05th Tuesday January

Hello Reception

Welcome to your first ever day of online learning. It is a very exciting adventure for us all. 

Today is all about getting back into the frame of mind of being back at school / Back into learning.

Challenge - I can write / mark make an event from my Christmas Holidays.

Our first task of the day is to share our holiday news.  Think of a favourite thing you have done, received, eaten. Or a memorable conversation you may have had with someone on Zoom!

Did you play a good family game together?

Can you retell the event - Who was there? What happened? How did you feel? 

Can you then put it into a picture /some words? Can you write a sentence about your experience?

Here are some examples for you about my Christmas:

I cooked Christmas dinner for the first time in 12 years! It was delicious.

I loved sitting by the fire watching films with my family. We loved watching Soul.

I attended my first every Christmas Mass on Youtube. It felt very strange, but it was beautiful. 

I got very excited on Monday when the dustbin lorry came to collect the excess rubbish!

I have attached some writing frames below for drawing or writing. They are only there if you would like to use them. Don't forget to send me a picture of your work once it is finished.


Our new topic of Alive in 5 starts today. We are looking at Zero adn numbers to 5 this week.  Today we start with the concept of Zero.  Miss Cooper from White Rose resources has a daily session and resources for you - I will add each one daily.

Here is today's.

Below is the PDF to go with the session. 

PE: We are looking at moving to music and we start this week  - travelling like animals - so I thought the Cosmic kids link may be a good exchange for you to try at home. 

Below is the link for Cosmic Kids - Go On A Safari Adventure! 🦁 Yoga Club (Week 21)


Go through all of the phonics sounds that we have learnt so far. this should be run through daily . the link below will take you to the Oxford Owl site - it goes through all of the sounds - you can choose the speed or you can do it manually on the display.

Don't forget to share at least one book with a grown up today - can you talk about what is happening in the story? Can you share your ideas about what is happening and what could happen next? 

Have a lovely day - I look forward to hearing your holiday news.
