Monday 8th February Home Learning

Date: 5th Feb 2021 @ 3:17pm

Good morning,

Today in Reception we are thinking about Chinese New Year. On our 3pm Zoom Call, we will be learning about Chinese New Year and looking at some special dancing. 

Here are your home learning activities for today:

1. Can you use the template to make a paper lantern? Use things at home to decorate your lantern.

2. Maths - This week we are thinking about capacity. Can you find a spoon, a cup and a jug at your house? Which one can hold the most water? Which one can hold the least? Using the jug can you make it empty, nearly empty, half full, nearly full and full? Use the flashcards to help you.

3. P.E. - This week's P.E. lesson from Coach Jack is on Tapestry. Have a go at joining in with his activities at home!

Here are some other P.E. links that you can use too:
