Hello everyone at home
We hope you had a successful week of home learning last week. As commented last week, if you have not been using the previous blog resources then I would urge you to go back to the beginning and use those daily blogs rather than what we are now posting.
Below is an outline of the activities that the children in school will be doing for their three days. The work is differentiated – if you do not know which column to use then please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope that the children at home have started to write some sentences last week – the children in school have and are getting better at it every day. This week we are going to be thinking about our friends both in school and at home and try to write someone a little letter. Look at this lovely letter that Zante wrote.
It is such a lovely kind note and also demonstrates how the children should be using their phonic knowledge to write, even if that means that it’s not the correct spelling. She has used the ee, ar, ay, ai and oo sounds in her writing. Well done Zante. If your child would like to write a note then upload it on Tapestry and we will share it on here or on Tapestry with the relevant recipient.
Please try to ensure your children are reading everyday – there are a range of phonic books to choose from on https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/
Feel free to do these school based activities twice or supplement them with the following:
Phonics – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCP_FbjYUP_UtldV2K_-niWw/featured
These are a series of lessons using a different scheme to ours but the children will be able to follow. Click on Reception play all and then start from lesson one from the right hand side.
Reading – https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/
You need to register, but it is free, and there are 100s of decodable books on this site.

The Oak Academy is a national online teaching website providing lessons and resources for all primary aged children. You can pick a maths and literacy lesson to complete each day. More lessons are added each week.
The BBC also has lessons online but they do not cover the Early Years curriculum as well as The Oak Academy
Also a good site that we use in school, especially for maths, is Topmarks
The children in Mrs O’Hagan and Mrs Tucker’s groups will be doing this work this week. The children in the Key Worker group will be doing similar work but you can use this to supplement their work if they are not in school every day:
Days four and five – as noted above please either repeat the activities in days 1-3 or use the additional resources listed above.
We look forward to seeing some of you back at school and some of you on Tapestry!
The Reception Team
