Year R – Tuesday’s Home Learning

Year R Home learning for Tuesday 30th June

Subject focus What we need to learn: How we might learn it:
Literacy Children use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds. They also write some irregular common words. They write simple sentences which can be read by themselves and others. Some words are spelt correctly and others are phonetically plausible.

Watch the ‘Ready Steady Mo’ story again on Youtube: 

Information for those without YouTube access:  The story talks about all the places you can run. Talk with your child about all the places they could run.

Ask your child to write some sentences about where they can run (e.g I can run to the park.). Encourage them to use their sounds to write. It is ok if some of the words are not spelt completely correctly as long as the sounds are appropriate (e.g. path = parth, garden = gardoon). Encourage your child to read their sentences to you after they have finished.

Maths  Using quantities and objects, children add two single-digit numbers and count on to find the answer.

Label up to ten cups with some of the numbers  0 to 10.

Step 1: Ask your child to throw 2  balls or rolled up pairs of socks into the numbered cups.

Step 2: Ask your child to say the numbers on the cups where the balls landed.

Step 3:  Ask your child to add the two numbers together to find the total. Encourage them to count on from the largest number.

Extra challenge: Can your child write the corresponding number sentence e.g. 7 + 3 = 10

Repeat for other pairs of numbers.


Physical development

Children show good control and co-ordination in large and small movements.

Paper Plate Balloon Tennis

You will need: The bats you made yesterday

                       A balloon

Using the paper plate bats from yesterday, play tennis with your child.  

Note: If you do not have a balloon you could play this game using a balled up pair of socks and your hands.

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.
