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 

Can you retell the story - The King of Tiny Things - in your own words?  Listening to the story again and drawing pictures, like a story map, could help you.  Alternatively, you could watch the story with no sound to tell the story yourself. 


0930-1000- Writing Challenge 

To warm up, start with some Handwriting.  Watch Mrs Cunningham's video on Tapestry, we are writing - 'ch'. 


Yesterday you designed yourself as the King or Queen of Tiny Things. Today we want you to write about how you would be a good King or Queen. What sort of things would you do to help look after and protect the Tiny Things? We have made some suggestions to get you started. When you write down your ideas make sure you use capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Don’t forget your letter formation, always starting on the line, lead in... 
-I will be kind. 
-I won’t pick flowers. 
-I will pick up litter. 
-I will make bug homes. 
-Release bugs back into the wild. 


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

Choose a challenge!  We now have 4 Reception Home Learning Challenge Grids to choose from. :-)  


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 – Maths Challenge 

Warm up by counting to 20, forwards and backwards.  You could watch Ms Woolford's video on Tapestry for some number writing support. 


Today we need to help the King of Tiny Things. He needs to make a potion recipe that will help the poorly Tiny Things when they get sick. We would like you to record your potion recipes and put them on Tapestry so that on Friday we can share all your ideas and you can test out a friend’s potion. When uploading, please make sure that the written recipe is very clear in the photo so we can share it with others.  Get creative! 

An example recipe may look like the following: 3 spoons of water, 1 spoon of mud, 5 sticks, 1 stone and a sprinkle of grass. 


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 Golding's video on Tapestry - 'ou - Set 2 Sound Lesson.'  This will be a new sound for some children and revision for others.  


1330 Onwards- Plan, Do, Review 

Encourage your child to make a Learning Choice from a list of options (change these to suit) but they should include selecting from: 

  • Indoor exercise (Cosmic Yoga - found on YouTube or GoNoodle);

  • Go for an afternoon walk;

  • A Home Learning Challenge;

  • A Forest School Challenge;

  • Be creative (craft, painting, playdough, baking);

  • Exercise (ride your bike, go for a run, play football/rugby);

  • Quiet activity (independent reading, puzzle, colouring, board game);

  • Screen time on a learning wesbite/app (links can be found on the ‘Useful Websites to Support Home Learning’ section of our COVID-19 Yr R Page). 


When your child has made their choice, discuss: Where are they going to do their Learning Choice?  What exactly are they going to be doing?  How are they going to do it? 

When they have completed their Learning Choice, Review it.  What went well?  How could they improve it?  You could revisit it tomorrow afternoon to improve.  What have they learnt?   


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.
