Today we would like your child to start thinking about the transition of moving on from Reception to Year 1. Encourage them to think about the things they can do now that they weren’t able to do at the beginning of the academic year. Examples of these could include reading, writing, problem solving with numbers and creating models using different materials. Using the template below, ask your child to complete the sentences on each of the butterfly’s wings.

Using their ‘Butterfly Transition Template’ from yesterday, today we would like your child to write a letter introducing themselves to their new teacher. If you have not yet received your child’s end of year report, they can just address the letter ‘To my new teacher’. Ask them to think of the information they would like to share with their new teacher, for example their age, something they are good at, their favourite subject at school and what they are looking forward to learning in Year 1.
Challenge: Encourage your child to think of a question they would like to ask their new teacher. Remember to put a question mark (?) at the end the question.

Before completing this task, please share the ‘All About Summer’ PowerPoint with your child under the Wider Curriculum page. After completing their nature walk, we would like your child to use their senses to complete the template below. They can draw a picture of the signs of summer they have observed and then write a short caption in each of the boxes.
Challenge: Encourage your child to use some interesting adjectives to describe what they have felt, heard, smelt and seen. They can use the summer adjective word cards below to help them.

Please visit the Wider Curriculum page before starting today’s literacy task.
Today we would like your child to find out some facts about the country/ countries their family comes from. This might not necessarily be their parents, but their grandparents or great grandparents.
Next week we will continue our ‘International Celebration’ with some more fun activities.
