Home Learning Challenges - Summer 1 

Take a look at our Reception children who are busy home learning

Some children have been making number stones (can you count, order,say which number is one less or one more than another number?), making bug houses (can you count, sort and classify the bugs?), making words using the sounds in their phonics bag, practising number formation and building zoos in the garden!  What will you do?   

If you have any different ideas, please email them to the reception home learning email and I will share them here...


Play games with your family, here are just some of the skills learnt;

  • promotes team work, cooperation and healthy competition
  • build communication skills
  • how to follow instructions
  • help children learn to fail; teaching resilience
  • helps children understand how others think
  • promotes literacy skills

  • brings fun and laughter.                                                             
  • We had so much fun playing our games in school, take a look which games we played.

What has your mouse been up to? He has asked you to challenge yourself whilst at home, can you teach him how to tie a shoe lace? Such a good skill to learn.

This will get you straight to Planet Gold when you return to school! Send your video to the home learning email! 


Home Learning and Home Reading

1. Thank you for your help with your child's learning.  The large blue 'Home Learning book' is due back every Wednesday.  

2. School library books can be changed every Friday morning, you will be able to come into the classroom at 8.50am to choose a book with your child, these books are for you to read and talk about to your child a few times over the week. (see below why it is SO important to read to your child)

3. Phonics Bags, your child be given a Phonic Bag, please read the letter that is in the bag this will help you support their learning.  We will add  more sounds to the bags as the weeks progress. Remember even if your child knows the names and sounds of each letter they should be able to use them to build and make words before getting new letters.

4. Later in the term your child will get a reading book , this will be changed in school with the teachers. We encourage you to draw a smiley face or make a comment in the small yellow comment book.

Please look after the school books and phonic bags as they take such a long time to prepare.   

We expect your child to bring their book bag to school everyday.

Thank you so much for your support in your child's learning
