A message from Miss Hand...

Good morning Reception!
How are you all today? I hope you all had a fantastic World Book Day yesterday and that you enjoyed The Masked Reader competition. smiley I wonder if you guessed which memoji was me...and which book I was reading...yes The answers will be revealed once we are all back at school! laugh
I hope you have a really lovely last day of home learning and a brilliant weekend. Well done once again for all your hard work during the lockdown. Mrs. Barnett and I can't wait to see you all on Monday morning. It's so very exciting!

Have a good rest before then. Take care, Miss Hand and Mrs. Barnett smiley

Star of the week


Hi Reception! Please click on the image (on the right) to take you to the star of the week video! 

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.

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.
