Blythe - Monday

Welcome Blythe Class!

I hope you had a lovely weekend! 

This half term our topic is 'Under the Sea!' We will be reading some great stories and learning some facts about creatures that live under the sea.


Make sure you have a look at our Weekly Update to see what your Reception friends got up to before the half-term break! You can find the Weekly Update and WOW Board here



This week we are reading 'Fidgety Fish'

Have you read this story before? What do you think might happen in the story? What problem might Fidgety Fish come across? Why do you think he is called fidgety? 

Now listen to the story

Fidgety Fish


What did you like about the story? Why was that your favourite part? How did Fidgety Fish escape? Why did he fall asleep straight away?

Well done everyone, you have now learned all of the sounds in set 1 and 2. You will now review and consolidate all the sounds!


Today I need you to be a special investigator! I have some secret words you need to solve. Look at the pictures below and write the first sound of each picture. Then put the sounds together and read what the secret word is. The first one has been done for you.



Miss Fernando's group

We have now learned all of the sounds for Reception. We will now review and consolidate all the sounds. Well done!

Today we are going to practise sounding out and spelling words with the sound 'ow'.

Spelling 'ow'

This week we are going to learn how to read the time. Watch the video below to get us started!

Telling the Time

I hope you enjoyed the song. Now we are going to watch another video to help us learn more about time. 


Now it's your turn to make your own clock. Get a paper plate or use an A4 piece of paper and cut out a circle. Write the numbers 1-12 on your clock. Use lollipop sticks/ pipe cleaners/ paper to make the long and short hands of the clock. Keep this for Wednesday's learning of time.


Special Task

Before we return back to school, let's learn about germs and how to practise good hygiene. Watch the video below and listen to the story.


Germs and Good Hygiene


I look forward to seeing your learning! 

Have fun!
