Reception Home Learing 30.4.20

Reception Class Thursday 30th April

To the Parents and children of Reception Class.

I just want to tell you something as I'm sat here doing my online blog- Virtual teaching will never replace the love, the laughs, the learning, the smiles on the children's faces, the aha moments (which are many),that happen in the classroom every single day. This quarantine isn't a break from teaching, its heartbreak.

Anyway, let's get back to some serious learning!


All groups recap the new sounds/words we have learnt this week. But don't forget to add some recap sounds/words. Please feel free to create lotto/bingo games. Something that might be fun as I think it's going to rain today. Perhaps hide some words and they have to find them and match them to a lotto board. But remember to say the word they have found.

On your daily walk or even out in the garden, see if you can find some wiggly worms, sparkly spider webs, slimy snails, colourful ladybirds etc. Please can you encourage your child to extend their vocabulary to describe what they are doing and where they might be going? Perhaps if you have a magnifying glass, you can look closely at what you find? Can you find snails with different patterned shells? Can you draw some of the things you have found and write the initial sound for each minibeast?


Number bonds

Continue to count to 30 and beyond, and Keep doubles on the boil up to 10.

All Children-Make some F/C with number bonds to 6 on. For eg. 3+3=6 etc. Then encourage your child to find objects to match the sum.

Most Children-As above but use number bonds to 10.

Challenge- This time if you make the sums using objects, but your child makes the corresponding sum.


I saw this yesterday and thought it was a lovely idea. You can use twigs or just paint to make a rainbow. (Painted twigs look lovely). Then at the bottom write your child's name with Lockdown 2020. Then frame it as a keepsake. If you use twigs, you will have to get a frame with some depth to it. I'm sure you know what I mean. I am definitely going to do this. 



I am strong in body, heart and mind- Jump your feet apart.

I support myself-Turn your left foot in and your right foot forward.

I am ready to act- Raise your arms.

I am trustworthy- Turn your head to the right and bend your right knee.

How can you support yourself in feeling strong in body, heart and mind?


How is the singing going? (Somewhere over the Rainbow).

Weekly Welsh

Beth wyt ti'n hoffi (What do you like?).

Answer- Rwy'n hoffi (I like…). Or

Dw i ddim yn hoffi (I don't like).

Use words-





You can also use the welsh phrases but use English words that you like or dislike. For eg. Rwy'n hoffi…..sprouts.

My email address is- if you need to contact me.

Thank you and keep yourselves safe.

 "Sometimes," said the horse.

"Sometimes what?" asked the boy.

"Sometimes just getting up and carrying on is brave and magnificent."
