A message from Miss Hand...

Good morning Reception!
How are you all today? I hope you had a lovely day yesterday. It was so nice to get to speak to some of you and your parents yesterday. Mrs. Barnett and I miss you all, but we really enjoy seeing your photos and messages on the blog. If I couldn't get through to you, I will try again today. smiley

Thank you, as always, for all your hard work at home.

Please remember to complete the daily register - I would really love to see more of your names on the list -



Take care, Miss Hand and Mrs. Barnett smiley

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 4th, what is today? What is one more than 4... Perhaps you can talk about the date and weather at home. There is a youtube link of the days of the week song and the months of the year song below. smiley

Months of the Year 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.  


2. Simple sentence - I wonder if you can write something about the 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 today's word of the day and have a go at the activity if you are able to. 


4. J2blast spellings - Click here to take you to the website/app where you can practise the words.

Collective Worship

Please click on the document below to see Friday's Collective Worship.

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

The Servant King - Graham Kendrick

Literacy - The Three Little Pigs

Today we are continuing our new story of The Three Little Pigs. I have added the story powerpoint below and all of the other resources that you will need in one document.

Today I would like you to read the story and then have a go at some writing. There are two different templates.

1. Fill in the missing words in the speech bubbles. -  use the pictures and the story word mat to help you.

2. You might like to have a go at writing a sentence or two about the story or some sounds/words/simple sentences about some of the pictures. Use the word mat to help you with tricky words. You also have a sound mat and a high frequency word table to help 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.
