Before 0900- Wake Up and Get Dressed

Get ready for the day with independence; have a wash, dress yourself, eat breakfast and brush your teeth. 


0900-0930 - Reading 

Chose a book of your choice to read to yourself or share it with someone in your family, discuss it and enjoy it.   

You could log on to Tapestry to listen to one of the teachers read a story!  Which Mystery Teacher will be reading your story today?  What did you like about the story?  Why? 

You could also watch a CBeebies bedtime story if you would like to, or search Youtube for stories.   

Good children’s authors to search for include: Julia Donaldson, Oliver Jeffers, Giles Andreae, Sophy Henn, Morag Hood, Jill Murphy, Emily Gravett, Nick Sharratt. 


0930-1000- Maths Challenge 

Warm up by counting to 20, forwards and backwards.  You can watch Ms Woolford's video on Tapestry and count along with her! 

Investigate 16.
Start by watching this numberblocks episode (Series 4: Sixteen).
*When children write the number 16, reiterate the message that you are writing 1 for one 10 and 6 more, not 1 and 6.*
Can you find 16 things from around your house? 
Have a go at representing 16 on your ten frames – don’t forget, one of your ten frames should be completely full.
Can you find the different number bonds of 16?  You could use the part-whole model to help you.
Challenge: Write each of the number bonds of 16 that you find as a number sentence. E.g. 10 + 6 = 16.


1000-1030- Home Learning Challenge (to continue after Break Time until 1130) 

Choose one of the challenges on either of your Reception Home Learning Challenges grid to complete and, if possible, share with us on Tapestry. 


1030-1100 Break Time 

Have one healthy snack: a banana, apple, orange etc.  with a glass of milk or water.  Take some time to relax, maybe you could listen to another story online.   


1100 - 1130- Home Learning Challenge 

Continue your Home Learning Challenge that you started – don’t forget to try and upload it to Tapestry so that we can see it!  


1130 - 1200 – Writing Challenge 

To warm up, start with some Handwriting.  Watch Mrs Cunningham's video on Tapestry. 

Now you should hopefully know the story of Jack and the Beanstalk really well.  Can you act it out?  You could listen to the video on Tapestry whilst you do actions or you could tell your own version of the story and get your family to act it with you.  Maybe you might want to make your own stick puppets to use to tell the story.  We would love to see these on Tapestry. :-)


1200 - 1300 - Lunchtime 


1300- 1330 - Phonics 

Open Tapestry and watch the video ‘Set 1 Speed Sounds.’  Say the sounds along with Miss Bailey; can you remember them all and say them before she does?  You should watch and say your Speed Sounds every single day.   

Now you have practised your Speed Sounds, watch Miss Marchant's video on Tapestry - 'ee - Reading Lesson.' 

The 'Additional Resources' section at the bottom contains your Phonics Activity Sheet. 


1330 Onwards- Forest School 

It is time to go to Forest School with Mrs Holmes.  Follow the link below to her Forest School page and click on any of the days on there to select your challenge. 

Mrs Holmes and I would love to see the super Forest School learning that you have been doing so don't forget to upload to Tapestry, if possible, when you have completed a challenge. 



When you have finished, enjoy some free time to yourself or to spend with your family.   

We hope you have had a lovely day and we can’t wait to see your uploads on Tapestry.
