Good morning children. We hope that you are all keeping well and finding lots to do to keep you busy. We miss having you in school and hope that you are enjoying the learning activities that we are setting for you. For today we would like you to complete a phonics, english and maths activity. We have also added a lovely art activity which is optional. 


Phonics Play is a very useful website which is full of games to support children's phonic development. It is usually a subscription website but during lockdown they are supporting home learning and providing free access to the site. You can log on with the following details

Below you will find a video for todays phonics. As this is a video and not a PowerPoint the children will have to tell you the objects for each sound instead of clicking on them. It moves quite fast through the video slides so once you come to the activity you will need to pause at each page. 

English - Watch the video below and have a go at labelling the clothes you need to wear in winter. As a challenge I would like you to write some captions telling us what you need to wear in winter. Start each one with I need a ..... For example 'I need a hat.' 'I need mittens.'

Maths - Repeating patterns. Watch the video below on repeating patterns and complete the activity Mrs Edwards sets at the end.

Good morning Reception classes!

Please find below some activities to complete today. You can post any photos or return work by using the class email address or using your child’s Tapestry account.

Our focus for the next two weeks is Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers. Watch and listen to the story following the link-



Please see the suitcase worksheet below.

Today, imagine that you are going on a journey like the penguin and the boy in the story. What would you pack in a suitcase for that journey? What things might you need for a journey to the South Pole?

Either print and use the worksheet below or draw your own picture of a suitcase and draw the items that you would take inside it. Write labels for each of the items. Use your phonics to sound out the words if you can.


Please see the ‘say it, join it, write it’ worksheet below.

Either print and complete this sheet or sound out the words using the sheet and write them down on paper.


Practise counting from 0-20 and then from 20-0.

Please look at or print the Winter Counting sheets below. Count and write down the answers if you cannot print the sheet.

Topic- UTW.

Please watch the Penguin Powerpoint below to find out facts about penguins.

Can you choose one type of penguin and draw and colour it. Write a fact or a few facts about it underneath. Use phonics to sound out your words.


Have fun with your learning!

Take care and stay safe,

The Reception team.


RE - Please see below a video PPT of the Epiphany and some ideas of Art/Craft activities you can complete linked to this. When you watch the video you will need to pause it on each new slide to read it to the children. We look forard to seeing your creations.
