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 recapping ‘air’, ‘er’ and ‘ure’. Here are three 1 minute overview videos of each sound. Each is designed to be used as a reference guide for parents on the correct sound pronunciation and letter formation. I have previously posted these on Class Dojo.
Following on from the above, here is today’s session which has a writing focus.
If you are interested in finding out more about our phonics teaching strategy, please click here.
There is no sentence writing today as the phonics session has a writing element that may need more attention than normal as the focus of the session is split across three sounds instead of one, as per previous sessions.
This week we are focusing on ‘weight’.
For today’s session you will need a ‘stand on’ scale if you have one to weigh your own objects, or you could just discuss with your child why something that is smaller (but denser) may weigh more than something that is bigger as shown in the video.
Thank you as always for your support.
