Monster Mash

 

Lesson 1 - Listen and enjoy There’s a Monster in Your Book by
Tom Fletcher:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHx_kn6MG7k

Encourage your child to join in with blowing and making the loud noise to get the monster out of the book. Discuss how they would feel if there was a monster in one of their books. How would you try and get it out? How would you feel? How do you think the monster felt when you were trying to tickle him or shake him out? Once the monster was out of the book, why do you think we needed to get him back into the book? How do you think he felt when he was
allowed back into the book at the end? What do you think he might say at this point? If your child is able to, write a sentence or two to show what the monster might say.

 

Lesson 2 -   Listen to Bedtime for Monsters by Ed Vere: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KNuGGZAc-DA
Allow time to talk about and respond to the question asked in the book: Do you wonder if somewhere, not too far away, there might be MONSTERS? Talk about
the different types of monsters. Ask what could you do if you were scared of the monster? Make a sign to keep the monster out or, with adult help, construct and label a monster trap. Look at the pictures of the monster and describe him orally. With an adult, you
could write a poem, e.g. Two horned, trumpet eared, cave dweller, bike rider etc.

 

Lesson 3 - Choose a monster puppet to make from one of these clips. Eight Fun To Make
Monster Themed Crafts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLYrLyLdQvg or
Halloween Craft Idea: How to Make a Paper Monster Puppet:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-foaCuAxsoU
Watch the clip, pausing to discuss what you will need to do in order to make the
monster. Try to use words such as: first, next, then, finally and bossy verbs such as:
cut, stick, draw, put etc. If you have the resources, make your own monster. Once
completed, tell another family member how you made it. Can they follow your
instructions and make their own? Can you read a story to your monster?

 

Lesson 4 -Watch Monsters University Trailer:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlM81qGgo20
Start by looking at all of the different types of monsters. Do you know any of their names? Repeat, this time pausing to discuss the ones they spot. What do they look like? E.g.
Mike Wazowski is lime green and round (or shaped like a sphere). He has one big eye in the middle of his head. He has two small horns on the top of his head with thin arms.
Find your favourite monster from the list on this website:
https://disney.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Monsters,_Inc._characters and with an adult, talk about its description. How many eyes has it got? What shape is its head/body?
Can you spot how many arms and legs it has? How is it different from the other monsters? Draw your favourite monster and label it with words or phrases that describe it.
Remember to use your phonics to help you.

 

Lesson 5 - Design and create your own special monster. This could be using junk modelling or a drawing/painting. Talk about: What shape will its head and body be? How many legs/arms will it have? Will it be spotty or stripy? Will it have multiple eyes? Will it have horns? Will it have claws? Using your own monster that you have created, make your own monster fact file for someone to read. This could include: What he/she looks like. What they eat. What it does. How it behaves, etc. Remember to use your phonics to help you spell the words.

 

 

EXTRA - Please revisit and look at the high frequency word list and Tricky words list. The link is found below this timetable. Please practice reading these and spelling them.

 ● Create a Collage- ​Ask your child to draw out a number of fruits or vegetables, large enough to fill a piece of A4 paper. Provide them with a selection of colourful packaging. Can they carefully cut out the colourful pieces and stick them onto their picture to create their very own collage or colour in the fruit if you don’t have any colourful packaging or magazines.

 ● Shopkeeper Fun-​ Using toy food or old packaging, set up a food shop for your child to act out being the shopkeeper and customer. You could introduce coins to support their developing knowledge of money. Give them a notepad to use as a shopping list to encourage in the moment writing. This is a great opportunity to practise your child’s speaking and listening skills too.

My name is Miss. Ostranica and I am very excited to be teaching Reception 1 this year. 

We have been settling in to reception well, learning school routines and have had lots of chances to explore the continuous provision set up the class so far.

 

in reception this year we have a main focus of reading. To ensure that all children leave reception being able to read it is important to share a love of reading at school but at home also. We expect children toread at home everyday to ensure that they are given the best start to their school life.
