Welcome

How do you feel welcomed into Reception? Look at the photograph above for some ideas.. Share ways in which these children are being welcomed into school.  Invite the children to share their memories of how they were welcomed into school on their first day. Discuss what it means to be ‘Welcomed’ – to belong and feel part of a group.How do the children know and feel like  they belong to our Reception class. Create a welcome sign with hand prints or decorate a ‘welcome’ card to give to someone in class.

ENGLISH

Share the story Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers.

Read the story together and then draw a storymap of the beginning.   Draw the first 3 parts of the story and an adult can support by writing your sentences.  Can your child write their name and any initial sounds?.  The main parts of the story are:

1. At the beginning the penguin knocks at the door where the boy lives.

2. The penguin is feeling very sad and follows the boy everywhere.

3. Then the boy and penguin go on a journey to take the penguin home.

 

PHONICS

   

 

Share the sound ‘d’ and ‘t’ with your child.

.Form the letter using your finger in the air and introduce a writing tool to mark make on paper; ‘Round the dinosaurs bottom up his long neck and down to his toes’ and ‘ down the tower, across the tower’.

Play the ‘I spy’ game, finding things around the home that start with ‘d’ and ‘t’

Can they find some things in the house that have the sound ‘m’ and ‘s’

Can they draw them and write ‘d’ and ‘t’ letter shapes?
