If this is your first visit to this website site, please read the next few paragraphs to familiarise yourself with the setup and function of this website.
This is a template blog post in which I share the daily adult led input normally delivered to the children in my reception class.
In this blog post there is a phonics input, a sentence writing input and a maths input; please see the relevant section below).
The wording of this blog post will be the same every day, with only the ‘teaching input’ content changing. This will allow me to post quicker, with less typos and allow regular visitors to become familiar with the structure so they can focus on delivering the content to the children in their care.
The goal of this website is to inform, rather than entertain adults, so they can support the progress of the children.
Please note, I have created this website as this information doesn’t easily fit on Class Dojo, the normal platform I use to communicate with the parents of the children in my class. This means that the content posted is based on my class’s needs and current place in our curriculum.
Parents outside of Rabbit Class are more than welcome to use this content to support their children learning at home, however I will not be taking requests to create specific videos. The children of Rabbit class are my priority.
The home teaching section:
This term we are recapping all of the phase 3 program.
Today we are learning about ‘ow’. Here is a 1 minute overview of the sound. It is designed to be used as a reference guide for parents on the correct sound pronunciation and letter formation. I have previously posted this on Class Dojo.
Following on from the above, here is today’s session which has a reading focus.
If you are interested in finding out more about our phonics teaching strategy, please click here.
Today’s sentence should be “Wow look at that big cow.”. Please ask the children to remind you of the three things we need for a sentence – a capital letter, finger spaces and a full stop.
Ideas for a phonically decodable extra sentence the children could attempt to write with support from you and their sound mats are:
A big cow.
The cow has horns.
The cow has udders.
This week we are focusing on ‘length, height and distance’. Today we are thinking about distance.
For today’s session you will need some paper, a pencil and a ball. The key vocabulary to emphasize to the children is:
- Far, further and furthest
The children and you will throw a ball and then use steps to measure how far the ball has been thrown. Each person will get three attempts. Please note the distances in the table shown in the video. You will then be able to see who can throw the ball the furthest in your family. Again, as with yesterday, the idea is for the children to explore and investigate the idea of measuring, the real life application of numbers, ordering results and comparing data.
Thank you as always for your support.
