Reception Classes

We thought you would like to know what activities we had planned for the rest of this term so that you can include them in your home learning.


Phonics: recapping all the Phase 2 and 3 phonemes and tricky words with a particular focus on blending the sounds to read words. We would also encourage children to write words and sentences using the sounds they can hear in the words.  


Literacy: writing our weekend news and making fact sheets about wild animals. We would also make and write Easter cards.


Mathematics: we would have been learning to recognise, name, describe and match 2D and 3D shapes.


Understanding the World: In our topic ‘Animals’ we would be focusing on ‘Wild animals’ and then ‘Pets’. As part of this we would look at animals and their babies to find similarities and differences.


Although most learning in Reception class is through child-initiated play, we thought it would be helpful to give you a list of ideas each week for fun activities to choose from. They will give your child some valuable experiences and the opportunity to develop some of the skills outlined in the Early Learning Goals. Please don’t feel you have to complete them all, especially if you have already planned other things. We will also keep you updated with links to useful websites.


Most important of all … keep reading and learning the High Frequency Words!
