A message from Miss Hand...

Hi Reception, 

I know it is strange not being in school, but I hope you are all well and keeping safe at home. Mrs. Barnett and I miss you all! I am really enjoying reading all of your messages on the blog and seeing your photos and videos of what you are doing. smiley Please keep posting as much as you can! You are all superstars!

At some point today I will be phoning you to say hello, to check that you are all ok and to see if you need any further support with home learning. I look forward to speaking to you! smiley
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 -


Thank you for all your support,

Miss Hand and Mrs. Barnett 


Please remember that you ebooks on ActiveLearn, maths games on numbots and spellings on J2blast for you to access too. Enjoy! 

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 11th, what is today? What is one more than 11... 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 song

Basic skills

1. Practise writing numbers - Practise writing numbers from 0 - 10 (resource below). If you can do this, why not have a go all the way to 20.


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

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 2 and complete the activity!

Collective Worship

Please click on the document below to see this week's Collective Worship. Please look at Tuesday - 1.) Daily devotion. 2.) Bible song. I have added a link to the song below. smiley

Father God, I Wonder


Today we are continuing our new story of The Gingerbread Man.

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 drawing your own story map. You could just choose some of the key moments in the story if you like, e.g. a picture of each animal as they appear in the story. There are a couple of examples of story maps to give you an idea. I wonder if you can label your story map. You can use the word mat, sound mat and high frequency word table to help you. smiley

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

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