Good morning Reception

I hope that you are all well and ready for today’s learning. Let’s get started!

Look at the lifecycle of a frog that you stuck in your orange book on Tuesday. Talk about how stages in the lifecycle compare/contrast with each other, e.g. A tadpole and froglet both have a tail or A frog is big and green but a tadpole is small and black. Now I want you to try to write your own comparison sentences just like these ones that I have written. You might need some help with this as it’s a bit of a challenge. It is important that you say the sentence out loud first before you write it. Count the words on your fingers and hold the sentence in your head. That will really help you to remember what to write.

The next writing activity that I want you to do can be done in the orange book. Look at the pictures of a tadpole and a frog (resources in the pack). Try and draw them in the book. Identify their different body parts. Then I want you to write labels for the different parts of their body. Can you write a caption to go with each picture?

Maths – Please make the clock using the Clock Face Template and the split pin that I put in your pack. You will need someone to show you what 1 o’clock looks like on the clock. Spend some time putting the clock hands in the right places to make 1 o’clock, 2 o’clock, 3 o’clock and so on. Now I want you to find the 5 pieces of paper that all stick together to make a long Class Timetable. There will be white squares with stars as the background. There are 8 white boxes for you to fill. I want you to draw pictures and write a sentence to show me what you did at 9 o’clock this morning, 10 o’clock, 11 o’clock, 12 o’clock, 1 o’clock, 2 o’clock, 3 o’clock and 4 o’clock

If I was to do it based on my activities today, this is what I would write:

9 o’clock – I had a shower and got dressed.

10 o’clock – I sat at my kitchen table doing some online learning for myself.

11 o’clock - I was still sat at my kitchen table doing some online learning until it was finished.

12 o’clock – I went to drop my dog off at the dog grooming shop because her hair was long and scruffy and she looked like a mop!

1 o’clock – I went for a walk all across the golf course with my daughter Jess.

2 o’clock – I watched a video on YouTube because Mrs Bolton asked me to, to learn about how schools might be opening again soon.

3 o’clock – I went to pick the dog up from the grooming shop. She looks like a big, white rat now with a fluffy tail!

4 o’clock – I had a zoom meeting with Mrs Bolton and some of the other teachers. This was a special meeting where we could all see each other on our laptops.

When you have finished drawing the pictures and writing about them, you can take your time colouring them in. The whole thing is a record of how you spend your day. I am in school tomorrow so my day will be very different.

Have a great day, whatever you are doing.

Mrs Abram
