Reception Class

Welcome to Reception class home learning page. This page is designed to support you and your child with learning from home. There are several links to different websites that will support Reading, Writing, Maths, PE and science. 


Just click on the picture to visit the site. 


The daily expectation is to complete the Phonics, Literacy, Maths and Vehicle work. We would work in small groups in class and follow the activity with learning through play. Remember to encourage your child and have lots of fun with the work. Break the work up into small chunks and remember that it is the child's work I would like to see. Encourage them to sound out using their phonic knowledge. 

Please remember to upload work to evidence me so I can mark it and give feedback.

Phonics: Miss Owens group watch the phonics film and write Fred Finger words.    


Mrs Hall and Miss Whittakers group watch the films, join in and complete Fred fingers. 




Maths: This week we have been learning to weigh and measure. We have been predicting which item is heavier before we weigh it. Find 5 items in the house and think about which is the heaviest? which is the lightest? why do you think that? Can you order the items from heaviest to lightest? How can we check? If you have scales at home use them with your child to check if their predictions are correct. 


Literacy:  Watch the Rainbow Fish story. 

Think about what the Rainbow Fish did to make friends. What can we do to be good friends. Write your idea on a scale shaped piece of paper and we can join them all together when we go back to school. 




Afternoon: log into purple mash and complete the 2do. The activity has a video of old and new transport times. Add in some pictures of old and new transport. Write what type of transport it is and write a simple description. Remember to save your work once completed.
