Week beginning 14th December 2020 - Merry Christmas! 

Hi everyone! Mrs Dutfield here! Merry Christmas from all of the staff at Ocker Hill Infants! Hope you are well and safe and enjoying some festivities. This week there are many Christmas themed tasks that you can join in with as well as lessons the children will be enjoying at school such as Maths and Phonics. We are also celebrating a Caribbean Christmas in school, so have fun celebrating with us too! The weekly overview is saved above explaining all of your lessons and resources and links are saved below. Remember to send your work to our home learning email, we would love to hear from you! Best wishes, Mrs Dutfield x

Phonics

In our phonics sessions, we personalise the learning to the specific groups and their learning needs in school. The lessons revisit tricky and common exceptions words as well as introducing new sight words and a new sound. Your child then progresses to reading (blending) and spelling words including their new sound, as well as reading and writing captions with their new sound.

 

Your child’s teachers have provided daily phonic lessons for this week. Mrs Dutfield’s voiceover is attached to the lesson to aid your child’s pronunciation. Hope this proves helpful! Remember to pause at the challenges and see if your child can practice blending and using a notepad, practice their spelling using their new sounds.

 

 Phonics lesson with Mrs Dutfield- Phase 3 phonics with Mrs Dutfield week 14.12.20.pptx

Christmas Crafts- cutting skills

Your teachers invite you to join them with some fine motor development this week by practicing cutting skills. This must always be supervised by an adult. Twinkl have provided a colour, cut and decorate task for Frosty the Snowman! Can your child dress the snowman? Allow them to make their own creative choices, and remember, that although their cutting may not be perfect at the moment, practice makes perfect! To make cutting a little easier, in school we sometimes draw a thick circle around the items so the children can focus upon that instead of the intricate details of a hat!  

 

Alternatively, if this is a little tricky at the moment for your child, Twinkl have provided a Christmas cutting skills task with larger pictures and clear dotted lines. Your child may want to create a Christmas poster or stick some of the decorations on your tree, fridge or in their bedroom!  

 

Myself and your teachers would love to see your cutting skills so please send them to our home learning email so we can share in your fun! Enjoy!

'A Caribbean Christmas' Celebration 

In school this week the teachers and children are celebrating a Caribbean Christmas! Last year our school learnt all about Jamaica, and this year we are learning about Christmas in Barbados!

Your teachers have provided a lesson to teach us all about Barbados with Barnaby Bear! This is a such a fun, interactive lesson where you learn about the local food, weather, celebrations and you can even join in with some dancing! Here are some ideas of how you can celebrate-

 

-       Taste test some Barbadian food that is explained during the lesson! Yum! The BBC good food website  https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/tropical-breakfast-smoothie invites you to make a breakfast smoothie using the fruits of Barbados. There are also many other yummy recipes for your family to choose from!

 

-       Follow this step by step tutorial on how to draw and colour the Barbadian flag!  

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-kayrczq9I

 

-       Listen to some Barbadian instruments and join in with some dancing (links are provided in the session)

 - Find out about one of the Barbadian famous animals, such as fruit bats, dolphins or flamingos! Perhaps you could write some facts about the animal you find out about! Have fun! 

 

Well being- Yoga in a Winter Wonderland

Santa invites you to take on Twinkl’s ‘Yoga in a Winter Wonderland’ challenge! 

They have provided a lesson for you to act out many Christmas characters using yoga poses. You may want to play some calming Christmas music during this session.

The lesson encourages your child to use their imagination and apply their ideas to existing poses. We really hope you enjoy it!

 

Lesson-KS1 Christmas Yoga - Presentation.pptx

Yoga cards-KS1 Christmas Yoga - Activity Cards.pdf

Well being- Mindfulness 

Santa invites you to take care of your mental health this week. He asks, what is mindfulness?

We practice mindfulness routinely at Ocker Hill Infants. We know during our busy days at school we can always use our mindfulness toolkit to stay calm and focused. 

Mindfulness means paying full attention to something. It means slowing down to really notice what you're doing. Being mindful is the opposite of rushing or multitasking. When you're mindful, you're taking your time. You're focusing in a relaxed, easy way.

Cosmic Kids have provided a wonderful short session talking about what mindfulness is (saved below).

The video also offers examples of how to practice mindfulness.

Santa has provided some mindfulness colouring to practice focusing on one, calm task. We do this often at school in short bursts to refresh ourselves in preparation for the next lesson.

 

Hope you enjoy them! - Christmas-Themed-Mindfulness-Colouring-Sheets.pdf

Hello Reception, Mrs Dutfield here! Above this message is your weekly overview, showing what learning you can join in with and enjoy this week! Your friends are enjoying the same activities and lessons at school. the resources, lessons and tasks are also saved below. Your new topic is firefighters! How exciting! Stay safe and have fun learning this week. Don't forget to send your excellent work to our home learning email, we would love to see all your hard work! Best wishes, Mrs Dutfield. 

 

Phonics

In Reception your child will be learning the z, zz, qu, ch and sh sounds this week. Saved onto your homepage there are lessons exploring these sounds. In the lessons the child will revisit the sounds that they know, they will revisit tricky words they know and will also learn new tricky words for the week. You may want to ensure your child has a notepad ready as they may need to join in with some interactive activities during the session. These sounds are broken down into individual lessons so break these up into daily sessions.  

 

**These lessons have Mrs Dutfield’s voice over added for each lesson for your to listen to. This will aid your child’s pronunciation of sounds, which is vital for reading and writing progression.

Additionally, Twinkl also provide a video live lesson for each of these sounds. You might therefore want to break your child’s learning up across the week. Young children learn better through short bursts of learning. Find the videos below, enjoy!

Writing

In Reception this week your child is learning all about Firefighters and fire engines! In the ‘The World’ section of this overview there are some non-fiction videos and stories for you to share with your child to learn all about this subject. Share all of this information with your child before completing the writing task.

Begin the task by encouraging your child to orally label the fire engine. Can your child name the parts of the fire engine independently?

Added onto your homepage is a voice over page of Mrs Dutfield segmenting each word for your child. Encourage your child to find the sounds on the sound mat and label the fire engine. You can print the labelling page or alternatively draw the fire engine and label in a notepad you have at home. A sound mat is saved onto the voice over page and on your home page below too.

Mathematics

This term, the children are learning about subitising. Young children have a remarkable skill, they can recognise numbers of things without counting.  This is called subitising, and it develops from a very early age. Young children also have powerful visual memories and some may find it easier to remember images than words. Subitising can help children to build images for numbers, to visualise and to learn number facts. For instance, most four-year-olds readily learn to recognise five dots on a dice, which helps them to then recognize five cars on a car park, which they can link to the word and symbol for 5. Structured images like this also help children to begin to see numbers inside numbers, for instance seeing four and one within five.

 

Lesson- Your child’s teachers have provided a lesson to explore this skill. Share this with your child and prepare your child for the session by having different objects in front of them to count, use and compare. Your child will be making numbers 1-10 in different ways and will practice looking at sets of objects in unfamiliar ways and making sense of that number. A tens frame is also saved on your homepage for your child to arrange objects on in different ways.

Task- Your child’s teachers have prepared a simple task where your child arranges objects in different ways on a tens frame (like above). Provide your child with a range of small items to count with such as, lego, counters, buttons, sweets, fingers etc. Can your child arrange the ‘amount’ in different ways on their tens frame (as below) and still see that the total is ten. Challenge your child by making an unfamiliar arrangement yourself and ask your child to tell you how many items are there. As modelled below, your child will still have made 5 but will have arranged them in different ways. They may say ‘I can see 3 + 2, 4 +1 but they are both still 5’.

Being Creative!

In Reception this week your child is learning all about Firefighters and fire engines! 

As part of this the children in Reception are getting creative and making their own fire engine models! Your child can do this in a variety of ways! These are detailed below. Have fun, and don’t forget to send us some photos of your creations to our home learning email!

 

-       Make a large scale fire engine outdoors using boxes, craft materials or construction bricks

-       Make a junk model fire engine using boxes, paint and paper to decorate

-       Make a fire engine using construction toys at home such as Lego or Duplo.

 

Remember to research some images of fire engines using technology at home to give your child direction and inspiration. Prompt your child’s creativity and discussion by asking ‘how could we make a ladder? What size do the windows have to be?’.

 

Physical Challenge!

Invite your child to take on the Firefighters challenge! Ask your child to select their favourite music ready for the session. Model and explain the movements and instructions below. Shout the actions out to your child and see if they can listen and respond appropriately. Have fun!

 

-       LADDER! Child should be standing with arms stretched up, and pretend to climb a tall ladder. You can adapt this by adding ‘climb the ladder quickly!’ or ‘Climb down the ladder’ where the child begins to crouch.

-       HOSE! Your child will pretend to be a wiggly hose by slithering and rolling on the floor.

-       CLIMB IN! your child will crawl on the floor pretending they are saving someone from a burning building!

FIRE ENGINE! Your child will move quickly around the room pretending to drive the fire engine to an emergency. You can adapt this by shouting BRAKES where your child needs to stop instantly and freeze.

 

Handwriting

First begin with a fine motor warm up, this will help the muscles in your fingers and wrists get stronger! Twinkl have provided a video of five exercises to try :  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oM7aI3RlH4A

Today we are learning about handwriting families. First, take a look at the handwriting families’ poster. All lowercase letters fall into four families: Curly Caterpillar letters, One Armed Robot letters, Ladder letters and Zig Zag monster letters. The poster shows where the starting point is of each letter, shown with a red arrow.

 

A video lesson from Mrs Dutfield is now attached to your home screen to explore Curly Caterpillar Letters. You can use a spare notepad to follow this lesson and practice your letters. If possible, see if your child can use lined paper if they are a capable writer, this supports their development ready for KS1.

Well being 

In school this week we are learning about resolving conflict and taking turns. Share the story ‘It’s My Turn!’ by David Bedford and Elaine Field saved below . Prompt your child’s discussion about this subject by asking the following questions...

-       Have you been frustrated before when your friends won’t share?

-       Do you share at school and at home? When have you shared before?

-       What would you do if a friend would not share?

-       Why do we need to share?

Week beginning 23rd November 2020 

Hello Reception, Miss Silcott and Miss Richards here! Down below is the overview of your tasks for today, it explains what you are learning and what resources you have for each lesson. Below are the resources you will need. Hope you enjoy!

Hello Reception,

Please find below some pictures of Tulips and Poppies classrooms filled with lots of fun activities for you to enjoy. We look forward to returning to school and getting ready for Christmas.

See you very soon,

Miss Silcott and Miss Richards

Phonics

We have been learning our phase 1, 2 and 3 phonics. Below are the activities as follows:

Phase 1: Go on a listening walk and encourage your child to listen to the sounds they can hear. Encourage them to listen attentively. Consider going on a listening walk both indoors and outdoors. Ensure to encourage vocabulary, get them to discriminate between the sounds they hear, recall the various sounds and describe the sounds. The purpose of these tasks is to develop their listening skills and awareness of sounds in the environment.

Activity 1

 Toy talk
 

  • Introduce to the children a soft toy that can only speak in ‘sound-talk’. The children
    see the toy whispering in the adult’s ear. To add to the activity, as the toy whispers
    the adult repeats the sounds, looks puzzled and then says the word straight
    afterwards. For example:What would Charlie like for tea today? The toy speaks
    silently in the adult’s ear and the adult repeats ‘ch-ee-se’ looking puzzled and then,
    says with relief ‘cheese!’
     
  • Now invite the children to see if they can speak like the toy: Do you think you could
    try to toy talk? Say ch-ee-se: (the children repeat ‘ch-ee-se’). Ask the toy again
    What else would you like? Be careful to think of items with names of only single
    syllables (e.g. fish, cake, pie, soup). Use different scenarios: What does the toy like
    to do in the playground? (hop, skip, jump, run, etc.). As the children become more
    confident, make some errors – blend ‘skim’ for ‘skip’, for example, and ask them to
    catch you out by giving the correct blend.
     
  • Encourage the children to ask the toy questions with yes/no answers (e.g. Can you
    sing? Y-e-s/N-o). Or ask the toy the colour of his bike, his bedroom walls, his
    jumper, etc. and the toy will answer r-e-d, b-l-ue, g-r-ee-n, m-au-ve.

Activity 2

Clapping sounds


Think of words using the letters ‘s, a, t, p, i, n’ (e.g. sat, pin, nip, pat, tap, pit, pip) and sound
them out, clapping each phoneme with the children in unison, then blend the phonemes to
make the whole word orally.
As children’s confidence develops, ask individuals to demonstrate this activity to others.

 

Phase 2

We are learning to use our phonetic knowledge to blend and read words. Continue to support your child's early reading skills with the phonics lesson down below. Please download the document to listen to the instructions and understanding of the lesson. Your child will revisit the sounds and tricky words they already know. They will continue to develop their phonetic knowledge of segmenting and blending sounds together to read words and sentences. Furthermore, they will learn a new sound and tricky word everyday. You will need to ensure your child has a notepad ready as they will need to join in with the interactive activities during the session.

Phase 3

We are learning to use our phonetic knowledge to blend and read words. Continue to support your child's early reading skills with the phonics lesson down below. Please download the document to listen to the instructions and understanding of the lesson. Your child will revisit the sounds and tricky words they already know. They will continue to develop their phonetic knowledge of segmenting and blending sounds together to read words and sentences. Furthermore, they will learn a new sound and tricky word every day. You will need to ensure your child has a notepad ready as they will need to join in with the interactive activities during the session.

Mathematics 

The children are learning about counting, adding and subtracting. We have used a range of diverse methods to do this, such as using numbers lines and tens frames. Down below is an interactive addition lesson that we ask of you to download for your child to complete. It explains the purpose of the lesson, reinforces correct terms and vocabulary and critical thinking skills needs to complete a sum. We ask that you continue to encourage vocabulary throughout the lesson and ensure your child has a notepad and something to write with as they will need to join in with the interactive lesson.

Snappy maths:

Counting with Jack Hartmann- counting to 100

Counting with Jack Hartmann- counting in 10's

Counting with Jack Hartmann- counting in 5's

Counting with Jack Hartmann- counting in 2's

Counting with Jack Hartmann- counting to 1-30 and 30-1

Identifying numbers- What number am I

Identifying shapes- What shape am I

Representing numbers in different ways- Subitise

English

We are learning to write labels. Ask your child.... what is a label? A label is the name of a given item. Have a look at some of your favourite toys, can you write a label, short caption or sentence about them? We continue to use our phonetic knowledge of segmenting of cvc words. Before writing each word, encourage your child to segment each word by asking them, what sounds are in the word, for example ‘red.' Your child would then try to break the word into sounds (segmenting) by saying r-e-d. Please use the formation mat saved on your homepage to write those letters neatly in the provided boxes.

Here is an example of a label: doll

Here is an example of a short caption: The red doll.

Here is an example of a sentence: I have a red car and a doll with long hair.

Challenge- Can you have a go at writing a sentence or short caption about each of the toys? 

Remember...…. finger spaces, capital letters and a full stop. 

Storytime

Sit back and listen to the stories read by Miss Richards and Miss Silcott

Week beginning 9th November 2020

Hello Reception! This is Mrs Dutfield here! Owing to your time at home last week your teachers have been celebrating last weeks events including Diwali and Bonfire Night as well as thinking about Remembrance Day and Children in Need this week. Above this text is the overview of your tasks, it explains what you are learning and what resources you have for each lesson. Below are the resources you will need. Hope you enjoy!

 

Phonics 

In Reception your child will be learning the ‘h’ and ‘b’ sounds this week. Saved onto your homepage there are two lessons exploring these sounds. In the lessons the child will revisit the sounds that they know, they will revisit tricky words they know and will also learn a new tricky words for the week. You may want to ensure your child has a notepad ready as they may need to join in with some interactive activities during the session.

Additionally, Twinkl also provide a video live lesson for each of these sounds. You might therefore want to break your child’s learning up across the week. Young children learn better through short bursts of learning. Find the videos below, enjoy!

 

Letter ‘h’-  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1c0o_M7AOA

Letter ‘b’-  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwzqwxNzlQY

Both lessons have tasks to complete following the lesson. Task One is for children who are working with CVC words, however if your child is learning the sounds only, then Task two is more suitable for them. Task One focuses upon blending together the sounds your child knows for reading development. They blend the sounds together to make the word. Task Two focuses on sound recognition and the initial sounds of words, i.e. ‘h’ for h-a-t.

Task Two- Sam_s Window Smash Picture Match - Letters Phonics Task 2.pdf

 

English writing

In Reception this week you child is practicing segmenting CVC words. Your child’s task today is to write the CVC words such as sun, dog, mat in the given picture. Your child needs to find the pictures and write them as words. Before writing each word, encourage your child to segment each word by asking them, what sounds are in the word ‘mum’ for example? Your child would then try to break the word into sounds (segmenting) by saying m-u-m.

Your child can then use the formation mat saved on your homepage to write those letters neatly in the provided boxes. This website is a warm up game where your child can drag and drop letters to segment for a corresponding picture http://vtcpsa.hwb.wales.gov.uk/learn_y4/main.asp?lesson_path=year_4/word_machine_c-v-c/&lesson_file=lesson.swf&language=eng. Perhaps you can play this before your writing task. Section 2 is the section your child will need to play. As it is also Children in Need this week you may want to complete Pudsey’s segmenting challenge saved on your home page too! 

If your child isn’t quite ready for the use of a pencil or Phase 2 Phonics, to develop writing this week the children in Reception will also be mark making fireworks outdoors. Some firework mark making cards are saved on your homepage for your children to copy. They could use chalk or water and paintbrush on a dry day! You can also make marks in a tray of glitter, oats or paint. If your child is practicing using a pencil or pencil crayons.

Mathematics 

This term, the children are learning about counting sets and in school we often use something called a tens frame to do so. Today your child’s task is to begin to ‘count on’ from a given number. Your child can either complete this task practically on screen using this tool  http://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/tenFrame/index.html by writing their answers in a notepad or they can complete the printable task saved onto your homepage.  Please see the lesson below. It tells you how you can join in practically and gives resources to use too! Mrs Dutfield has added a lesson voice over for you to listen to. You can interact with Mrs Dutfield during the session.
