Our topic this term is Fairy Tales.
In Reception, learning has its foundations in play-based activities so whilst we're closed, providing opportunities at home for role play, small-world play, exploring textures, making structures, running and jumping will all contribute to the children's ongoing learning alongside the following:
We are pleased to let you know that your child can receive a daily phonics lesson whilst schools are closed. Phonics is the way we teach children to recognise the sounds in words. It helps your child to learn to read and is an essential part of your child’s education. During the summer term, you will be able to access for your child a daily phonics lesson by clicking on Letters and Sounds for home and school. All lessons are introduced by celebrities, including children’s TV presenters, which adds an exciting addition to the lessons. See the letter here that explains more.
Extra phonics practise:
You will have received a Phonics workbook and CVC workbook to practise sounds. You can access Jolly Phonics to help with sounding out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2HYM9VXz9k
Also, Alphablocks is a useful resource for phonics work: https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/shows/alphablocks
Remember you can follow Bug Club for some brilliant reading or click read to me once a book is opened.
Phonic activities/games can also be played here.
