Reception Home Learning
I hope you’re all well and staying safe. Please make sure you are looking after your grown- ups! On this page I’ll be adding weekly home learning timetables and activities for you to use. I look forward to seeing some of the things that you have been up to and hope this helps during this difficult time.
Home Learning Packs:
Home learning packs were sent home on Friday and contain lots of activities to complete at home. The activities cover a range of subjects across the curriculum.
These are further free EYFS home learning packs (although they will need to be printed off):
Children were also sent home with a list of lots of other useful websites in their packs. There are also:
Ruth Miskin Phonics: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ
Phonics: http://www.letters-and-sounds.com/ (This has all the early phonics sounds on and some games and resources too. Reception Team are working within Phase 3-5)
PE with Joe Wicks: https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1
https://www.topmarks.co.uk/Search.aspx?Subject=37 (This has a range of interactive games that are tailored to Early Years, and it’s free!)
The 'links' page on our school website also includes quite a few Foundation Stage things and the Feeding Hungry Minds link gives lots of extra ideas.
I am thinking of you and missing you. I am looking forward to keeping in touch via the email@example.com email address just put FOR MISS ROGERS as the subject and it will get to me.

This is a lovely email I have had from Ada's mummy,
Not wanting to be outdone by her big sister, Ada has been baking buns. And smearing icing all over her face!
She’s also enjoyed her home learning pack and some online work, plus learning about the ISS (International Space Station) and a nature treasure hunt.
That sounds very exciting Ada and your buns look really yummy!
This is an email I got from Mia's mummy
Mia wanted to show you her numbers 1 - 100 she wrote independently.
WOW!! You have blown me away!!
This is an email I got from Heath
I have been really busy concentrating on writing and maths, I've also been reading quite a lot.
What a lovely message to send to your friends and teachers, I am sure your friends are missing you too. I know myself and Mrs White are really missing all the children! You have done lots of super work too!
Monday 30th March
Last week, the children had discussed what they would like to learn about in their topic lessons over the next few weeks. Collectively, they chose 'oceans'. Today, we looked at what creatures we would find in the sea. We also discovered which creatures live in cold and hot seas. Afterwards, we painted our very own ocean and then we tinted and shaded our colours to add tone. Our KS2 children wrote a fact file about their chosen sea creature
Ahoy, me' hearties. At home time, the children chose a couple of pirate stories to link with our topic. They were amazed by Mr Elvin's pirate voice

Today, we molded clay into butterflies. We wanted to do this to create a display for our school, to celebrate the community spirit and remember the fun things we did during this time. Tomorrow, when they are dry, we will be decorating our beautiful creations.
Take a look at our amazing Bug Hotel. We went outdoors and gathered some more sticks to add to the Hotel. We even had a look at what guests we had staying there.
Our outdoor NHS display has been recognised by a local NHS worker. They asked if the children could create some small scale rainbows for her hospital ward to spread some cheer and joy among the staff and patients there. Of course, we were happy to oblige!
Wednesday 1st April 2020
This afternoon, the children went outside to complete an orienteering task. They had to work together using a map to find clues and lettered cones which made a word. Together, we put the lettered cones together to make the word, 'rainbow'. Once the children had finished, they were given an extra challenge. They had to see how many other words they could make out of the word, 'rainbow'. Take a look at how well they did.
Today, the children began to decorate their butterflies. Some children also worked very hard to ensure their work was symmetrical.
