Reception

If you've done any work that you'd like to share with us, please e-mail it to admin@northwood.bexley.sch.uk 

Good morning,

 

Okay, we all know how important healthy eating and keeping fit is. So, I would like you to send in your very own fitness video. Once we have received them we can all try out each other's routine and keep fit together.

 

GET DANCING!!!!

 

Good morning my little munchkins,

 

What's going on? You've all stopped sending in any work!

Let's see who the first person to respond to this message is.

So, I would love to see some of your cursive writing. I have put an example of all of the letters below. We have practiced all of these in your handwriting books so you should be a whizz at them now. Don't forget, with most of the letters, we don't take our pencil off the page until the letter is complete.

 

Don't forget to send in your work. I love seeing what you have all been up to.

Happy Tuesday morning.

 

Your task for today is to list animals into categories, for example; pets, farm animals, woodland animals, sea creatures or wild animals. Can you think of any other categories? Do some of the animals fit into more than one category?

 

If you could have any pet, what pet would you have?

Can you guess mine?

 

 

Good evening all,

 

I hope you have been able to enjoy the lovely weather that we have had recently.

 

As you know, this week is half term. So, I am setting you a challenge that will last for the week. I want you to keep a diary of the things that you get up to this week.

 

Here is my account of today:

 

Monday

Woke up early and had porridge for breakfast.

Went for bike ride to Danson Park. 

Strolled around the English garden.

Had a lovely salad for lunch.

Spoke to my friends and family on the telephone.

Spent the rest  of my day in the garden.

 

I can't wait to read what you guys have been up to.

 

Good Morning,

 

Your task for this weekend is to send in two photos, one of you as a baby and the other a more recent photo. Then I would like you to make 2 lists. The first should be a list of all the things you could do as a baby (this won't be a very long list). The second list, yes you've guessed, a list of all the things you can do know (this will be a much longer list).

 

Have a lovely weekend.

Good evening,

 

I hope you all had an eventful weekend.

 

Firstly, I would like to say a big thank you to all of the children and parents who are visiting this page on a regular basis. It keeps us all connected and allows us to have some fun and enjoy still working as a team whilst apart.

I cannot wait until we are all back together again!

 

So, tomorrow (or today if you are reading this on Tuesday) is going to be talent Tuesday. I would love it if you could send in photos or videos of any talents that you have achieved in lockdown.

 

We have already seen some videos of children learning to ride bikes, baking cakes and whizzing around on their scooters - not all at the same time because that could be messy!!

 

I have managed to do lots of crocheting and knitting over the past few weeks, oh, and lots of housework, to keep myself occupied.

 

I cannot wait to see what you guys have been up to!

It's Friday so I am setting you all a challenge for the weekend.

 I want you to write the alphabet down the side of a piece of paper and then you are going to go on an alphabet hunt, around your house.

The challenge is to find objects that your friends may not write down.

I have made a start on my list:

A - armchair

B - bananas

C - camera

D - door handle

E - egg timer

 

I will post everybody's lists and then you can add up your score. If you find something that nobody else has written down, you can give yourself 1 point. Who will get the highest score?

Good morning my lovelies.

 

It’s Monday so let’s get measuring!

 

I want you to grab a couple of teaspoons and start measuring objects around your house.

 

I have measured a couple of things already. I am working on a puzzle at the moment and it is 6 teaspoons long. My radiator is 6 1/2 teaspoons long. The longest object I have measured is my sofa, that is 13 teaspoons long.

 

What will you measure? Don’t forget to send me your photos!

 

See you soon.

Picture 1 I can see some careful measuring.
Picture 2 Great recording of your hard work!

It's Friday!!!!

Okay guys, here's today's challenge:

 

I want you to gather objects, from around the house, that are made from different materials. Can you sort them into the correct groups?

 

I have sorted some school objects. Can you see which ones are made from wood, paper, fabric and plastic?

 

Don't forget, you can have a well deserved rest on Saturday and Sunday!!

 

Take care x

 

 

Shilah, you have found some interesting objects to sort and group.

Today I would like to see your mix-up Monday animals.

 

I want you to choose 5 animals. Using a different section of each animal, can you draw a completely different animal of your own?

 

My animal has: the head of a horse, the neck of a giraffe, the body of a zebra, the legs of a duck and the tail of a peacock.

 

What animals will you choose?

Hi guys,

I am back with a mid-week challenge.

I want you to grab 10 items. They don't have to be the same thing or the same size. Now I want you to separate them in to two groups. How many different ways can you make 10?

Here are a couple of examples to get you started:

10 + 0 = 10

0 + 10 = 10

Don't forget to send in your photos!!!

Good morning my little lovelies,

 

How did you get on with your information books?

 

Well, it's a new week so I have a new challenge.

I want you to grab a pencil and a piece of paper, walk around your house and draw or write down everything you can find that begins with the first letter of your name.

Who can beat my score?

I found: Many knitting needles, keys, a kite, 2 kettles, knives, a kitchen, ketchup, keyrings and a keyboard. 9 is not a great score but I am still looking.

I am sure that you guys will find way more than me but, who will find the most?

Once you have made your list, send it in to us!

Hi all,

I hope you have all managed to keep yourselves busy in these testing times.

I have found a fantastic website for you guys to explore. They have printable worksheets and lots of activities featuring native British wildlife.

Why not make an information booklet about one of the animals and maybe draw a map of your very own wildlife park. What would you call your wildlife park? What animals would you have? What facilities would your animals need? What would they eat? Where would they sleep? Don't forget to add eating facilities, toilets and a gift shop for your visitors!

Missing you all.

Hello Class R,

We are coming to the end of our second week of being at home. I do hope you have not driven your parents too mad!?

It's nice to see so many of you using Reading Eggs and Mathletics. Keep up the good work!

Don't forget our Friday afternoon dance sessions. I want to hear that you have all been dancing to Chu Chu ua.

I am really missing you all and hope to see you soon.

Take care, stay safe and keep washing your hands!

 

Hello to the children and parents of Class R!  We will be busy over the coming year adding pictures of all the learning and exciting things we have been up to. We hope you enjoy looking at all our activities. Thank you for your support.  Mrs Kiddell & Team

On Thursday 5th March we celebrated 'World Book Day'.  This year the children were asked to design a hat/headpiece that represented a story, rather than wear a whole costume, and they came up with some great designs!  We has a special assembly, where the hats were paraded, and Mrs McNulty and Mrs Drohan chose a boy and girl winner from each class.  We then went back to our classroom where we continued with activities linked to reading including writing about our favourite characters, writing an alternative version of the 'Gingerbread Man' story and reading out loud to each other. A big thank you goes out to all the parents/carers for their support in creating the hats, and we hope you enjoy looking through the photographs below.  

We have been busy working on traditional tales this first half of the spring term.

Here are some examples of the work we have been doing.

Can you spot the stories?

We have also been having lots of fun outside!

4/9/19

The children of Class R will be very busy over the next few weeks settling into school and exploring their classroom and it's resources. They will be taking part in lots of child initiated play and learning, which will enable us to find out what they can already do and what their next steps are.  The children will be getting used to working in large and small groups, as well as one-one with an adult, and we look forward to supporting the next steps in their learning. We are exploring the theme of 'Ourselves' and will be talking about our bodies, our families and our homes, and discovering and celebrating how different and unique we all are! Then we will be exploring how to keep ourselves healthy.  Soon we will be adding photographs of our activities for you to enjoy.  Thank you for your support.  Mrs Kiddell & Team
