Morning Reception Class smiley,


I hope that you are all well. Keep smiling and taking lots of breaks.

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 short 'oo' sound. Read the story below and circle any words with the short 'oo' sound in. Then, have a try at reading short 'oo' sound words in the Powerpoint below. 

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


Re-watch The Snail and the Whale, this time pausing the film to discuss some of the images.


Use prompts such as What can you see? Encourage your child to identify things they can see in the picture – whether it is referenced in the text or not! E.g. seagulls, lighthouse, anchor. You can encourage your child to expand on their response by using the prompt, Tell me more… This is a great way to develop vocabulary and support discussion.


You may wish to pause and play I spy, e.g. I spy, with my little eye, something beginning with … Perhaps you could make a list of all the different animals you can ‘spy’ throughout the film – there are lots! Use your phonics to help you write them down.

3. Maths -
