A message from Miss Hand...

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

I hope you enjoyed your weekend and that you managed to get outside. Did you see the snow? smiley

I have really enjoyed your blog posts. Please keep posting them. I am going to start giving out house points for tasks completed - I have reset the house points back to 0, as we do at the beginning of a new term. The points will be given for certain tasks e.g. completing different subjects, having a go at the word of the day etc.


Please remember that you ebooks on ActiveLearn, maths games on numbots and

spellings on J2blast for you to access too. Enjoy! smiley

If you have any queries about the home learning or if you need any support, please send me an email to the address below -


Thank you for all your support,

Miss Hand and Mrs. Barnett smiley

J2blast - This week's spellings

am, man, mat, map, Pam, Tim, Sam

I have added a new list of spellings on J2blast for you to access. Well done to Luke, Constance, Ruby, Valentina, Arta, Nathan and Nahom who have all been working really hard practising the spellings I set last week. 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 10th, what is today? What is one more than 10... Perhaps you can talk about the date and weather at home. There is a youtube link of the days of the week song below.

Basic skills

1. Practise writing your name - If you can already do this, have a go at your surname or even your middle name if you have one. smiley


2. Have a look at the 'I can see document' below. Take a look at Day 1

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 1 and complete the activity!

Collective Worship

Please click on the document below to see this week's Collective Worship. Please look at Monday - 1.) Daily devotion. 2.) The Bible story. If you have a Bible at home, perhaps you can read it with an adult. smiley


Today we are starting a new story. Over the next few weeks we are going to focus on a traditional story each week. This week's story is the Gingerbread Man. There will be a little activity each day linked to the storysmiley

I have added the story powerpoint below and all the other resources you will need in one document. Today I would like you to read the story and then have a go at sequencing the story using key pictures from the story. I wonder if you can retell the story using the key pictures? Think about the key language, e.g.

"Run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man".

Phonics - oo as in moon

We will practise our new sound 'oo' 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.

1. Alphabet Phonics Song

2. Practise all sounds learned so far!

3. Practise reading these words

4. New sound - oo (as in moon)

6. Letter formation - oo

5/7. Practise reading and writing these words

Please take a look at this week's Little Big Maths powerpoint (resource below). These are basic skills to practise throughout the week.

Take a look at the slides below. If you have the resources at home, you might like to have a go at one or both the focus activities. I have added some shadow puppet templates below that you might like to use.
