Reception Home Learning 9.6.20

Reception Class Tuesday 9th June

To the Parents and children of Reception Class.

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."

Martin Luther King Jr.


This activity to complete over the week.

If you have some bottle tops[DM1] [DM2] [DM3] [DM4] , 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?

Word time 7

We have now completed word time 7 which I know is quite tricky. Always try to recap some of these words. We will now concentrate on these sounds-

sh   th  ch  qu   ng  nk

So today our new sound is- sh (shhhh says the horse).

Read and write these sounds- ship  shop  fish  shed

Words to learn for the week- a  bed  mat  wet  cat  bath  on  it  the

Sentence- A wet cat on the mat. (If this is too challenging for your child perhaps you could write –A wet cat and then your child finishes the sentence).

(Please remember a capital letter at the beginning, tall, short letters, and a full stop at the end).

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


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

Children need to know that numbers 10-20 are made up of 10 and some more. This helps children to see how numbers are made up. So teen numbers comprise of one ten and some ones. Children can find this concept more difficult than other 2 digit numbers, e.g. 25 is made from 20 and 5.

All Children- Count up to 30 and beyond if you can. Emphasise the teen when counting teen numbers and emphasise the ty in 20, 30, 40 etc. Children tend to confuse the sound as it sounds similar.


Most Children- Use lego, bricks or something similar and make a tower of 10. Then make 11 but keep your tower of 10 and place 1 lego piece next to the tower of 10. Say 10 +1= 11. Repeat with other teen numbers.

 Challenge- As above, but record your sums. Also when you check your towers, if you have made 15, look at your tower of 10 and say 10 and then add 5, equals 15. Rather than counting each piece of 10. So you are actually counting on from 10. I hope you can understand my explanation.


Topic- Over the week.

On your daily exercise can you take some paper 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 lengthen my spine and connect with the floor- Sit cross legged on the floor.

I twist my legs- Bend your left leg over your right leg.

I reach and twist- Hook right elbow outside left knee, left hand on floor behind you.

I am a perfect pretzel- Clasp your hands behind your back.

When you twist your spine, you squeeze out all kinds of tensions. What else can you release?

Notice how you feel after twisting. Are you more relaxed, open and alert?

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 eg. Monday Mae'n wyntog and draw a picture. Next week we will learn the days of the week in Welsh.

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
