Good morning Reception,
I have found a really nice positive song about self-belief that has dance moves to get some exercise in too. Alternatively, you can just have a dance to your favourite song that makes you happy, or maybe both!

We are all missing our friends and normal routines so I wanted to share an activity to help us all remember our friends and the good things about them. Today, I would like you to draw a picture of your best friend(s). Can you write why they are such a good friend to you? What do you like about them?
Next, draw yourself. What makes you a great friend? Can you write down three things that make you a great friend?
Finally, when you see them next what are you going to do together?
You have been working on halving this week but today we are going to work on doubling.
Double means twice as many. Both numbers need to be the same and then we add them together.
Sit opposite somebody at home, this could be a sibling or parent. One person will hold up some fingers, any amount from one to five. Now the other person needs to hold up the same amount. If I hold up 2 fingers, you hold up 2 fingers as well. You can then find the double by counting the total. Remember to use the language “Double 2 is 4.” Take it in turns to go first.
Literacy: My news
At school, many of you enjoyed writing about what you have been up to. This is something we did once a week. Can you write about your news since being at home? This could be your favourite meal, which toys you have been playing with or an activity you have enjoyed from the blog. Try to aim for three sentences remembering your capital letters, full stops and spaces between your words.
Phonics: Tricky word BINGO!
I know this was a Friday favourite at school and something many of you enjoyed. Here is a video for you to play along with. Please pause the video if you need more time as it is difficult to judge how long to wait when recording.
Enjoy the sunshine and happy learning,
Miss Goodswen and Mrs Hughes
