Week commencing 8th June 2020

Hello reception,

September 2020: In order to give your child the best start in year 1,I would advise lots and lots and lots and reading! Reading to your child, hearing your child read, reading flash cards, or words written on paper, sharing picture books, letting your child read a book to a younger sibling as they look at the pages together.

If you child has a good grasp on reading this will open so many learning opportunities for them in year 1, in their school life and beyond.

The power of reading is endless.

This week's activities and ideas are based around the book Oliver's vegetables. All the activities and ideas can be done without the book so do not worry if you have not got it : )

Please see the the link below to take you directly to the whiterose maths page where it will give you ideas and activities for each day:

Please see the document below for an oversight of this week's learning.

  • keep it fun
  • keep it simple
  • do only what you can

I hope you are all safe and well.

Miss Farrell.

Best Ever No-Cook Play Dough Recipe

You need:

 

Method:

  • Mix the flour, salt, cream of tartar and oil in a large mixing bowl
  • Add food colouring TO the boiling water then into the dry ingredients
  • Stir continuously until it becomes a sticky, combined dough
  • Add the glycerine (optional)
  • Allow it to cool down then take it out of the bowl and knead it vigorously for a couple of minutes until all of the stickiness has gone. * This is the most important part of the process, so keep at it until it’s the perfect consistency!*
  • If it remains a little sticky then add a touch more flour until just right
