The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Good morning Reception children, parents and carers.  

Today your child will bring home a exercise book for you to use for completing homework task when appropriate.  Inside you will see your child's first set of targets which we are working on at school.  This book should not come back to school.  You can photograph pages if you wish to share the work with us.  We love to see the work you all put in at home.  I am hoping to get the Numbots log in sent home asap as I know many of our children enjoy that. 

This week we have continued our topic of growth and change and enjoyed activities to do with the wonderful story The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.  This story introduces us to the life-cycle of a butterfly, the days of the week and gives us lots of fruit and snacks to count.  Below is the animated video of the story but before you watch it please tell your grown up what happens in the story.  Can you say the days of the week in order?

Below are some lovely ideas for activities to do at home.  You do not need to to all of them but pick 1 or 2 to have a go at over the next week. 

This week in Maths lessons, as well as counting and saying the days of the week, we have been continuing and creating patterns with finger paints, pegs, cubes, beads and stickers.  The following is a great game to play at home.  Start with level 1 and progress to level 2 and 3 when your ready.


Shape Patterns

Shapes patterns is a free, shapes sequencing game where children need to complete a sequence of different coloured 2D shapes. For children from 3 to 8 years.

Finally the sounds we learnt this week are:

t (bounce the sound t t t like a ticking clock)   Formation Rhyme: down and round the tower, cross the tower.

d (bounce the sound d d d)  Formation rhyme: round the dinosaur's bottom, up its tall neck, down it's neck and give it a foot. 

With the sounds we have learnt so far the children should now be able to sound out and blend together the following words.







Have a go at home

Shabbat Shallom and have a lovely weekend.  Remember there is no school on Monday as it is Yom Kippur.
