Practise at Home

Home Learning

Tuesday 12th January - Phonics 

Today we are going to practise one of the special friend sounds. See if you can join in with the lesson and I wonder if you can think of any other words with this sound in? Please click the link below.

Join in with lesson below to practise blending words for reading

Tuesday 12th January - Maths

We are going to be focusing on adding 1 more this week! Please watch this video of Miss Woodward explaining what this means.

Have a go at collecting your own objects around the house (they need to be the same) and working out what one more would be. For example, 'First there are 3 toy cars. Then I added 1 more. Now I have 4'. Try to say the same thing but with different numbers!

Maths 1

Challenge: Draw your First, Then and Now story onto a five frame! (Draw three 5 frames for your child). 

Maths 2

Tuesday 12th January - Literacy 

Can you make your own rocket?
What can you find around your house to make a rocket? Will you build it inside or outside? Will it be big? Will it be small? You could even make a rocket out of something that you can eat afterwards!

Words and Sounds we are Learning

Here you will find a list of the sounds and green (decodable) and red (tricky) words we have taught each week. These will also be sent home with your child for you to practise. 


In Reception we are passionate about reading and expect children to be reading daily. Each time they read, their reading diary needs to be signed and dated by an adult at home.




Please find below letters that have been sent home:
