Play 'Rocket Rescue' This is good for using your sounding out and blending skills! Start with phase 2 and then move onto phase 3. There are lots of other fun games to play on there too.  


Keep going with Reading Eggs, PhonicsPlay, Oxford Owl and Collins too!



Have a think and a chat with your grown up about your time in Reception. This was your first year at school, you started when you were just 4 years old!!! I'd like you you write a sentence about your favourite memory from your time in Rabbits. It might be a friend you made, something we learned about, something funny that you can remember -  anything you like! Draw a picture and write a sentence, I can't wait to read them 




Make a number bond rainbow! 

Number bonds are two numbers that together make a certain number. They are really useful as if we know these off by heart it will help us with lots of different aspects of maths! Start off by making one to 10 and then to 20 if you want a challenge! Pictures below! 




Go on a 'Rainbow Treasure Hunt' Use a similar sheet to the one below and whilst out on a walk or in your garden see what natural materials you can collect that match the colours of the rainbow. 


Make a seaside in a jar! See the instructions below! Or you could make a seaside on a plate or in a box, whatever you like! Get creative 


Here's a lovely story to enjoy about the seaside and friendship...




Have a go at 'Calypso the Flamingo'! 

Sport Challenge - Week Eight


This week's challenge is: 

How many socks can you get in the box? 

Find a box or basket, any type of container you can find.  Find 4 pairs of socks and roll them into a ball.  Take 5 steps back from the container, how many socks can you get in the box? If you manage to do all 4, take another step back and see how many you can get in.  How many steps back can you go before it becomes too tricky, 


Email your results to your teacher and maybe even take a photo of you doing it. 


See if you can beat your grown up.

Good luck and have fun!

Keeping active at home!

On a normal school day the government requires schools to provide children with a minimum of 2 hours of Sports a week. To help you keep your child active during school closures Premiere Education have provided us with an active calendar to follow.  There is an activity on there for most days. Exercise is very important for physical and mental well-being, I hope these suggestions will be helpful.  

Keep an eye out for the April and May Calendar should we need them. 

Thank you Miss Drake
