Reception Home Learning



Hello Reception Class! I hope you are all well. Miss Rose, Miss Samiya and I are thinking of you all everyday.

You have all worked really hard over the last few months -  learning how to write your names independently, reading and writing numbers and words/sentences, adding simple numbers, learning all of your sounds and letter names - please continue to practise these as much as you can. I can't wait for you all to show me all of the fantastic learning you have been doing when I see you again.

Stay safe and hopefully see you soon!

Miss Stewart

Counting Song

We sing along to this video at the start of each maths lesson everyday, practising to count forwards and backwards and recognising numbers


Letter and Sound Recognition

We sing along to this video at the start of each literacy lesson everyday. Each time a letter appears, the children call out the letter that they can see. There is also another version on YouTube which has both uppercase and lowercase if you feel your child is confident with this video.



Tune in everyday at 9am on YouTube where Joe Wicks is delivering a live PE lesson for children whilst they are currently off school. Grown ups can join in too (I speak from experience!)

Click the blue button below which will take you to your daily PE lesson:

The children were also used to frequently taking part in a Cosmic Kids Yoga Session which they all thoroughly enjoy.

a) Sound out the following words and say them aloud to your grown up;

Draw a picture to match each word OR create a sentence that uses each word

Challenge: Can you think of anymore words that have the 'ar' sound? How many can you think of? Create a sentence and/or a picture to match your words.


b) Click on the following link to revise phase 2 and phase 3 sounds. The children will need to read the word on the coin and decide whether it is a real word and belongs in the treasure chest, or if it is a fake word and belongs in the trash. Your children should be confident with the rules of the game as we play it quite often in our daily phonics lessons. 

Buried Treasure

Draw images to help you answer the following questions:


a) Ally the Ant has collected some stones for his baby ants to play with. He has collected 8 stones altogether and has 4 baby ants. How many stones will each ant get?
