Today we are going to focus on another rhyme. As Miss Inman stated last week rhyme is really important to your child’s overall  language development. This week’s rhyme is “Mary had a little lamb”

Click on the link above and read the rhyme. Ask some key questions. What was a fleece and where was it on the lambs body? What else could it be as white as? Why couldn’t the lamb go to school? Why did the lamb wait for Mary all day?

Practise the rhyme and it would be lovely to see you performing it for us to watch

Book Week Teaching Resources, Worksheets & Activities | Teach Starter

A few weeks ago the children were asked to complete some home learning about a particular interest which was very successful and the children seemed to enjoy it.

This week is book week so we are asking you to choose your favourite story and do a piece of project learning about it. Have a chat with your child about their favourite book and why they like it. Is it funny? Do they like the characters in the story?

Have a look at the world book day website. There are lots of things to explore on here.

Have fun



Number TimePhonicsProject – Favourite story projectLive Storytime
For our number work today I would like us to focus on different positions.

I bet Mary loved snuggling up with her lamb on her knee and having him next to her.

Start by singing the bean bag song. You could choose your favourite teddy to put in the different positions in the song. Sing to the tune of “If your happy and you know it”.

Put Your Beanbag Song

After singing the song play the game. Look at the picture of a farmyard and answer the position questions.

You have a bit of a challenge for phonics today. You are going to practice reading using all the skills that you have built up.

Say the word and find the matching picture. You can print these off or just match using your finger. I Spy and Read Activity – Phase 2 Set 1

How are you getting on with your favourite story challenge? Some of the children yesterday had put some of their ideas on dojo. I am very excited to see what story you have chosen. It’s very difficult to choose mine as I have so many.

One of them is “peace at last”. Poor Mr Bear I felt so sorry for him. All he wanted was a good night’s sleep.

Mary had a little lamb

Click on the link to take you to the song “Mary had a little lamb”. Join in with the singing and then try to make some actions to go with the rhyme. Let’s see who can come up with the most original actions. Maybe you could post on dojo.

As a follow on I thought it would be good fun to re-write the rhyme with our own name in it and your pet if you have one or a pet that you would like to have.

Here is my rhyme

Mrs Ross had a little cat, little cat, little cat

Mrs Ross had a little cat. It’s fur was soft and warm.

See what you can come up with and maybe video your version for us to watch.

For phonics today I thought that we could do some rhyme work. Find the odd one out in the row of pictures.

As an extra challenge have a little go at writing the words for each picture

It is time to continue with your project learning. There has been some lovely work put on dojo so I can see that some of you are having a go at producing drawings and you have talked to your grown up about why it is your favourite story.

Maybe you could draw a picture of something from the beginning, middle and end of the story that you have chosen.

I have seen some lovely work on dojo and I know that some of you are working really hard.

Don’t forget to put your work on dojo for us to see.



 We are very excited to be welcoming back all our friends to Reception on Monday. However we all may be feeling a little differently about this. Please share this wordless book together and talk about what is happening and the different feelings of the main characters. When you have finished talking please draw a picture of all the things that you liked doing in Reception and  are looking forward to doing again. get your grown up to let us know how you are feeling. Are you excited or do you feel a little worried? Let us know about any changes there have been in your lives since we last saw you- have there been any particularly happy or sad events that we need to know about?Can you complete a back to school alphabet?

See if you can think of something we have or do in Reception for every letter of the alphabet?

You can draw your results or write them in a list.

I hope you have had a lot of fun with your self led learning this week. The Reception staff are looking to buy some more books for our reading area and would like your recommendations! Use this book review writing frame as a guide to what we want to know, you can either print it off or just record your thoughts and pictures ideas on a piece of plain paper.
