Reception home learning

During the time that your child may be away from school we will keep this page updated with learning activities for you and your child at home.  These activities will reflect the same objectives that will be delivered to the children attending school.

If you or your child would like any further activities then you can use the link on our useful websites and home learning page here.

If you need any help with passwords or access then please email us on:

We will endeavour to try to help and try to respond as soon as possible.  Please appreciate that we may not be able to help with all issues remotely.

Phonics (15-20 mins per day)

Revise Phase 3 phonics

Phase 4 phonics - CCC words (like strong) and longer two syllable words.  

Learn and practise these by ...

Espresso, in the Literacy section Kim’s Phonics Phase 4, watch the words beginning ccc and long words videos and complete the associated blending, reading and spelling activities. 

High frequency words are words where the children can build their fluency to recognise common words by sight.  Practise reading the, and, a, to, said, in, he, I, of, it, was, you, they, on, she, is, for, at, his, but, that, with, all, we, can. You can make flashcards for these words; there are plenty free ones to download, or you could make your own. 

In addition, alternate between reading and writing activities using ccc words and the high frequency words; children could design their own word hunt game, spot them in reading books and include these words in their own sentences.
