Homework: Are Carrots Orange?

Read it!

Say it!

Practise it!

  • What books can you find and read about healthy eating? In class we will be reading: Oliver’s Vegetables, I will never not ever eat a tomato and Handa’s Surprise.
  • Write a review of this book. Tell us about your favourite part of the story and why..

By encouraging students to think and speak using sophisticated phrasing, they are more likely to internalise it and use it confidently in their writing.

Read, learn and use the key vocabulary listed below. Work together to incorporate the vocabulary into a conversation

  • Healthy, exercise, food groups, carbohydrates, proteins, dairy, fats and sugars, fruits and vegetables, growing, allotment.

addition, subtraction, counting, more, fewer, one more, one less, compare, agree, disagree

 

  • Practise your phonics sounds using your Read Write Inc rhymes and read your books every day.
  • Experiment with different ways to learn them, e.g. writing them out, songs on YouTube, reciting them aloud or asking someone to test you. 
  • Practice writing your sounds with correct letter formation using our Read Write Inc rhymes.

Make it!

Write it!

Share it!

We are learning all about healthy eating this term.

Make a healthy recipe with your family. Can you bring us photos in and share it?

Write your recipe down so that we can make it too!

Can you and your family share your favourite playground games? Talk about how they help to keep you fit and healthy. Can you invent a new game?

A note to parents,

Over the course of this half term please work with your child to complete the above. Each of the activities has been designed to support, enhance and enrich an aspect of the curriculum. We are looking forward to seeing the results of your work together. We are all very grateful for your support! Please hand all homework in by Monday 23rd March 2020

In addition, we will be looking for every child to read at home with their parents every evening. Listening to children read will enable them to grow in confidence as they become fluent readers. Once children are able to read fluently and with expression and engage in discussion around their comprehension of the texts will be equally beneficial.

 

What are we learning?

How can I help at home?

One of the key ways every parent can help is to ensure that your child is at school every day and on time. Other than this, the main way you can help is by ensuring that your child reads every day, for at least 10 minutes with you, it is the most effective way of ensuring that your child progresses and learns outside of school.

Additional Information

We are always making lots of amazing creations using junk modelling. Please may we have any of your recyclable materials from home.

We are also collecting old pots, pans and utensils to develop our outside area. We would be very grateful for any donations.

At the end of every term, we will invite you in to share your child’s learning with them and to look at their books. This term the date for this will be Thursday 26th March 2020 at 3pm.  

In Reception, we are keen explorers and spend lots of time in the garden. We will go out no matter what the weather! As the weather, gets colder and wetter please ensure your child is in school with a waterproof coat. We ask all children to keep a pair of named wellington boots at school to use throughout the year. Please pass these on to your class teacher.

If you have any questions, please talk to Miss Hall and Mrs Macnamara

Thank you,

Miss Hall and Mrs Macnamara
