Wednesday 22nd April Reception

Good morning Reception,

I have found a really nice positive song about self-belief that has dance moves to get some exercise in too. Alternatively, you can just have a dance to your favourite song that makes you happy, or maybe both! You need to scroll down to the first video to access the song.


We are all missing our friends and normal routines so I wanted to share an activity to help us all remember our friends and the good things about them. Today, I would like you to draw a picture of your best friend(s). Can you write why they are such a good friend to you? What do you like about them?

Next, draw yourself. What makes you a great friend? Can you write down three things that make you a great friend?

Finally, when you see them next what are you going to do together?

Maths: Doubling

You have been working on halving this week but today we are going to work on doubling.

Double means twice as many. Both numbers need to be the same and then we add them together.

Sit opposite somebody at home, this could be a sibling or parent. One person will hold up some fingers, any amount from one to five. Now the other person needs to hold up the same amount. If I hold up 2 fingers, you hold up 2 fingers as well. You can then find the double by counting the total. Remember to use the language “Double 2 is 4.” Take it in turns to go first.

Literacy: My news

At school, many of you enjoyed writing about what you have been up to. This is something we did once a week. Can you write about your news since being at home? This could be your favourite meal, which toys you have been playing with or an activity you have enjoyed from the blog. Try to aim for three sentences remembering your capital letters, full stops and spaces between your words.

Phonics: Tricky word BINGO!

I know this was a Friday favourite at school and something many of you enjoyed. Here is a video for you to play along with. Please pause the video if you need more time as it is difficult to judge how long to wait when recording.

Enjoy the sunshine and happy learning,

Miss Goodswen and Mrs Hughes

    Phoebe really enjoyed playing the rocket word bingo. We even practiced maths by working out how many more words she needed to pick.

      That’s so clever to combine the two. Well done Phoebe 🙂 Mrs Hughes

    Joshua has written a letter to Samuel telling him what he has been up to:

    To Samuel

    Thank you for my birthday picture
    I watched Sonic the hedgehog film and played the game.
    What have you been doing?
    From Joshua

    This has been popped in the post and hopefully Samuel will receive in the next couple of days.

    On to number doubles now 🙂

    I woke up in the morning.
    I made my bed.
    Brushed my teeth.
    Got dressed and went down stairs.
    Did Joe Wicks
    I had breakfast Cereal YUMMY.
    After I went outside in the garden.
    later I started to do my work.
    And know I am doing literacy.

    Tricky Word BINGO

    Me and Andi have finished the bingo. Andi was able to find all of the words without any help.
