Home Working Area Reception - 27th April-1st May 2020

Please find below the information for home learning for Reception Class for week 4 – 27th April–1st May. The home learning information and resources from previous weeks will remain available in the Reception Parent's Hub under the relevant week.


The Curriculum topic web for your year has been added as a resource this week for your information and they have been uploaded to the Curriculum hub as well.


Take a look at the new videos and photos from Mr Dailey, our DASP PE Specialist under the PE hub, lots of ideas for physical activities you can do at home. If you would like to send any videos, photos of what your children are doing with their PE to Mr Dailey/Mrs Fearn, please send them to the school office email.


We also have information from the Dorset Reading Partners/links to authors reading stories, how to read at home for fun, under a new Reading at home hub.

Dear Reception parents,

Week 4 of home learning - Keep up the hard work! You are all doing a fantastic job!
Reading & Phonics

Please listen to your child read a few pages of a book and talk about the book with
them. There is a comments bank on the school website to assist when talking about
the book at home and with writing comments in their reading record. I have included a
copy of the set 1,2,3 RWinc sounds as well as tricky word bricks. Mrs Hunns also does
a phonics session and is uploaded to the school website daily. To maintain the
children’s attention, each week we will be using a different story - This week we will be
using What the Ladybird Heard Next by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks.


Continue to ‘play’ with money and shopping. The coins we would have used would
have been the 1p,2p,5p and 10p. Along with an introduction to money the children
would have started work on counting in 2’s.

Topic Work

We are moving onto a new topic this term - On the farm. Over the coming few weeks, I
will post topic-based activities you could have a go at completing.


I will continue to use Tapestry daily to set out some tasks to complete with your little
ones. From what I’ve seen so far everyone (both grown-ups and children) are doing so
well! Please do shout out if you would like any specifics.

At this difficult time, we still need to remember your little people are little and still need
to be exposed to the simple things in life!

Thank you for your continued support at this challenging time.

Good luck, Mrs Morgan
