Wkb 06.04.20 Home Learning Week Three

Hello Reception!

Another little note from Miss Pooler and Mrs Adams  to say we miss you, we hope you are staying safe and well and we hope you are enjoying your home learning so far!

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 when we go back to school.


  • Using your number line call out a number and see if your child can say one more and one less than the given number.
  • Go on a 2D and a 3D shape hunt.
  • Measure the length and height of everyday objects. Can you find an object longer/shorter than this object? You can use everyday objects to measure e.g. cubes, paperclips, hands, feet.
  • White Rose home learning:



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 J

Understanding the World

  • Grow a plant and discuss the changes that occur. Talk about what a plant needs to grow. Water the plants.
