Morning Reception Class smiley ,


I hope that you all had a lovely half - term! I have been spending lots of time in my garden, enjoying the sunshine smiley. I hope that you have been enjoying the sunny weather too!


Below are the suggested activities for today:-

1. Phonics - To begin with, have a try at pages 18 and 19 in your Phonics CGP book. These are recapping on sounds that we learnt earlier in the year. Remember to use your cursive handwriting when writing any letters or words.


Then, I would like you to draw a picture of your favourite day or activity from half term. This could simply be spending time in your garden, playing and enjoying the sunshine or if you went on a family walk, you could draw a picture of what you saw on your walk. Then, I want you to think of a sentence to describe your picture. Can you say the sentence out loud? Can you work out how many words are in your sentence? Now, see if you can use your phonics to write your sentence. Can you challenge yourself to write two sentences? I would love to see your pictures and your lovely writing. Please send me any pictures on Tapestry. smiley


Parents - Please note: It is important for children to use their phonics to write their sentence. For example, if they were to write, 'I played in the garden.' The sentence may look like this:-


I plaid in the gardn.


This is perfectly fine. 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 'Over the Rainbow'. You can pick any of the activities on the grid that you wish to do today. Remember to use your phonics when  writing any words, phrases or sentences. Please feel free to send me any work that you do. I would love to see which activities you have done. I will post this grid up every day. It is up to you whether you want to do parts of it or not.  Parents: Please note - these activities are only suggestions. Please only choose activities which you think your child would enjoy doing at home. smiley

3. Maths - This week, we are learning to tell the time (O'Clock). Below are some songs and videos from YouTube to help introduce telling the time. Watch the hour hand (shortest hand) and minute hand (longest hand) on the clock. When the minute hand is pointing to 12, it is showing a full hour. We call this time 'O'Clock'. The hour hand tells us which hour it is.


Have a look at the following powerpoints below. Can you work out what the time is?

Can you make your own clock to help you learn how to tell the time? You may wish to use the template below, make a paper plate clock or make a card/paper clock. Be creative! smiley

If you are up for a challenge, have a look at the 'Topic Challenges for this week' section under week 8 on the remote learning for Reception. Feel free to send me any photographs of any learning at home.  smiley


I hope that you are all ok and staying safe. I am missing you all lots! 


Have a lovely day of home learning and enjoy the sunshine too!




Miss Farnworth. smiley
