Reception

The suggested timings for the daily work timetable is only meant as a guide.  This is a suggested maximum time you should be expecting your child to undertake the activities we provide.  We are passionate and fully committed in supporting you to provide education for your children whilst they are off school during the current world events, and all of the activities we have provided are suggested. Above all, your child's happiness and well-being is the most important thing.  Use your judgement as a parent to decide what to ask your child to complete each day and if you want to do things in a slightly different way than is suggested - then feel free to get creative with the activities. 

Useful Websites

Counting Games use the tabs at the top to choose a category. Your child will be working at the 3-5 year level but some may want to challenge themselves on the 5-7 year games.  - https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/5-7-years/counting 

 

Reading - you will need to sign up to this resource but it is free to use. Children read words and phrases to earn coins. https://www.teachyourmonstertoread.com/

 

Phonics - there are a few free games on this website. A particular favourite is 'Buried Treasure'. Please ensure the children are only learning within phase 2 and phase 3. https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/Phase3Menu.htm

 

Home Learning

This page will be updated daily. Miss Bartholomew and Mrs Bassett can't wait to see your learning on Tapestry so make sure you are uploading things you have done on there. You can also use your exciting new Home Learning book to show us your learning. Why not take a photo of it and put that on Tapestry too! The timings we have given are a guide. It is important to remember that children in Reception spend a large amount of time learning through play and we value the importance of both outdoor (in your garden if you are self-isolating and are able) and indoor play. Please remember- We expect the children to still be reading on Bug Club 3 times per week.

Have fun with these exciting activities!
