    Good morning Reception!

    Start your learning off with another yoga session.  This time it is Fernando the Silver Fox.

    Mrs Cornell will be recapping i, n, m and d.

    Learn all about our new sound of the day with Mrs Pearson.

    Mrs Rawlings will continue to find out more about Magic Number 7  

    Have a go at singing the  Seven Days of the Week Song. Look at the attachment at the bottom of this page for the days of the week worksheet.  There is also a  number 7 number search. You will need to scroll down to the number 7 page. However you could print of all the  number searches and find the numbers we have looked at so far.  

    Mrs Hardwick is going to help you make a Factfile with the help of Espresso.  Don't forget to log in using student27621 and password coding.  This activity will take quite a long time and we expect you to carry it over to the next day.  Don't worry and don't forget to take a break.  Why not have a look at BBC Go Jetters for more information about your chosen country.

    Make sure you go back to Monday's learning page to practise reading one of our stories.  

    Have you ever helped your adult wash up?  Why not have a go.  What do the bubbles feel like?  Why do you think we add bubbles to the water?  How do you get rid of the food off the pots?  What else do you need to help you clean the pots?  Could you dry the pots up or put them away in the correct places.  Try and make sure the knives forks and spoons are in the correct places.  Do you wash up the same pots after each meal?

    Why not try helping your adult load and unload the dishwasher if you have one?  Where do the glasses or bowls go?  Why do we put different things in different places?  What happens for the pots to go in dirty and come out clean?  Can you find out?

    Get yourself a drink and a snack and sit on the sofa and listen to Mrs Rawlings read Little Teddy Left Behind.
