8th June 30 Days Wild - Challenge 8 ๐Ÿค๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฆ‰๐Ÿฆ†

Date: 8th Jun 2020 @ 9:10am

Good morning Ravensbury,

I hope your weekend was wild and wonderful. If you have an photos of you and your family finding wildlife in your garden, on the vale or at the park send your photos in so we can share them on our blog.

It’s the start of our second week going wild at school and we have one of my favourite activities

I love to sit in my garden recording the birds talking to each other first thing in the morning. They have so much to say to each other!

Can you hear the magpie chattering away loudly?

Have a great day

Monday 8th June - Maths

Date: 8th Jun 2020 @ 9:04am

Good Morning Reception! J

I hope you have had a lovely, restful weekend and are ready for a week full of learning!

Let’s warm up for today’s maths learning by completing a fluent-in-five! Make sure you write them down and keep them safe, as tomorrow I will be posting the answers!

z

This morning we are going to be learning how to count in twos!

When we count in twos, we skip some of our numbers to help us to count quicker, identify patterns in our numbers and learn greater mathematical concepts!

Take a listen to ‘Jack Hartmann’s ‘Dancing 2s’ count in 2s’ video below to begin!

Today, we are going to practise this by beginning to recognise objects in pairs which will help us in counting in 2s forwards and backwards.

You will need:

Obvious pairs of socks and gloves, and some odd socks

2 Number Cards (see attachment)

100-square (See attached)

 

Lay the socks/gloves out onto the floor or workspace. Look at all of these things. Today we are going to make some pairs and you will be learning to count in twos.

What is a pair of something?

Things make pairs because they match and have the same colour or pattern. Your first instruction is to find the pairs and identify the odd socks!

How many things make up a pair?

There are two objects in a pair. For example, we have two feet, so we need two matching socks.

Can you count the pairs? How many pairs of socks do you have all together?

Now, let’s count the socks in ones. To make counting quicker, we’re going to practise counting in twos. Point to each pair as you count, 2, 4, 6, 8…etc

Adults to extend the counting to twos to about 10 or 20 and support children in learning to recite these numbers!

Can you link the chant to numbers on the 100 square? Point to them as you count!
2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20!

Using the number cards, can you match the numbers (in 2s) to each pair like the pictures below?

 

At the bottom of this blog, I have posted links to a 100-square and number cards to support the activity above. I have also posted some more activities linked to counting in twos if you would like an extra challenge!

Please send in pictures of your work, or even just to tell me how you found your maths learning today! I can’t wait to hear from you! Enjoy!

Monday 8th June Reading

Date: 8th Jun 2020 @ 8:30am

Good Morning Reception,

Here are the answer’s to last Thursday’s Sentence of the Day…

I need a shower because I fell in the mud.

 

Today’s sentence of the day is…

Mi dad gave me sum coyns so I went two the shop.

 

Last week we read the story ’10 Little Pirates.’ Today I want you to start by playing 'one word' with someone in your house. How many things can you think of about pirates? How many pirate words can you think of in 1 minute...? Use the word mat below to help you. 

 

Activity 1 - Today I want you to practise your reading skills. I want you to read the sentences about pirates and see if you can draw a matching picture.

 

Activity 2 - Your next challenge is to read the mixed-up sentence and put it back together again so that it makes sense. Then I want you to write the focus word, draw a picture about the sentence and then practise writing the sentence.

 

Extra challenge – can you make up another muddled-up sentence about pirates and write it on scraps of paper. Give it to someone in your house to put the words in the right order so that they make sense. Good Luck!

 

Remember to send in your photos/videos to… receptionhomelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk

Play splat the tricky word – write the above tricky words on scraps of paper and spread them out. Your grown up will say a word and you must splat it.

Quick write – Your grown up will say a tricky word and you must write it without looking at the list.

 

Our new sound today is ‘oi.’ Watch today’s video at the bottom of the blog.

Here are today’s practise and apply activities, which one will you choose?

Activity 1 – Label each picture with the ‘oi’ word.

 

Activity 2 – How many ‘oi’ words can you think of in a minute?

 

Activity 3 – Play Buried Treasure with the ‘oi’ words.

30 Days Wild - Weekend Challenges ๐Ÿž๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ๐Ÿ•ท

Date: 5th Jun 2020 @ 3:02pm

Well done to Honour and Jola for finding this fabulous centipede! It’s safely back outside now. Well done for ‘Going Wild’!

If any of you want a wild weekend then here are two more challenges:

Challenge 1: How do I know it’s a centipede and not a millipede? CLUE: The answer is NOT to do with the number of legs it has. 

Challenge 2: Bugs shouldn’t be living in your house so why not make them a hotel in your garden? Stack wood and tubes and crates to make a bug hotel this weekend. Then watch them set up home in all the nooks and crannies. Bugtastic! 

Send your answers to my home learning address:

Have a brilliant weekend! Keep those eyes peeled for lots of bugs

Good Morning Ravensbury,

It’s the end of our first wild week. I’ve spoken to a few of your grownups about what they have seen and done this week. Did anybody find a minibeast in their house yesterday? Send in photos of your minibeast encounters so we can put them on the blog. Here’s today’s challenge:

Whatever WILD THINGS you see today write down a list and send a photo of what is in your local park or back yard or garden. Let’s work out what kinds of wildlife are living in and around Clayton.

Send your photos or short videos in and I'll put them up on our school blog

STAY SAFE, BE ACTIVE, GO WILD!

Friday 5th June Challenges

Date: 5th Jun 2020 @ 7:57am

Ahoy Reception Mates!!!

This half term our Friday challenges are going to be a little bit different. We are going to set you a list of 6 activities that you will have to complete over the next 6 weeks. Each Friday you will pick one activity on the challenge sheet and complete it. You don’t need to do all 6 activities in one day, you will complete them over the next 6 weeks. We wonder which challenge you will pick first…?

Watch the video at the bottom of the blog where we are explaining each activity. We have also attached the challenge sheet along with some ideas and information to the blog.  For more ideas visit the Cbeebies Pirate section that has lots of games, shows and ideas to help you with your Friday  challenges.

Special Treasure Chest Hunt

Date: 4th Jun 2020 @ 9:16am

Ahoy me hearties!

Who would like to take part in a special treasure hunt?

For this activity, you will need to use your egg carton treasure chest (please refer to the ‘Treasure Box Craft’ blog) or you can use an empty box!

In this activity, you first have to find lots of different items and materials to fill your chest. Can you find…..

An old CD, shiny ribbon, aluminium foil, small mirror, key, glass bead, wood/natural materials, wooden brick, bark, twig, shell, leaf, feather, pebble, net, velvet, lace, wool, fur, felt, cotton, plastic?

Now, jumble up all the contents together. Can the children sort them in separate special treasure boxes? Let children use a magnifying glass (if you have one) to look closely at some of their treasure.

Parents can choose a selection of treasures to use for the treasure hunt, you could hide them around your house or garden and leave clues for children to follow!

Have fun! I can’t wait to see what treasure you have found in your chest! J
