ support@mathscircle.com

All the final details are available at the link below:

https://ttrockstars.com/page/gwr

Good luck and remember, you have got to be in it to win it.

Mr Monaghan
