Reception - Emperor Penguin 

 Welcome to Emperor Penguin class!

Our class name this year is based on an animal native to Antarctica - the Emperor Penguin! Emperor Penguins are the tallest and heaviest of all living penguin species. Emperor Penguins are also the only penguins to breed in the harsh Antarctic winter. They have a double layer of feathers and lots of fat to keep them warm. After laying her egg, female Emperor Penguins go to sea to find food. The male Emperor Penguins sit the egg on their feet and huddle together to keep each other and their eggs warm. Emperor Penguins like to eat squid, fish and krill. Unfortunately, scientists are worried about the survival of the Emperor Penguin because their habitat and food supply are under threat from climate change.

RED TED

Read Every Day, Talk Every Day

RED TED is an acronym for children Reading Every Day with their parent or carer and then Talking Every Day about what they have read.

 

We strongly encourage you to continue RED TED as part of your home learning. Keep track of how many books you read with tally marks or by making your own chart. If you have your own printer you can download and print this chart (RED TED Chart).

 

Celebrate reaching reading milestones by sharing a picture of your chart with your teacher on Evidence Me. Please refer to the Reading section below for a list of websites offering a range of online books and read alouds.

Daily Phonics

The Department for Education have written and recorded online lessons presented by phonics experts. These are  designed to cover new phonics teaching that children would have received over the summer term had they been in school. 

Three sets of lessons will be available. One set for Reception and one for Year 1 , based on where children are expected to be in their learning in the summer term. A third set of lessons focuses on extra blending practice which is an area that some children find the most challenging.

Please click on the picture to access these daily lessons on YouTube.
