Wow! Look at George’s ladybird biscuits. Well done George, they look delicious.
If you made ladybird biscuits or have any photos of the other home learning activities that you have done. You may send them to the school email address and we will upload them for your friends to see.
Are you keeping up with Joe Wicks? It’s very tiring! Here is the link to try today’s PE lesson:
What have you done that you enjoyed at home? Can you draw a picture in your books and write a sentence? We can’t wait to see what you have been up to when we do see you.

Creative – Today we are going to put Maths and English into creating some Fairy Soup. Puck says all his fairy friends are hungry so can we make them something to eat? Get a plastic bowl/container to make this in.
This can be made from anything but fairies like flowers, mud, stones and water in their soup. You may want to add leaves to give it some extra flavour. Go into your garden and find some ingredients. Don’t forget to mix with a stick!
How many ingredients did you put in your soup? Write a list of the things you put in your soup.
Day 2 – follow the instructions following on from yesterday.
Hi Reception, it’s our second week at home and we have some exciting new activities you can do. We have been looking at all the beautiful rainbows some of you have made and looking forward to seeing hearts this week. We hope you had a good weekend. We have been busy in the garden and joining in with Joe Wicks PE lessons. They are very tough!

Thursday 26th March
As its usually our PE session today we will start with one of our fun Wake up, Shake up warm ups.
Can you find a leaf in the garden? What does it feel like? (Soft, crunchy?) Can you think of any words to describe it?
Draw and write the words around your leaf. (Use a full page as we will add to this tomorrow)
Let’s sort out your toys! How many do you think you have? Grab some toys and estimate (have a mathematical guess) how many you can carry. Count and check. Were you close?
We hope you are all having fun, keeping busy with our activities.
If you have playdough/slime – have a go at this to get those fingers moving.
Using the sound ‘l’ for leg, what words can you come up with beginning with l? Write them in your books. You may even want to put these words into sentences.
Using you dice, roll and write the number it lands on. You could draw the dots at the side and form the number.
You may even want to add some of the numbers you roll for example I rolled a 6 and 3. 6 + 3=9
Let’s get creative! Can you make your own playdough? See below on how to do it!
We have practised yoga in school. Here is a fun yoga session you can have a go at to wake yourselves up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhYtcadR9nw
Literacy – take a walk around your garden or look outside. What can you see?
Can you write some sentences? Start with I can see.. For example:
I can see a bird tweeting.
I can see green grass.
Remember to use your Fred talk, (full stops and finger spaces)
Maths – Gather some 3d objects from your home e.g a tin of beans, cereal box, apple, dice. In your home, set up a mini ramp. Can you name the 3D shapes your objects are made from? (We have attached a 3d shape match to help you)
Now the fun bit! Which items roll? Practice down your ramp. Make sure the cereal box is sealed!
(See attached for 3d shape mat)
Today is Monday 23rd March, we are missing you already and are sure that you are missing being in school. So to cheer you up and get you moving we would like to direct you to Joe Wicks The Body Coach’s youtube channel. Each day of school closure he will be live streaming a PE lesson at 9.00am. This is aimed at children but we know you parents/carers will want to join in too! Physical exercise is very important to keep both your minds and body healthy especially when having to stay at home, so please try to join everyday.
Creative Arts: Some children around the UK are making rainbows to stick in the front of their windows for other children to see. Why not make one and put n your front window?
Literacy: On a small plate of salt/flour/rice use your finger to practise the correct letter formation of the letters in the alphabet. You can use the star skills chart that you received in your literacy pack to help with the correct formation.
Maths: Find a tin of food in your cupboard. Can you find something that is lighter than the tin of beans and something that is heavier? You can draw the things you found in your home learning book?
