Reception English Learning - The Amazing Adventures of Max
Monday 1st June – Pages: 1-5 – Read the story and discuss the questions in your learning pack. Encourage your child to recall details from the story and to think about any words that they might not have understood.
Tuesday 2nd June – Pages: 6-8 – Look at the photos and put them in order to show where Max went during the middle of the story. Draw some pictures to show what happened in the beginning and the end of the story then have a go at acting out the story.
Wednesday 3rd June – Page:9 – Telling and inventing stories. Look at the plan of my story about a dog called Rosie and the adventure that she goes on. Have a go at making up your own story using my plan to help. Draw pictures of what happens and then have a go at telling the story aloud using the sentence starters: Early one morning, First we, After that, Suddenly, Luckily, They lived happily ever after.
Thursday 4th June – Page: 10 – Warming up the words. Read each of the words and discuss what they mean with your child. Model how to write each word and then have your child copy the word and draw a picture to match the word i.e. harness – draw a picture of a dog with a lead around their body.
Friday 5th June – Page: 11-12 – Where’s Max and Where’s Snowy. Have a go at matching the words ‘down’, ‘into’ and ‘over’ to a picture and then create a sentence for each i.e. the boy is moving down the slide. Then practice using positional language to describe where Snowy is in the pictures. If you would like a challenge then have a go at writing a sentence to match each picture i.e. Snowy is on the chair, Snowy is beside the chair.
Fine Motor Skills Activities
Fine motor skills can include small movements such as holding a pencil, scissor skills, manipulating play dough and also getting dressed with buttons and zippers. Below are a few different activities that you can do with your child to help develop their fine motor skills which will in turn help them with their writing later on.
1. Pegs - have your child help peg items onto a washing line. Have them race you to see who can peg up the most items onto the line.
2. Here is a very simple play dough recipe -
3. Threading - have a go at threading a piece of string through pasta shapes or if you have any beads they can be threaded onto a piece of string. If you have a colander then this can be used to poke string or sticks through the holes.
4. Use a hole punch to create patterns in a piece of paper. Use scissors to cut shapes from a piece of paper and create a picture such as a house or a rocket.

Week 1 – 01.06.20
This week we will be watching videos released last week but as it was over half term I have shifted the session to this week.
As this week the children are not focusing on specific phonemes I have included phonics activities that will support your child to revisit previously learnt phonemes. After watching the video, there will be a phonics worksheet to complete that will help your child to practice applying their phonics knowledge.
