Home Learning for Reception Children

If your child is learning at home, here are some resources that will help your child to access the same learning as the children in school. 

 

We ask that you try to do phonics, maths and topic each day. 

 

Please share your child's learning with us on Tapestry. We will be able to reply to you and send your child messages.

Suggested timetable & ideas for Home Learning

 

We understand that every family is different and that you might need your day to be different. That’s okay!

 

 

Your child has worked hard to learn to be independent at school so this is a great chance for them to show you at home. Reception children learn a lot through playing and their bodies and brains love to be busy! We have some ideas of other things you can do with your child or that you can challenge them to do on their own.

 

Phonics

We use Read Write Inc. You can find out more here:

https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/find-out-more/parents/

At home we might ask you to:

  • do an activity such as go on a hunt in your house for things starting with w. Can you find a watch? A window? Some water?

  • Watch one of the online videos here: https://www.youtube.com/c/RuthMiskinTrainingEdu/videos

  • Watch a video of one of our staff leading a phonics activity

  • Practise reading and writing simple words

 

 

Maths

We will be using the resources from White Rose. There is a daily video for your child to watch and an activity to do here:

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/early-years/

 

We watch and discuss Numberblocks everyday: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/b08bzfnh/numberblocks

Healthy Snack

Yummy! We have a healthy snack every day. We love it if we get to use things like the apple slicer or the tongs! Can your child peel an orange or banana?

The children are often challenged to drink their whole water bottle. Why not do that as part of your home school too?

Health and Self-Care

Maths

We practise our maths skills every day so we can use them in our work and play.

Maths

Independent play

Encourage your child to play independently. You could give them a challenge e.g. draw and colour a picture of an animal, build a model of a castle, write a card to a member of their family, play a game on an app on a tablet etc.

All!

Topic time

We love topic time. We learn about all sorts of different things to make our brains bigger!

 

We will give you some ideas of things you could do with your child or they could do on their own.

All!
