Reception Home Learning 8.6.20

Reception Class Monday 8th June

To the Parents and children of Reception Class. Welcome to another week of online learning. I hope you are all safe and well and we will get through this together.

"I've learned that people will forget what you said.

People will forget what you did.

But people will never forget how you made them feel."


This activity to complete over the week.

If you have some bottle tops, please could you write g  h  i  j  k  l  f  G  H  I  J  K  L 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 when we write a sentence. Can you think of anyone that has one of these letters at the beginning of their name?

Keep these activities on the boil-

Counting to 20 and beyond

Forming numbers correctly

Identify numbers 10-20

Doubles to 10

Addition to 10

Days of the week

Subtraction to 10

Teen numbers

Count from 10-20 pointing to each teen number. If you have some F/C encourage your child to order these numbers correctly. 

All Children- Practise writing numbers 10-20 correctly. Children do sometimes find it a challenge to write teen numbers correctly. They tend to write 21 but mean 12. Place numbers 10-20 in a shuffled pile. Then with you child, take 1 card and place in the right order. Take 1 away, what number is missing? 

Most Children- Can you complete some addition sums- 10+1=  11+1=  etc. up to 20

You can use resources to complete these or try to add on from 10. So keep 10 in your head and add 1.

Challenge- Write some teen numbers down on paper, chalk outside etc. Then using playdough- If number 13, place 10 playdough balls on 1 and 3 balls on 3. Can you count all the playdough balls? Does it match the number? If you don't have playdough, use cut out pieces of paper, stones, counters etc.

Topic- Over the week.

On your daily exercise, can you take some paper and pencils and record some of the wild flowers that are appearing everywhere. I'm sure you even have some in your garden. There are ones that are easily identified such as dandelions and daisies. Can you sketch them and write the initial sound by the side? Perhaps you can help your child to find out their correct names? Hopefully by the end of the week you can name 10 wild flowers. Take some close up photos if you can, it will make a lovely display. 

Creative- We will do this over 2 days, Monday and Tuesday

Let's paint like Kandinsky!!

Get a piece of paper and paint a colour wash and leave to dry. You can do this by choosing a colour, just a little amount of paint and adding water. Don't soak the paper as it will rip. It's just so you have a coloured background to work on.  Let it dry. Then encourage your child to create Kandinsky's favourite shapes. Can you remember what they were? Create these shapes all over the dried paper in various sizes. Try not to leave many gaps. Then paint the shapes in various colours. When dry, use a thin black felt pen to go over the outline of each shape. You then have a stunning painting in the style of Kandinsky.



I am grounded- Sit on your shins, spine straight.

I am silent- Fold forward over your thighs.

I am still- tack your fists beneath your forehead.

I am a rock- Place your forehead on the ground, rest hands by feet.

Connect with the earth and imagine being a rock, stone or crystal. What texture, size and shape are you? How old? How heavy?

Let go, and rest and just be where you are. Feel the magic of silence, the strength of stillness.

Weekly Welsh- Continue with the weather. But can you keep a diary of the weather in welsh. Draw a picture to accompany you weather pattern. For e.g. Monday Mae'n wyntog and draw a picture. Next week we will do days of the week.

Sut mae'n tywydd? How is the weather?

Respond by saying- Mae'n bwrw glaw. It's raining.

Mae'n heulog- sunny

Mae'n cymylog- cloudy

Mae'n braf- fine

Mae'n Stormus- stormy

Mae'n oer- cold

Mae'n wyntog- windy
