Book of The Week

This week I have a new book for us to share, It's called 'How to grow a dinosaur' by Caryl Hart and Ed Eaves. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZfpSmH6NJic Have a listen! 

What did you think about the story? Did you enjoy it? What was your favourite part? What do you think is going to happen next?

What kind of magic seeds would you grow in your garden? What would happen when the seeds began to grow?

Can you draw a picture and write a sentence to describe your magic seeds?

Remember to use your 'robot arms' to help you hear all the sounds you need to write. Get ready to chop those sentences and count how many words you need to write too. 

This Weeks Writing Acitivity

I need your help Reception! I have a packet of magic seeds, but I have forgotten how to plant them. Can you help me? Do you think you could write some instructions to tell me how to plant my seeds? If you could, that would be amazing. Think about what you did when you planted your sunflower seeds, that should help you. 

Here is a little treat for you all. Watch Peppa Pig and George plant some seeds in their garden. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-4J_0vpszM

Can you explore your garden today? Are there any unusual plants growing? Do you have a dinosaur plant? Hehe! What can you see? 



 https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/early-years/  White Rose offers daily maths activites, have a look at this weeks activites and have a go. They look like lots of fun!


Can you learn about the number 18? What do you already know about the number 18? Here is an episode of Numberblocks to help you a little.


Can you write the number? Can you count 18 objects? Can you split 18 objects into 2 groups? One group of 10 and one group of 8? (18 is 10 and 8)


While you're outside in the garden today, look out for all those worms. I'll leave you with one of our favourite songs. Can you remember how to sign? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqchPrhezxQ


Have a lovely day Reception, I will write to you all tomorrow.

Take care heart
