Year R – Monday’s Home Learning

Year R Home learning for Monday 29th June

Subject focus What we need to learn: How we might learn it:
Literacy Children listen to stories, accurately anticipating key events and respond to what they hear with relevant comments, questions or actions.

This week’s topic theme is ‘Sport’

Watch and listen to the story ‘Ready Steady Mo’ written by athlete Mo Farah on youtube:

Talk about the story with your child. Can you make up your own run sentences verbally e.g. Run to the bath. Run around the garden. Run down the path. etc.  

Offline alternative:

Alternatively choose your own sports themed book and talk about the events with your child. Can they make up some of their own sentences about what happened?

Maths Children count reliably with numbers from one to 20.

Sports number challenge

Label up to ten cups with numbers between 10 and 20.  

Step 1: Ask your child to throw a ball or a rolled up pair of socks into a cup. 

Step 2: When the ball lands in a cup ask your child to say the number on the cup..

Step 3: Challenge your child to complete the given number of physical exercises e.g. If they get a 10 challenge them to do ten star jumps. 

Repeat the game for other numbers.

Other:  Children use what they have learnt about media and materials in original ways, thinking about uses and purposes.

Paper plate bats 

You will need:  2 paper plates (or card cut into circles) and lolly sticks (or other kinds of stick).

Ask your child to decorate the two paper plates with their choice of design.  When they have finished decorating the plates, stick the lolly sticks on the back of the plates to make two bats. Note: You will need a balloon to go with these bats for tomorrow’s activity.

Remember to email the school to let us know how you’ve got on. We’d love to see examples of what you’ve been up to.
