A message from Miss Hand...

Hi Reception, 

How are you all today? I hope you all had a good Thursday. Sadly we didn't have any snow yesterday. Maybe we'll have some another day - I'll keep checking the weather forecast. smiley
There are now 12 children going on J2blast which is fantastic! It's great to see so many of you practising your spellings. smiley Well done as always for all your hard work at home and on the blog. Mrs. Barnett and I think you're all superstars! Please continue to post on the blog if you are able to. I am loving seeing your photos/videos and messages! If you need any help with how to post on the blog, please click on this link -

Morning routine

We always start our morning by talking about the date and weather. We sing the days of the week song and we discuss the date - what day was it yesterday, what day is it today...tomorrow? If yesterday was the 14th, what is today? What is one more than 14... Perhaps you can talk about the date and weather at home. There is a youtube link of the days of the week song below.

Days of the Week song

Basic skills

1. High frequency words - I wonder if you can practise reading/writing some of the high frequency words. I've put the Reception high frequency words and the other sets if needed (bands 1-30) in one document below. There are also flashcards for the Reception high frequency words. Have a go at reading the bands and see which band you're working within. smiley 


2. Have a look at the 'I can see document' below. Take a look at Day 5

I wonder if you can write something about this picture? I wonder if you can think of your own sentence or perhaps you could write another ‘I can see’ sentence. I can see... It is up to you! If this is a bit tricky, you could have a go at writing some sounds/words.


3. Word of the day - Take a look at the document of slides below. Take a look at Day 5 and complete the activity!

Collective Worship

Please click on the document below to see this week's Collective Worship. Please look at Friday -

1.) Daily devotion. 2.) Hymn practice (youtube link below).

I'm gonna trust in God


Today we are continuing our new story of The Gingerbread Man. I have added the story powerpoint below.

Today I would like you to read the story and then have a go at some writing. There are two different templates. You could either have a go at writing a sentence or two about the story - use the word mat to help you with tricky words.

Or you might like to write some sounds/words/simple sentences about some of the pictures. It is up to you!

Think about what you'd like to write - what sounds can you hear in the word? Can you write them down? 

If you want to write a sentence, think about what you would like to write. How many words are in your sentence? Count them using your fingers...What's your first word? Have a go at writing it down. Remember to start with a capital letter, remember finger spaces between each word and a full stop at the end of your sentence. smiley

 Snack time and this week's Nursery rhyme...
