Reception Home Learning
The learning opportunities below are designed to enable the children to continue their learning during the school closure. Any written work can be completed in the exercise book included in the home learning pack that came home with your child today. If you or your children have any questions about these activities, I will be contactable on my email: [email protected] If the children would like to send me any screenshots or copies of work they have completed, again feel free to email me.
Gross and fine motor skills are key to a variety of functional tasks e.g. dressing, playing sports, writing, even sitting on a chair. Mrs Roberts has put together some activities that you can do at home to practise your fine motor skills. Click on the links below.
Playdoh This is fun to make with your children and can be used as part of a range of ways. There are lots of different types of dough. Try out some of these recipes.
You can use the dough to create models in the usual way. You can add in cutters and other tools to try different techniques. The children enjoy printing in the dough with their toys and general objects found around the home. The spread the happiness website have developed a fine motor exercise using playdough - don't use cloud dough for this.
Mark making and writing doesn't have to be with pencil and paper. Using a more multisensory approach supports the proprioceptive senses that children need to embed correct letter formation. Mrs Roberts has suggested these activities to try at home while school is closed. Click on the links below for more information.
You can practise your phase 2 sounds by using these flashcards.
Try blending your phase 2 sounds by using these flashcards.
Try this fun colour by phonics activity.
This section gives you downloadable worksheets to teach and practise correct letter formation. They will be given in letter families - their formation starts the same. You can practise letter formation in the gloop or any messy play e.g. sand, chalk on the ground, shaving foam, steam in shower.
Your home learning pack contains some ideas for maths at home and the numicon shapes that your children are familiar with. In addition to this, you may want to print off this workbook.
At school we use the White Rose Maths Hub. They have produced home learning activities, which can be accessed on the link below.
