Hi lovely Reception children,

A huge thank you and congratulations to those of you who have been busy with the activities I have set for you – you are all DONNINGTON  SUPERSTARS!

It has been such a joy looking at your amazing pictures and reading all the lovely messages written in your Home Diaries.

This week I would like you to meet four lovely teachers from Oak National Academy online:

Ms Bethan Hughes, who loves running and reading.

Ms Jane Garrard, who has a little puppy called Milo.

Ms Zara Simpson, who likes playing board games.

Ms Bella Sidenius, whose passion is to get creative with things found in nature.

Each of them has prepared interesting sessions that I am going to share with you.

Time to announce our story of the week:  ‘The Three Little Pigs’.

Ms Hughes and her Teddy Bear called Toffy are going to read it for you and help you write about it. Please go to:

The pigs in the story built their houses from different materials, didn’t they? Here you will find an interesting lesson about different kinds of materials:

​As always – use any props you can find at home and act out the story with your family. Take a picture or two and email them to me to show off. Teach everybody at home ‘The Three Little Pigs’ song and sing it together ittogether.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WR4L_t6IAfc

There are Read, Write Inc phonics lessons available on YouTube every day; each lesson is available for 24 hours https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/find-out-more/parents/​​​

Ms Simpson is asking you to use your careful counting finger and careful counting head to solve some maths problems here:

Here is some art with Ms Sidenius and her toy called Mrs Bunny:

If you ever feel a little bit bored this week, please go to https://www.thenational.academy/reception/foundation/bored-reception-wk1-1/

and listen to the ‘Whatever Next’ story read to you by Ms Garrard.

Don’t forget to exercise every day. Use all the links about it from my previous messages, please.  Is it a pinkie promise?  Great!  I can’t wait for us to run our Daily Mile with a Smile together again!!!

Why don’t you try Reem’s experiment with an egg: Place a raw egg in white vinegar for 2 days. Take it out and peel the shell off. Check how bouncy it is then! Have fun!

Have you got any interesting experiments to share with us? Let me know and I will post it here next week!

Keep sending me the photos of your great learning to: reception@donnington.brent.sch.uk

I can’t wait to see what you are up to every week!

Let’s be kind and stay safe,

Love from

Mrs Frenkler
