Home Learning – Week 7 (18.5.20)

Hello Reception,

What a busy week it has been! The Early Years team have been busy bees creating an exciting outdoor learning environment for you all to share together. Have a look at some of the new areas we have created. We can’t wait for you to see them!

Here is next week’s home learning. Take care, stay safe and hopefully we will see you soon.

Miss Kavanagh


I’d like you to find out more about The Pentecost Story using the PowerPoint below. This is a story about Jesus’ Disciples and The Holy Spirit. Can you learn to say ‘thank you’ in three different languages? You might want to record a video and send them to our school email address so we can use them to teach others!


This week I’ve been doing some yoga to help me to keep calm and manage my feelings at this time. I think it has really helped me to stay positive and I’d like you to give it a go too. Yoga is great for strengthening the body and mind. Cosmic Kids yoga is a fantastic resource and there are lots of videos available on YouTube. This one below is one of my favourites.


I am so pleased to hear how many of you are enjoying the phonics play comics. It is great to practise and apply your phonic knowledge. This week I would like you to access some Literacy lessons following the links below. Miss Hughes at Oak National Academy will teach you exactly what to do and what you will need! I hope you enjoy them.

I know you have all been enjoying Mr Mc’s phonics lessons on YouTube and have been recapping the phase 3 phonemes. You are all at different stages so please continue these lessons to build on your current learning.


The online lessons set last week were very popular and I was sent lots of brilliant learning photographs from parents and carers! Thank you, I’ve set three maths lessons this week to build on the learning you have already done. I hope you enjoy them.

Understanding the World

Elliot’s caterpillars have finally transformed into something beautiful! Have a look at the picture and see if you can spot the butterfly with the chrysalis it has emerged from. It is truly magical.

Expressive Art and Design

Your butterflies were fantastic last week, thank you for making such beautiful, colourful creations. This week I’d like you to explore colour mixing. A great activity to help with this is water play. You will need 3 jugs of water and red, blue and yellow food colouring. Add a little food colouring to each jug to create blue, red and yellow coloured water. Can you pour two different colours into a bowl? Which new colour have you created? Don’t forget to send us some photographs to with the subject FAO Miss Kavanagh.
