Hi Reception, I hope you are all well and keeping safe at home.

Thank you for all your support,

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 6th, what is today? What is one more than 6... 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

Basic skills

Today I would like you to do two things.

1. Practise reading/writing your high frequency words - I have put a link below to the high frequency word page where you will find all the sets of words.

2. Have a look at the picture - 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.

Basic skills - Word of the day - weep

Take a look at today's word of the day! Perhaps you could have a go at the activity too. 

Collective Worship

Please click on the document below to see this week's Collective Worship. Please look at Friday - the daily devotion and the Hymn practice. I have added a youtube link to the song below.

I'm gonna trust in God

Phonics - or

We will practise our new sound 'or' today.

In phonics, we do the following things:

1. Sing the alphabet song (the video below is slightly different to the one we sing at school, but the children know it).

2. Practise all of the sounds that we have learned so far.

3. Practise reading words with the previous sound in.

4. Watch a video of our new sound.

5. Practise reading words with our new sound in. We segment the sounds and blend them together to say/read the word, e.g. the word -  cat - segment ---> c-a-t - blend ---> cat!

6. Practise writing the new sound (pre-cursive letter formation).

7. Practise writing words with the new sound in.

Today we are going to continue with our story of Brown bear, brown bear. First of all, I wonder if you can you read the story with an adult? If you don't have a copy of the story at home, I have added a youtube link below.
Today there are two options - feel free to choose one or you can do both if you so wish smiley

1. Use the story word mat to write some simple sentences e.g. I see a red bird/I see a red bird looking at me.

(Writing frame can be found in the document below or you might like to draw/colour the animals and then write about them).

2. Use the animal mat (all these animals are cvc words e.g. cat, dog, pig etc) and the colour word mat. I wonder if you can write your own sentences about these animals? You can choose any colour from the word mat. For example, you might like to write a sentence about a pink fox or a purple pig. I see a pink fox/I see a pink fox looking at me.

(Writing frame can be found in the document below or you might like to draw/colour the animals and then write about them).


I have also added a phonics sound mat and high frequency word to help. All of these resources can be found all together in the document link below too. Enjoy!

PE - 3 options...Pick one to do smiley

1. Take a look at the PE home learning Athletics activity below - I wonder if you can have a go at some of these activities.

2. Cosmic Kids Yoga - Go on a safari adventure (it's a long video - you don't need to do it all, just as much as you want to).

3. PE with Joe Wicks - Again, you don't need to do it all, just as much as you want to.
