Foundation home learning activities - Anything you do, please upload up to EExAT or Dojo. Your teachers are loving seeing what you are up to!

It is the final week of the school year!  This week we will focus on the good things we have achieved in Reception and begin to think about changes and moving on into Year 1.

Read the Story of The Cautious Caterpillar with your grown up. You can find the PowerPoint in the attachments above. Talk about the changes Cody has to face, she is unsure and worried at times. Explain it is ok to be feeling worried about changes, but they can also be very exciting too.

Spreading your wings...

After reading the story – The Cautious Caterpillar, have a go at completing the Spreading My Wings Sheet. Your child will be spreading their wings as they move on into Year 1.

Think about your friends from Reception, what you are good at..., what do you like learning...and something you want to get better at as you move into Year 1.

(If you do not have access to a printer, talk about the different sections or even draw your own butterfly and add your writing.)

A Letter to My New Teacher...

This week you will find out who your New Teacher is in Year 1.

Can you write your new teacher a letter?

In your letter, introduce yourself and include lots of interesting facts e.g. who you live with? Do you have any pets? What are your hobbies/What do you like doing or playing with? What is your favourite colour or food? Etc.

Ask your new teacher a question – is there something you want to ask about Year 1?

Also don’t forget to draw a picture.

Take a photograph of your letter and send it on ClassDojo, then Miss Pyper and Mrs Johnson can share it with your new teacher:

     Miss McKee              or       Miss Esslemont

Moving on...

Talk to your child about moving into Year 1.

How are they feeling?

Are they excited? Worried? What are they looking forward to doing in Year 1?

Encourage your child to talk about their thoughts and feelings and discuss ways of overcoming any worries they may have, such as visiting their new classroom and meeting their new teacher.

If your child is feeling worried about something. This is a nice story to share with them – The Huge Bag of Worries. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBcakxX9LTM

Be Sporty...

This week in school we will be having a mini Sports Day in our bubbles.

Can you have a sports day at home with your family?

Set up a racetrack or even make an obstacle course. Race your family members. Who was the winner?

Alternatively, set a timer. How fast can you complete your race?

Practise your throwing skills – set up a throwing challenge using a ball and a bucket(s). Can you aim and get your ball in the bucket? How many times?

Share your pictures we would love to see them!

Be a Mathematician...

Revisit a range of maths skills by completing these maths questions. Encourage your child to talk about how they worked out the answer.

Can they make up their own maths questions?

Have a lovely Summer!
