Home Learning - 13.5.20

Home Learning - 13.5.20

Good morning Reception. Well done for all your super work at home. We are so proud of you ALL! We cannot wait to see you next. Be sure to get those home learning books filled up to show off when we return to school.  


Each day of school closure, the Ruth Miskin team will be uploading a Set 1, Set 2 and Set 3 Speed Sounds lesson video to Youtube. We will be following the Set 1 videos. These will be sounds that your child has learned in class already. You will be recapping these sounds at home which will hopefully give your child a sense of confidence. 

Today (13.5.20) the video will be focusing on the sound ‘th’.  

After practising writing the sound in your book, please then recap writing the sounds ‘e’ and ‘s’ just as we did last term. 

Now can you try writing these three words? 

‘this’ ‘them’ ‘thing’ (ng is another special friend that you might not have looked at yet. Fred talk the word ‘thing’ (th-i-ng) to hear how it sounds. 

No-tech phonics 

Alternatively, you can recap the sound ‘th’ with your child yourself. 

Draw a picture of a ‘tower and horse’ just like the one on the Read Write Inc flashcard. 

Now practise writing ‘this’ ‘them’ and ‘thing’. (ng is another special friend that you might not have looked at yet. Fred talk the word ‘thing’ (th-i-ng) to hear how it sounds. 

Writing activity 

Read the poem together. Can you make a number poem? Have an adult write it down. You could tell your adult what sound each word starts with to help them! 



Today we will be practising writing numbers up to 20! If you need to use the rhymes to help you, go back to yesterdays blog post to find them. 

Practise writing each number (from 10 to 20) in your home learning book and draw that many dots next to it. 

For example: 

10 . . . . . . . . . .  

11 . . . . . . . . . . .  



Use this random number generator (grownups – set the numbers from 0 – 20) to select a number to practise writing. Practise writing the numbers with whatever you have to make it more fun (chalkboard, whiteboard, bath crayons, coloured pens).  


Draw the life cycle of an acorn. Here are the stages that should be included: 


In the story ‘Little Acorn’ many seasons pass. On a piece of paper, split the page into four parts. Draw a picture of each season: spring, summer, autumn and winter. Talk to grown up about what’s happening in each season.
