Morning Reception Class smiley,


I hope that you are all well. Keep smiling and working hard. 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 'ee' sound. Read the story below and circle any words with the 'ee' sound in. Then, have a try at the 'ee' dice game below. Roll a dice and then read the words that are next to the number that you rolled. 

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


Talk about what you know about the snail and the whale in the story, e.g. The snail is tiny and it has an itchy foot. The whale sang a song to the snail. Listen to the story or watch again if you like, to find out more.


Ask your child to draw a picture of the snail and the whale and use their phonics to help label them. If your child is able to, write a sentence (or two) about the snail and the whale. Encourage them to rehearse their sentence out loud first, to count the words, and to use their phonics to help them write their sentence(s) down. Make sure you go back to re-read your sentence(s) together.

3. Maths -


Click on the link above. Today, we are looking at week 11, day 2.


Have a try at the activities in the document below:

Have a look at the Powerpoint below on counting in 2's. Then, have a try at filling in the missing numbers when counting in 2's.

If you are up for a challenge, have a look at the 'Topic Challenges for this week' section under week 13 on the remote learning for Reception. Feel free to send me any photographs of any learning at home.  smiley


I hope that you all have a lovely day of home learning!
