1. The Daily Five - Maths
We are going to teach time this week! We only teach o'clock and half-past times in Reception Class. Following last week's activities, they will now have a concept about minutes. Using this analogue clock, show the o'clock times along with the message, "when the big hand is at the top it is o'clock. The little hand is the bossy hand - that tells us the number." The children use the online analogue clock and their own craft clock (from last week) to explore o'clock times.
2. The Daily Five - Literacy
On Mondays, we usually write our weekend news.
Foxes Group - write what you have done this week using the words, 'first', 'next' and 'finally'. Draw a picture and label.
Rabbits Group - draw a detailed picture, thinking carefully about shapes and colours about what you have done this week. With adult support, write at least three labels and copy the adult's sentence.
3. The Daily Five - Outside Time
Draw and colour in six Easter eggs, perhaps decorating with patterns (adults you could show your child how to draw different patterns, other than using colour e.g. cross, heart, cross, heart). Discuss the shape 'oval'. The children can hide these Easter eggs in the garden ready for their family to find!
4. The Daily Five - Project
This week, we are going to develop our portrait skills. Today, using a mirror, your child can look at their different features thinking carefully about colours and shapes. Questions to explore with your child include: Are our eyes really circles? What colour are your pupils? How long is your hair? What shade is your skin? Do you have rosy cheeks?
Then draw their face on A4 paper....nice and big!
5. The Daily Five - Reading
We are thinking about the 'th' digraph today. Check your child knows the following digraphs first: ch, sh, th, qu, ng. Don't worry about using a dice.
Foxes Group - using the game in the 'resources' section below, how quickly can you read the words? Can you beat your score?
Rabbits Group - be a 'Diagraph Detective', spotting the digraphs and naming them.
