A message from Miss Hand...

Hi Reception,

How are you all today? I hope you all had a good Wednesday. Well done for all your hard work so far and thank you for all you are doing at home.  Please continue to post on the blog if you are able to do this and I will reply to all of your messages. This morning we are continuing with Little Red Riding Hood in Literacy and looking at the numbers 6, 7 and 8 in Maths. You also have the rest of your usual morning activities. You might like to watch the CAFOD assembly at 9.30am. smiley
This afternoon we have PE and Music. I hope you all have a fantastic day and I can't wait to see your blog posts!

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

There is also a new home learning pack available at school. Please let the school know if you are wanting to collect one.


Thank you for all your support, 


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 27th, what is today? What is one more than 27... 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

I have put all the resources you will need in one document today. I hope this makes it easier for you. smiley


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. 

CAFOD - Water of life assembly (CAFOD - Catholic Agency for Overseas Development)

You may wish to watch this short assembly today to find out how even though we are all apart, we are still connected.

In this assembly we think about how important water is and we thank God for the special gift of water. We also think about what actions we can take to help those with little or no water in the world.

The video will premiere at 9.30am.

Literacy - Little Red Riding Hood

Today we are continuing our new story of Little Red Riding Hood. 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 writing a shopping list for Little Red Riding Hood. What might she put in her basket? What might she need to buy from the shop to take to Grandmother's house? Have a look at the pictures of food on the shopping list to help you. Say the word and think about the sounds that you can hear in the word. Can you have a go at writing them down? smiley Remember to use your sound mat to help you!

I have also added a food word mat for support too. Enjoy! smiley

MusicTo be able to identify high and low (pitch) sounds.

1. Practise singing this week's Nursery rhyme - Wiggly woo.

2. Read the story 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'. If you have a copy of the story at home, perhaps you can read this with an adult. If not, I have added a youtube version of the story below.

3. Think about the voices of the bears - High/low sounds. This is known as pitch - how high or low a sound is.

In the story, whose voice is low? Whose voice is high?

4. Watch the video all about pitch - high/low sounds.

5. Read the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears once more. This time, I wonder if you can join in with the voices of the bears. Can you do a low voice for Daddy Bear? What about Mummy bear? Can you do a high voice for Baby bear?
