20th January - Wednesday

Good morning Reception Welcome to Wednesday's learning.

I hope you have a lovely day and I look forward to seeing you later on Zoom...

Let's get active to start our day!

Daily activity – make sure you are active every day. If you would like to try a Yoga session Cosmic kids is great – I have put a link for one of them below – but there is a whole collection. 

CBeebies also offer daily sessions

Session 1 Daily handwriting –

This is a web address to a link that we use in school.  The children are all at very different stages in their handwriting, letter formation and pencil grip.  This site takes you through the stages. Last term we looked at the straight lines. We are now on curves. It shows you a little clip first and then you get a chance to have a go.  If you could start each day with a little bit of handwriting – it will help with letter formation.

We are also going to work through a letter a day. Use your white board.

Tunnels  - pre handwriting patterns.

We are also going to go through the alphabet – to master a letter a day. Today’s letter is….

Wednesday – hhhh

Session 2 - Phonics


Today in Phonics we look at our next sound from set 2.

(For those of you familiar with Read Write Inc this is a new sound. we have oor / or- I have attached some PDF resources below - but there is no practice sheet for this one.)

Oor  - shut the door

This is today’s sound have a go at saying it and then have a look at the flash card below. 

Can you say the sound?

Can you practise writing the letters?

Can you read the sound when it is in other words?

Can you make some flash cards from the words on the sheet – play a game with them – turn them over / read them / if you get them right you get to keep them – if you don’t they go to your opponent.

Can you add the ay, ee, igh and oo, ow, oo, oo, ar words to make a really challenging game today?

You could make a space ship / rocket and fill it with all of the oor words that you have created / remembered – Don’t forget to ‘shut the door before you take off into space!

 Take a break and listen to a story

Share a story / listen to a story

Have another listen to the story Supertato on the link below.

Session 3- Maths

Alive in 5 - Shape space and measures.

Today we are looking at Measuring capacity – Measuring Capacity

Mrs Cooper is looking at how many trowels she uses to fill plant pots – you could explore this at home today with containers - you could use soil,  rice / sand/ lentils / flour/ salt..  Anything that you have handy at home. Make sure you are set up so you are not going to make more, mess and work. You must clear up your own activity!  You could even turn it into a planting activity!

Outside may be a good place to do this, or on a tray.

The page above has lots of ideas - they are just for fun! 

Session 4  - Physical Development / Expressive arts and design

Can you make your own Supertato - I have attached a PDF for accessories to help you with your creation. Ask your grown up if you could use a potato from the vegetable box to do this. You could use something from your toy box. (A ball / something round?)


Session 5 - Knowledge and Understanding of the World

Today we are finding out about where food is from around the world.

I have attached some PDF’s below with some ideas about where food is from around the world. A world map - to have a look at – I am sure you could find a detailed one on Google maps – if you get a chance.

Have a look in your cupboards at home – what can you see on the labels about where the food is from.

Are there any stickers or labels on your fruit and vegetables to say where they are from?

The PDF’s list some foods and share some facts about their country of origin. Spend some time exploring and finding out about food from different places in our world.

(Do you grow anything in your garden that you can eat? – I would love to hear about it.)

Well done for your great learning today - I hope you have had a lovely day?
