Home Learning - 31.3.20
Welcome to day 7 of Home Learning. You are doing a great job.
Good Morning Reception,
Here are your challenges for home learning today:
Todays sound is ‘ng’ (as in ‘thing on a string)
You say: ‘ng’
They say ‘ng’
You say ‘ng – thing on a string’
They say ‘ng – thing on a string’
Show them the picture of the Read Write Inc ‘ng’ (see blog post picture. Look at the picture on the ‘ng’ tile. “thing on a string”. Point out to your child that there are two letters that make one sound – ng. Have your child practice writing it in the air. Now they can practice writing a line of ‘ng’ in their home learning book. We recap 2 handwriting patters every day. Today our recap sounds are ‘s’ and ‘w’. Again, please refer to your handwriting patter sheet. Now it is time to practice oral blending.
You say ‘d – I – ng’
They say ‘ding’
You say ‘d – I – ng ding’
They say ‘d – I – ng ding’
Repeat with the words ‘dong’ and ‘bang’.
Now they can practice writing those words in their home learning book.
Don't forget to read your book or access some of the online reading links.
We follow the Read Write Inc scheme of work from Ruth Miskin. RWI are making speed sound videos which are available for 2 weeks every day from 9.30. This would be a great way of starting your phonics lesson. Please see link -
Practice your addition with numbers up to 20.
Remember to hold the first number in your head, put the second number on your fingers and count on.
Try answering these questions in your home learning books. You can either use objects to help count on practically or challenge yourself by counting on in your head and on your fingers.

Superheroes – today you are going to make a superhero vehicle. Collect any clean recycling you can find in your house – card, plastic bottles, loo rolls, tissue boxes, etc… Use these to create a special superhero vehicle. Remember to give it special features.
Challenge: Draw and label your superhero vehicle in your home learning book. Can you write a sentence? “My car is red. It has a jet pack.”
