A message from Miss Hand...

Good morning Reception!

How are you all today? I hope you all had a really lovely weekend with your family. smiley
I've been looking at the weather forecast again and looks like it's going to snow quite a bit this week. How exciting! It's the start of a new week of learning....and the last week before half-term. 

Today you will see a link below to a short video message from me again which will show you what we are doing this week. I hope you have a great day. Thank you once again for all your hard work and I can't wait to hear from you on the blog.

Take care, Miss Hand and Mrs. Barnett smiley

Need to contact me? Please email -


p.s. Mrs. Barnett has a special birthday might like to wish her a Happy Birthday when you post on the blog today! 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 7th, what is today? What is one more than 7... 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. 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. 


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 Monday's Collective Worship.

1.) Daily devotion. 2.) The Bible story. If you have a Bible at home, perhaps you can read it with an adult. 

Literacy - Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Today we are starting a new story. This week's story is the Goldilocks and the Three Bears. There will be a little activity each day linked to the story! I have added the story 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 in the story, e.g. What does Goldilocks say when she eats the porridge? What do the bears say when they see that someone has been sitting in their chairs?

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

I know an old lady who swallowed a fly

In phonics, we do the following things:

3. Practise reading words with the previous sound in.

4. Watch a video of our new sound.

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

6b. Practise writing words with the new sound in.

1. Alphabet Phonics Song

2. Practise all sounds learned so far!

Little Big Maths

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

Understanding the world

Today we are learning that food comes from plants. We are going to be looking at food that grows on a tree, above ground and underground.

First of all I'd like you to read the story - Oliver's vegetables. If you don't have a copy at home, don't worry. Just take a look at the youtube video below. smiley
Take a look at the slides and talk about where the food grows with an adult. I wonder if you can draw a picture of where some foods grow. If you are able to, you might like to print the pictures and sort them - does it grow in a tree, above ground or underground? Resources can be found below.
