Home Learning 1


The home learning for this week is a series of activities and ideas.   Please continue to read with your child, and practice having your child read to you, at least three times per week.  Home learning can be evidenced through Tapestry or by emailing photos to Mrs. Jones or Mrs. Cook (depending on your current teacher).   Any questions or concerns that you have, please feel free to email your current teacher, or phone the school office. 

Warm Regards, 
The Reception Team 

Hello, it has been so nice to get to talk to some of the children and families this week.  I cannot believe that it is already the last week of the term!  It has gone by so quickly!  We hope you are continuing to stay safe at home.  Below are a list of activities to try for the week along with your weekly reading.  Remember that the Move More Challenge ends on Friday and all forms/records need to be emailed to me please.


We look forward to seeing you at school when we can,

Easter Activities

At the beginning of each week we will upload work for your children to do at home. There will be 5 literacy tasks, 5 maths tasks and 5 other tasks including PE, expressive art and design, understanding the world, communication and language, and personal, social and emotional development.  Home learning can be shared online through Tapestry or by emailing so that your learning can be recorded in your learning journal.  Reading should still take place at least 3 times a week. We hope you enjoy the activities set and look forward to seeing you when we return to school.

Welcome to Genesis class!  Our topics stem from high quality literature and children’s interests.  We are learning about traditional tales such as The Three Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Jack and the Beanstalk and The Gingerbread Man. 


A New Chair for Baby Bear

The children worked together in pairs to build a new chair for Baby Bear.  They needed to decide which materials they would use and negotiate a plan to construct it.  Some children chose to use junk modelling in the indoor environment and others used the EYFS outside space to make a chair for Baby Bear.

Porridge Tasting

We followed a recipe to make porridge and tried different toppings.  It was fun to be a ‘Have a Go Hawk’ and try the toppings of cinnamon, honey, and jam with our porridge.  We then made a graph to show our favourite topping!


We decided to write a recipe to Goldilocks, using our developing writing skills, so that Goldilocks wouldn’t have to keep eating the Bears’ porridge!
