Hello,

If you are a parent from Rabbit Class and this is not your first visit to this website, please click here to jump to today’shome teaching section’.

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:

Phonics

This term we are recapping all of the phase 3 program.

Today we are learning about ‘ar’. 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.

This video is based on a presentation from Twinkl.

If you are interested in finding out more about our phonics teaching strategy, please click here.

Sentence Writing

Today’s sentence should be “Looking at shooting stars.”. 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.

Image taken fro here.

Ideas for a phonically decodable extra sentence the children could attempt to write with support from you and their sound mats are:

A man sitting on the roof.

A car and stars.

I can see stars.

Maths

This week we are focusing on introducing 3D shapes to the children. Each day we will be talking about a different shape. I will be mentioning the number of face, edges and corners – the children do not need to memorise ‘how many’ for each shape, instead they just need an awareness of what they are.

For today’s session you will not need any equipment. We will be talking about cylinders. It would be great if you could ‘hunt’ for cylinders throughout the day, pointing them out to children around your home and environment as you go about your day.

When you find a cylinder, please double check the properties, (faces, edges, and corners) with the children. Please highlight the difference between a flat and a curved face.

Please do not feel pressure to send me a photo of every cylinder you find. I trust you guys 100% and I know you are doing an awesome job at home.

Thank you as always for your support.
