Home Learning

Hello Reception! 

 

Below you can find some activities which you can complete during the first 48 hours of self-isolation. Miss Dowling/Miss Mellor will contact you, via a phone call, within the first 48 hours to discuss what your child's home learning will look moving forward. We would love to see the learning your child completes, this can be uploaded to their tapestry journal. 

 

Literacy:

 

Literacy -

  • Have a go at drawing a picture of your family and your house. 
  • Have a go at writing your name. 
  • Have a go at forming the letters s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, o, g, k, e, r and u 
  • Choose a story book and ask a grown up to read it. Draw a picture of your favourite part of the story. Can you act out the story? Maybe you could make some puppets to help you. 

 

Maths:

 

  • Play a board game using a dice with an adult. Practise recognising the number of dots on the dice without counting them. 
  • Have a go at forming numerals 1-5.
  • Go on a shape hunt in your house. How many triangles, circles, squares and rectangles can you spot? 
  • Watch an episode of Numberblocks. 
  • Put up to 5 objects in a bag. Can you count the objects without looking at them?

 

Physical Development: 

  • Make an obstacle course in your garden or inside, use position language, over, under, behind, etc. to explain how to do the course 
  • Learn to throw and catch a ball. 
  • Colour in some dry pasta and create a picture/some jewellery with it. 
  • Have a go at a GoNoodle dance - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQ9q4U2P3ig

 

Understanding the World: 

  • Sing head, shoulders, knees and toes. Can you name the different parts of your body? 
  • Can you make a timeline, choose something you could do in the past, something you can do in the present and something you could do in the future. (past - crawl, present - write your name, future - go to university) Draw a picture for each. 

 

Expressive Arts and Design: 

  • Make a model using objects from around your house. 

 

Don't forget to share all of the wonderful things you do on Tapestry! Please add these as a video or photograph. 

 

Keep safe and well - we look forward to seeing you back in class soon!
