Here is an example of a timetable you can complete with your child at home. Keeping to a timetable will organise your day and help keep you and your child calm and comfortable. Making for a more enjoyable experience. I will change the activities often. Please keep scrolling for some extra ideas and websites to help with your child’s learning, I will change these weekly. Remember you are still expected to read with your child everyday.
PE- the body coach is going LIVE each morning at 9am with a PE session for all ages.
Phonics- read, write, inc are completing LIVE phonics sessions each day. Set 1 @ 9:30 and set 2 @ 10am. Children will benefit from both sessions. They are repeated again in the afternoons.
Writing- Can you keep a food diary? At the end of the day write down all the foods you eat today. Try and write in sentences such as I had yummy jam on toast/ I had cheesy pasta for dinner. This could be an activity you do all week and may help promote healthier eating.
The sound mat provided will help your child sound out words. Your child should practice writing in sentences.
There is also a sheet within the home learning pack with lots of other ideas for your child to write about.
Maths- use the number track to 20, but concentrate on numbers 1-10 first. This week look at one more and one less.
Represent a number 1-10 either with dots or practical resource such as pasta/ crayons. Then talk about one more and then one less. Add one more and re count the amount, then go back to original amount and take one away discussing one less.
There are lots of maths sheets within the home learning pack and a list of practical activities to do.There are some online maths games listed in the pack too.
1. Colour hunt- Tell your child a colour such as Yellow, give them 20 seconds to go and find an object around the house that is yellow. Then swap can they give you a colour and count 20 seconds whilst you find an object.
2. Help around the house- Ask your child to help with household chores such as washing up, polishing and tidying their bedroom. As an extra writing activity they could write down all the ways they helped such as 'I helped Mum make my bed.'
Please read with your child EVERYDAY!
Give your child chance to have a break in between each session, let them choose an activity such as playing with their toys, playing outside or having a turn on their iPad/tablet. Let this be a reward for trying hard and listening well during their learning time.

Hello and welcome to Reception 1’s class page.
Here you will find important information but also see some of the wonderful learning that takes place throughout the year.
My name is Miss. Ostranica and I am very excited to be teaching Reception 1 this year.
We have been settling in to reception well, learning school routines and have had lots of chances to explore the continuous provision set up the class so far.
in reception this year we have a main focus of reading. To ensure that all children leave reception being able to read it is important to share a love of reading at school but at home also. We expect children toread at home everyday to ensure that they are given the best start to their school life.
If if you have any questions or queries please don’t hesitate to come and see me.
Miss. Ostranica and Miss. Walmsley
