Reception Home Learning 7.5.20

Reception Class Thursday 7th May

To the Parents and children of Reception Class.

"You are doing much better than you think"

I just wanted to share this- History will show you for your courage, your children will remember this period as a time of knowing they were safe and loved and teachers everywhere are deeply grateful that you are there for your children when we should but can't be.

In short: you are awesome! And so are your children. XXX


In Preparation for VD Day

Try and have a break on FRIDAY if you can. Dress up, eat, drink, sing, dance and have lots of fun. Hopefully the weather will be sunny and we can all get outside. If you have time, I would love to see some pics!


Mrs Garbett's Group.

We have now completed all of speed set 2 sounds. However it is too soon to progress to speed set 3. So we will repeat speed set 2 with some additional writing.

Recap previous sounds/words

Sound- igh (fly high).

Words- night, sight, might and light.

Sentence- Can you see stars in the dark? (Make the sentence easier if required). Remember your child has done the ar sound.

Words to read- big, yes, then and not.

Mrs Evans group.

Recap previous sounds.

New sound- air (that's not fair)

Words- hair, stair, chair and lair.

Sentence- My cat has red hair?

Mrs Miles group.

Recap previous words.

Word time 6 is quite tricky as some words have more than 3 letters.

Recap words- thin, zap, chop, quit, fix, bang, thick and zip. Remember to identify special friends first before reading the word.

Read the words above and then write them down.

Don't forget the- high frequency words. Perhaps learn 3 or 4 a week and just keep recapping.

I  go  come  went  a  was  look  there  are  we  and  me  like  going  she  they  my  see  on  away  this  play  no  yes  for  can he  am  all  you  said  to  day  there



All Children- Make cookies ready for your picnic on Friday. Talk about the shape of your cookies. Does it have any corners? Can you decorate them in red, white and blue?

Most Children- Draw different shapes- circles, squares, rectangles, triangles, hexagons and pentagons. Cut them out and decorate in red, white and blue. Attach them with string or wool and hang in your garden

Challenge- Make a wall from a cardboard box. Put several triangles, rectangles, squares and circles in the box. Use a puppet to slide them slowly up 1 at a time. Your child then guesses what shape it might be, and also discuss what it can't be.


Shopping list

Can you create a list of foods you would like to eat at your garden party? Can you create a healthy list and a treat list? Draw pictures and try to write what you have drawn. What is your favourite sandwich? What is your favourite drink?


Just a few ideas to be creative for VE Day

Perhaps you could draw an outline of a mug for your child to decorate. Please send me your designs. I would love to see them. It's completely up to you what you create.

Paint some jam jars and put wild flowers in.

Decorate a pot and put your favourite plant in- perhaps some sunflowers.





Elephants can shower themselves with their own trunks. Choose something to shower yourself with- sparkles, love, laughter, strength.

Stand with your feet wide apart.

Link your hands and dangle your arms in front of you like an elephant trunk.

Inhale through your nose as you raise your arms high above your head and lean back.

Exhale through your mouth as you swing your arms down through your legs.

Repeat for three rounds. On the next round, stay up, arch back and shower yourself!

Weekly Welsh

Following on from last week-Think about the foods you would like to eat to celebrate VE Day.

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

Answer dw i'n hoffi……… (I like….)

Make a list of the foods. Draw them and write the names of food. Try to use initial sounds or part of the word. 

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

Thank you and keep yourselves safe.
