Home Learning – Reception

Well it’s all change again! We hope that you are all well and that the children adapt quickly to their new remote learning.  Education is important and this is a vital stage in their Early Years education, therefore we cannot reiterate enough that doing  a little each day will help keep the children in the momentum and keep them progressing. Equally, staying fit, healthy and happy is essential.  Each week we will send out a planning grid with resources and some videos, We will also meet with the children virtually via zoom each day.

The planning grid will be available on the website each week, resources will be emailed and you will be able to share what the children have completed with you at home on tapestry. If you have any questions, concerns or need to contact Mrs Chisholm,  you can do this via the EYFS email address:

The planning will contain a mix of maths, literacy, phonics, topic based tasks and some creative activities.  The rest of the time is to be spent learning through play, as this is how children learn best at this age, activities like role play, jigsaws, games, constructing with lego type activities, doing exercise, creating music, doing dough gym, yoga etc.  Children can also continue to access purple mash and numbots via their login cards.  Other useful websites are:

The oxford owl website will also provide you with some reading books:

Reading eggs provide a free 30 day trial which you can access:

Get your monster to read also has  free (computer version only) access

Top marks will also have free access to online maths games.


You also have the maths packs with activities in which will help your child, also the sound mats, letter formation sheets and the keywords to practise.  If your child can already read them all, then they can work on spelling the words and put them into a sentence.


World Book Day | World Book Day is a registered charity. Our mission is to  give every child and young person a book of their own.
There is a plan of different ideas you can do on World Book Day below.  I have recorded and emailed all 12 stories to you so that the children can access the books at home.
There is also a competition that your child can enter  for reading in an extreme place, see the school twitter page for more details.
