Remote Learning - Week 4


Hi Reception! Are you ready for another week of learning because I definitely am! Last week you all worked so hard and I love all of the pictures I am being sent of activities which you have completed at home! I hope you are excited for this week, not only will we be moving onto a new story, but we will also be starting our new topic all about Hot Climates! Keep up the super work Reception!

From Mr Waters :)


All Phonic lessons will be completed via zoom at 9:15am - Reception children will be continuing their phase 3 phonics and will be virtually practicing their blending and segmenting together. Please make sure that you have a whiteboard, pen and rubber to hand for this lesson. If you intend to do extra work on this, then the website is great and includes games for your child to recap on the sounds which they have learnt throughout the week. 

Below I have also attached the sounds from phase 2 and phase 3. You may want to use these as a way to challenge your child at home with their phonics. You may wish to ask them to make a word, this could be based around the sounds which we are learning throughout the week. You may even want to stick these around your house so your child can visually keep on recapping on their phase 2 and 3 sounds.

Practice reading and writing: all, my, he 

Phonics Challenge - Can you practice writing these tricky words outside. (e.g. with chalk on the pavement).

You may also find the 2 links below useful to help recap on phase 2 and 3 sounds. The videos are jolly phonics songs which reception use to help remember the sound each phoneme/digraph makes through different actions. These then link to the sound cards provided in your remote learning package to help children with their letter formation. 


Maths will take place each day at 9.30am, where children will use the resources below to complete an activity after watching a video from our White Rose curriculum which introduces our maths learning for each day. The link you will need for these videos can be found below:
