Hello Reception,

We have loved seeing your work over the last few days. Thank you for working so hard. This week we have set some phonics, maths, handwriting, RE and topic work.  If you would like to you can also have a go at the optional extra challenges. Don't forget to listen to story and prayer time at the end of the day!

We look forward to seeing all of your wonderful work via the reception email address:

Love from,

Kinetic Letters

This week you will be learning to form k and z.  Children often find it tricky to form letters in the slider family as developmentally the ability to form diagonal lines comes later.  Because of this we have decided to leave the videos from the letters we learned last week on this weeks page so that children have the chance to revise.

This half term we are learning about Baptism. Can you find some photos or videos of your Baptism? Then role play a Baptism with your family. We have attached a resource below to help you with this.

With help from a grown up, start to keep a diary of the birds you see in your garden. Draw a picture and label it to help you remember what they look like. Then write a simple sentence. For example, 'I can see a red robin in the tree.'

End the day with a prayer and a story with Mrs Dodd or Mrs Piercy.  We hope you have had a lovely day!

Here are some tricky word videos for you to watch. Try turning down the volume to test yourselves. If you want to print off the words to play some games there is a pdf below.
