A message from Miss Hand...

Hi Reception, 

How are you all today? I hope you all had a great Wednesday! Please continue to post on the blog if you are able to. I am loving seeing your photos/videos and messages! You really are working so hard at home. smiley

Today you have all your usual morning activities and then Art this afternoon. I have also added some activity cards for Forest School/Spade to fork/D&T at home that you may wish to have a go at during the week. You do not need to do this. I hope you all have a lovely day learning together with your families at home.



If you need any help with how to post on the blog, please click on this link -

The link will take you to a video which Miss Murphy has created to help with accessing/posting on the blog. 

I hope this helps! 
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 smiley

Mass - Today at 10am

10.00 AM Mass 20th January - St Sebastian

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 19th, what is today? What is one more than 19... 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. Handwriting - I wonder if you can practise writing this sentence - The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. (document below). It uses all the letters in the alphabet, so it is really useful!


2. Have a look at the 'I can see document' below. Take a look at Day 3

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 3 and complete the activity!

Collective Worship

Please click on the document below to see this week's Collective Worship. Please look at Wednesday -

1.) Daily devotion. 2.) I wonder question.


Today we are continuing our new story of Jack and the Beanstalk.

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 matching the word or sentence to the picture. If the word is tricky, have a look at the initial (first) sound in the word. You also have a story word mat which can support you. You don't need to do them all, just do as many as you can. 

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

Mary, Mary, quite contrary

Mary Had a Little Lamb


This week we are looking at mass and capacity. There will be a small activity each day. 

Take a look at the lesson resources below.

1.) Link to lesson video - Alive in 5! Week 3 - Session 3 - Measuring capacity

Phonics - ar

We will practise our new sound ar 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 writing the new sound (pre-cursive letter formation).

6a. 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!

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

1. Alphabet Phonics Song

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

 Lunch time 

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.


Take a look at the slides in the document below. If you have the resources at home, I wonder if you can explore folding techniques and make a folded puppet or folded dragon using paper/card. If you don't have the resources at home and you are able to print, then you might like to use the resource below.

Forest School/Spade to fork/D&T activities

Please see the activity cards below which you may wish to have a go at/explore at home. I will add some new ones next Wednesday. smiley
