Welcome to Term 5 Reception Children!

19 April 2020

Good Morning Reception Children!


Today is the start of a new term. We are really missing you and wish we could all be at school but sadly we have to stay safe at home and so here is your home learning for the week.


Like previous weeks, you can also find your child's learning on their interactive learning diary. Please use this to upload your children's work. We would love to see photos and examples of their work plus anything fun you are doing at home. To log on go to: https://portal.interactivelearningdiary.co.uk/

If you need help logging on or with any of the activities, please email us This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will get back to you as soon as possible.


Weekly Phone Calls

It was lovely to speak to so many of you before the holidays. We will ring again this week.  

Miss Wilkinson has changed her day. She will now ring Ladybird children every Tuesday morning between 9am and 12pm.Mrs Sessions and Miss Vintin will ring Caterpillar children every Wednesday morning between 9am and 12pm.
If you need to speak to us before then, please email the school and we will get in touch with you.


Weekly Handwriting practice

We would like you to practise your handwriting again this week. Try and practise the letters from other weeks too: l   i    t   j   u   y

This week we are going to practise writing these letters:

b    h     m

Ask an adult to help you draw some straight lines in your book. Use a ruler if you have one. Can you write the letter correctly using the lines? Leave a finger space between each letter. See the image for an example.


Can you write some words that you know that have some of the letters in them?  bit  hum   hill

Try and practise your handwriting every day.

Take a photo of your handwriting and ask your parent/carer to put it on your interactive learning diary at the end of the week. Your teachers would love to see it!


PE with Mr Rossetti


Another fun lesson with Mr Rossetti. You'll need 5 things for today's lesson - a shoe, a bottle, a teddy, a loo roll and a pair of rolled-up socks. Have fun!

Can you complete it more than once?

Questions to support your child:

Who is in your story going to be about?

What happens in the middle of your story?

How does your story end?
