Week Beginning 13th July
Here is your weekly learning log for this week:
We have also put together lots of activities you could complete over the holidays. Mrs Cockerell would love to hear about all the challenges you complete when you are back in school in September!
Mrs Cockerell has recorded another little video for you to answer lots of your questions:
6th July 'Hello' from Mrs Cockerell:
Please send in any work your complete so it can be shared with Mrs Cockerell.
NUMBOTS is now available for you to play!
Login details are being sent home via ParentMail. When you have logged in your child can play lots of great games to develop their number skills.
As they correctly answer questions in the 'Story Mode' they will progress through the levels and the 'Challenge Mode' will be unlocked. Children can then complete timed challenges to build confidence and speed as they learn key number facts.
To make the most out of NumBots it is recommended that your child adopts a 'little and often' approach.
If you have any questions or would like any further information please speak to Mrs Lee or Mrs Trott.
For a selection of picture books to listen to visit:
Mrs Lee and Mrs Trott will continue to communicate with Reception Class regularly via Tapestry. This is a fantastic way for parents in Reception class to continue to share their learning, exploration and fun at home.
If you are having any difficulties in accessing Tapestry please contact the school office.
Oxford Owl A great site with various activities and games. A super feature of this site is that there are also lots of eBooks to read. You have to register to access these but it is free and easy to do.
RWI eBooks Lots of eBooks to read like the phonics books your child was bringing home from school.
BBC Nursery Rhymes Lots of nursery rhymes and counting songs to sing along and listen to.
Teddy Counting Drag the correct number of treats to the hungry teddy! You choose to play the game with numbers up to 5, 10 or 15.
Two games great for counting and ordering numbers up to 10:

Counting Caterpillar Drag the leaves to the branch in order from smallest to largest for the greedy caterpillar to much!

Chopper Squad Find the number that is one more or one less than the given number up to 20.
Shape Patterns Train Look carefully at the repeating patterns on the carriages. Can you name each shape? Which shape comes next? Make sure you look at the shape and the colour!
Funky Mummy Add together the numbers up to 10, find the doubles or challenge yourself to solve the number bonds up to 10. Click on the answer and the 'Funky Mummy' will do a funny dance!
Post a Letter A great game for number recognition. Listen to the number and then post the letter in the house with the matching number.
Addition to 10 Count the animals carefully to solve the addition calculations.
Ways to make 10 Use the teddies to explore number bonds up to 10.
Maths Machine Find one more than the given number. You can select numbers up to 3, 5 10 or 20.
Higher or Lower? Either count the objects or identify the numeral and guess whether the next card will be higher or lower. Try to use lots of 'maths talk' with words like more, less, fewer and greater when you compare the amounts or numbers.
Phonics Support for parents
When playing phonics games we suggest you set the activity to focus on sounds you child has been previously taught.
Forest Phonics Gently squish the snail and then listen carefully! Use your 'Fred Fingers' and then drag the letter tiles to build the word.
Dinosaur Eggs Phonics Game Listen to the word and then click on the egg to match.
Poop Deck Pirates Phonics Game Use your 'Fred Talk' to read the word. Then pop it in the treasure chest if it is a real word or the bin if it is a silly 'alien word'.
Phonics Play Lots of different phonics games to choose from to support developing phonics knowledge. The site normally has a few free games which the children will be familiar with from school. Additionally the site is temporarily offering access to all of the games without subscription by using: Username: march20 Password: home
