Reception Monday 20th April Home Learning

Hello Parents and Carers

We hope that you all had a great Easter break (in the circumstances) and enjoyed some family time together.  Hopefully the children feel ready to begin their learning with you again at home.  This week for phonics tasks I’ve chosen a different book to read everyday, just to consolidate the taught sounds, and to get them back into the rhythm of regular reading.  If you have not already done so you will need to login to the Oxford Owls website.  Please try and get your child to read books more than once.  However, if you cannot access the books then please re-visit last week’s phonics – we often do this after a two week break.

In maths this week we are also going to consolidate their addition and subtraction skills.

For speaking I’m going to revisit the Owl Babies story that we did earlier in the year in class.

Please let us know if you need any help or support – the best way to contact us is on  Also keep posting pictures of them up on Tapestry so that we can send your children a note or message…anything to keep them motivated and smile!

Hello children

We hope you had a fantastic Easter break in the sunshine and have had a nice rest.  It’s very sad that we cannot come back to school yet but you need to pretend that your grown ups are your teachers and do you work for them like you do for us.  You can send us pictures of your work and all the grown ups in Reception will see it.  This week we are going to look at the Owl Baby book again – do you remember it?  First of all you can listen to me telling you the story…..

Speaking – Listen to me telling the Owl baby story, join in when you can and then tell your grown up what you like about the story.
