Reception Home Learning 1.6.20

Reception Class Monday 1st June

To the Parents and children of Reception Class.

Welcome back all. I hope you have all managed to have a little rest and recharge your batteries ready for another week of online learning.

 "What's your best discovery?" asked the mole.

"That I'm enough as I am" said the mole.

Next Monday (8th June), the school will be running a Virtual Lockdown Sports Day. Each class will decide on 1 activity which will depend on the most popular one chosen. Suggestions are- How long can you balance on 1 leg? How far can you walk with a book on your head? Strawberry and spoon race, throw a ball in a bucket etc. I will let you know ASAP which activity most of reception class voted for. The other classes will decide on an activity too, so that means there will be 7 activities in total to complete. Don't forget to take some photos and dress up in your PE kit! There will be 1 house point awarded for each activity.


If you have some bottle tops, please could you write a  b  c  d  e  f  A  B  C  D  E  F on each top, then have a go during the week to match the small case letter to the capital letter. Explain to your child that they have a capital letter at the beginning of their name and the first letter when we write a sentence. Can you think of anyone that has one of these letters at the beginning of their name?

Can you create a shop selling tins, pasta etc? Or a snack shop selling drinks, fruit etc. Then make some labels ranging from 1p to 20p. In a purse put some 1p coins and a few 10p coins. Swap over playing customer and shop keeper. If you have an older sibling, they could do this together. Set the shop up outside if you can.

All Children- Buy items using 1p coins up to about 6p.

Most Children- As above, using 1p coins up to 10p. Can you buy an item that costs 10p using 1 coin?

Challenge- What coins make 15p? You have a 10p coin so how many pennies do you need?


Topic- This will be covered over the week.


In preparation for Sports Day, can you create a fitness diary over the week? Encourage your family to join in too. In your book you can write- On Monday I like to run. On Tuesday I like to hop. On Wednesday I like to jump etc. Draw some pictures of what you like to do. What exercise are you looking forward to doing after Lockdown? Try to spell as many words as you can on your own.


Creative- We will do this over 2 days.

Everything starts with a dot. Wassily Kandinsky.

Can you find out where Kandinsky was born? What was his first job? Do you know what musical instrument he played? Kandinsky felt that he could express feelings and music through colours and shapes in his paintings. What colour do you think of when you are excited? Happy? Sad? Angry? What is your favourite colour? Why?

Can you think of 3 emotions as above and draw a picture in a particular colour to represent those emotions. E.g. A yellow, sunny, happy picture. A green picture of feeling calm and relaxed. Or you can just choose 3 colours, play some classical music and create an abstract picture with no particular theme.



All is well

Rest back and relax. Close your eyes and go inside. Breathe and know that all is well…repeat softly or silently to yourself. Lie still for 60 seconds.

May I be safe and loved.

May I be happy and healthy.

May I be kind and caring.

May I know that all is well.
