Reception 2019-2020

Hello and welcome to Reception class, the first step on each child's learning journey at St.Paul's School. The staff are Miss Cheater, Ms Edwards and Miss Zuzanna.

Good morning on a not so sunny Monday morning (30th March 2020)

I hope that you all had a happy and safe weekend.

Remember to start your day with Joe Wicks and his PE lesson. I will be joining in!!

Challenge for week

To create a weekly meal planner.

I would like you to make a weekly plan of what you eat throughout the day. You can make your own template by writing the days of the week down the left side of your paper and then across the top you can write breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Please encourage your child to use their phonics to write the words. No writing it for them parents!!!!!!! Children, you can sing the days of the week song to your parents to remind you of the order!! Once you have completed this, keep it in your folder and we can share this with your friends. Please write your name and date your work at the top of your paper.

You will be able to see if you are eating a balanced diet throughout the week. (please remember to keep this going for the week)

What is a balanced diet?

To maintain a heathy balanced diet you should try to:

* Eat at least 5 portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables everyday

* Drink plenty  (at least 6-8 glasses a day)

^ Eat some beans, pulses, fish, eggs, meat and other protein

Daily challenge

Remember to do your daily phonics lesson. You can do this by working through your phonics book, listening to Jolly phonics on 'You Tube' and  reading.  Don't forget to read and write your tricky words!! Don't forget to use 'Phonics play' (phases 3 and 4)

Remember to practise your number formation to 20 and continue to find different ways of making 10. 

One last thing Reception, HELP YOUR PARENTS!!!  

Send us photos  of all the fun and interesting projects and  activities that you are completing at home. The best images will be published on the school website.

Have a lovely day

Miss you all very much

Good morning to all my lovely Reception children and their families on a very sunny Thursday morning.

I hope that you are all helping your parents with the housework, especially tidying your room!!!! You can take this opportunity to sort out your toys and put them into their correct boxes. You can take a photo of your tidy room and we can have a competition to see who worked the hardest.  House points will be awarded and special stickers so get tidying and sorting!!!!!

Challenge for the day - Estimating (Please make sue that you complete this activity)

Find a plastic jar or container and fill it to the top with any objects that you can find around the house or in your garden. Your job is to ask your family members how many objects they think are in the jar/container. A question to ask your family

"Mummy/daddy can you estimate how many objects are in this jar?" 

Write your family names on your paper and the number they have guessed.  Count the objects together to find out the winner!! Please keep the work that you do in a folder and we can celebrate this when we return to school
