Morning Reception Class,


I hope that you are all well and still smiling! smiley


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 'ng' sound. Read the story below and circle any words with the 'ng' sound in. 

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 'Monster Mash'. 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


Watch Monsters University Trailer:

Start by looking at all of the different types of monsters. Do you know any of their names?


Repeat, this time pausing to discuss the ones they spot.


What do they look like? E.g. Mike Wazowski is lime green and round (or shaped like a sphere). He has one big eye in the middle of his head. He has two small horns on the top of his head with thin arms.

Find your favourite monster from the list on this website and with an adult, talk about its description:,_Inc._characters

How many eyes has it got?

What shape is its head/body?
Can you spot how many arms and legs it has?

How is it different from the other monsters?


Draw your favourite monster and label it with words or phrases that describe it. Remember to use your phonics to help you. Show another family member and tell them all about the monster.

3. Maths -


Click on the link above. Today, we are looking at week 10, day 4.

Then, have a try at the numicon activity below. Can you draw a circle around the correct answer?
