Wkb 30.03.20 Home Learning Week Two

Hello Reception!

We hope you are keeping safe and well.

This is just a message from Miss Pooler and Mrs Adams to remind you of some of the things you can be doing at home to keep busy!

We hope you are working through your Home Learning Packs.  In addition to the Home Learning Packs we will also be putting up weekly activities to cover different Early Years areas.

Please can you take lots of photos of the activities you are taking part in so we can share together when we go back to school.


  • Number hunt- hide numbers from 1-20 around the house for your child to find and then to order.
  • Repeating patterns- use any toy e.g. construction/animals/cars to create a repeating pattern. A repeating pattern can be colours, shape, size etc. For example: red, yellow, blue, red, yellow blue.
  • Draw a number line outside and write some number sentences for your child to work out (The children really enjoyed doing this activity in class). Here are a list of number sentences:
9+9= 8+3= 4+1=
7+4= 6+5= 2+1=
8+9= 7+3= 3+2=
7+6= 5+3= 6-2=
7+5= 5+5= 5-3=
8+4= 6+4= 5+2=
12-4= 10-3= 6-1=
10-5= 9-4= 1+3=
9-6= 7-2= 2+4=
13-8= 9+3=
15-9= 7+5=
16-5= 8-5=



When writing remind your child to use their phonics to clap and sound out words, remind them of tricky words, remind them to use a capital letter, finger spaces and full stops. Please encourage your child and allow them to phonetically sound out the words e.g. when writing ice-cream your child may write ighs kreem. This is phonetically plausible for us to read back

Phase 3 diagraphs/trigraphs: zz,qu,ch,sh,th,ng,ai,ee,igh,oa,oo,ar,or,ur,ow,oi,ear,air,ure,er

Tricky words:


  • Write a diary
  • Send a text to a loved one
  • Write instructions e.g. how to wash your hands, make a jam sandwich etc.


Daily phonics:



Please refer back to your reading log which was sent home in your home learning pack.

  • Read with your child everyday
  • Video your child reading and send to a family member
  • Choose a book- pick a word and have a race to see who can find the word on the page first.

Understanding the world

  • Look through old photos and videos of your child and family members and talk to them about past events
  • Taste some new foods and talk about which part of the world they come from.
  • Use your senses to describe different food: taste, smell, look, touch and hear.

Expressive arts and design

  • Watch Go noodle videos online to move your body in different ways to the music
  • Make some instruments and play them to your favourite song
  • Listen to your favourite song and have a sing and a dance.


Fine motor activities

Fine motor development is a skill needed to be able to control and build strength in the small muscles in your child’s hand and fingers. Without fine motor skills your child will not be able to write or hold objects using the correct grip.

  • Empty egg carton, pom poms and tweezers. Ask your child to use the tweezers to place a pom pom in each compartment. This can be extended to writing a number in each egg compartment and asking your child to match the quantity.
  • Play dough/ modelling clay


Physical Development

  • Daily PE with Joe Wicks
  • Just Dance on YouTube
  • Enjoy going for a walk with your family
  • Learn to ride your bike
