Morning Reception Class smiley,


TGIF (thank goodness it is Friday)!

Here are the suggested tasks for today:


1. Phonics - This week, we are recapping on the phonic sounds and tricky words that we have learnt so far. Today, we are recapping on the 'oo' sound. Read the story below and circle any words with the 'oo' sound in. 


Then, have a try at the tricky word dice game below. Roll a dice and then read the tricky words that are next to the number that you rolled. 

You may wish to have a try at one of the tricky words home challenges below. I have attached a list of tricky words. We have learnt phase 2 and 3 tricky words in class and phase 4 tricky words have been set for home learning. Start with phase 2 words and see if you are confident with them. If you know phase 2 tricky words, move on to phase 3 tricky words etc. smiley

2. Writing - Below is a document produced by the English team at Lancashire County Council. They have come up with some Literacy lessons for Reception Class. The theme this week is 'The Snail and the Whale'. Below is the grid with the activities on with links to videos, texts and resources for the week. I have picked out an activity for you to do each day. However, feel free to select a different activity if you feel that your child would benefit/enjoy doing that activity more. I would love to see your work. Feel free to send me any work on Tapestry.  smiley


Write the following words out on sticky notes using enlarged clear print (one word per sticky note) – soot, foot, rock, dock, sail, snail, foot, put, long, song, land, sand, fins, grins. (Note: these words have been deliberately chosen as it is likely these sounds will have already been covered in your child’s phonics teaching).


You are now going to play a rhyming game using these words, but first your child will have to build and blend them to read!


How to play: Place your sticky notes on a surface in front of you, with the words facing down. Ask your child to pick two sticky notes and turn them over. Encourage them to build and blend to read the words aloud. Do the words rhyme? Say them out loud together several times. (Don’t be alarmed if your child struggles to hear the rhyme!) If they do rhyme, your child can keep the sticky notes. If they don’t rhyme, replace the sticky notes and swap turns. The winner is the player who can collect the most rhyming pairs!

3. Maths -

Have a try at the activities in the document below:

Then, see if you can cut out the 2D shapes and then sort them into the correct box.

I hope that you all have a lovely weekend! Thank you for all your hard work this week. smiley
