For phonics today I would like you to listen and join in with the tricky words song. Read the words along with the song. Can you spell them out for your adult?


Mrs Martin - Phonics


My phonics group we are currently working on the 'ar' and 'or' digraphs .  I have added a simple video below that works on those sounds. 

I have also added some pictures below that contain those sounds. Can you write them? Can you write a sentence about two of the pictures or maybe a question?

                             Mrs Burns - Phonics


In phonics with Mrs Burns the children have been working on their initial sounds.

They are currently up to 'm'. Watch the video below to start with and then practise writing 'm'.

Now can you go on a letter hunt around the house and find things that begin with 'm'. You could draw and label them, take a picture and send it to me at the above address or just talk to your adult about them.

Can you think of any words that begin with 'qu' ?

                            Good Afternoon Reception 

How did you get on this morning?

Did you find out any new and interesting facts about winter? 

This afternoon I would like you to continue with your maths work.

 Start with your normal warm up maths using the get fit and count to 100 song/dance I added yesterday (below). 

Then do your number recognition using flash cards (Use the images from yesterday).


For your maths challenge today, I would like you to write your numbers. 

Can you write your numbers to 10?






Remember they need to be formed correctly and the right way round. 


You could even go on a number hunt to find all the numbers you can around the house, on your front door. Have a look and see what numbers you can find. 


Have fun

                                Good Morning Reception  5.1.21

I hope you are all well and ready to work.yes

Today is going to be a little bit different (and the next few weeks) as you will be working from home with the help of your adults.

 Each day I will be setting you some work to do at home and I will be speaking to you over zoom (just like when Mr Wright does his assemblies) and checking on how you are getting on. 


Today we will start the day like any other day and that is by writing our full names in our best handwriting.


Then I would like you to do a quick warm up of our sounds and tricky words. Tell them to your adult. (Read below) Don't forget to say the letter name and the letter sound.


s S     a A      t T    p P    i I    n N     m M   d D  o O  g G    b B


c C    d D   e E    f F    h H    j J     k K    l L    qu  Q    r R    u U 


v V     w W    x X      y Y    z Z


Digraphs /Trigraphs


ff   ll   ss    qu   ck     ee    ng   sh   ch   th   ai  oo   ar   or   igh  


Tricky words 

Remember you cannot sound these ones out. 


the   all    he    we    me   she    at    it    in   an    I     and   the 


no  go    is   to   be   so  into   they   all    you   was    my   her .


Well done! laugh


Next I would like you to do your English work.


Yesterday we started to talk about our holidays and our favourite Christmas presents. 

I would like you to continue to think about your favourite Christmas present and write a couple of sentences about it. 

e.g. My favourite Christmas present was my pink scooter with flashing lights on it. 

Some of you got lots of presents and said that you had two favourite presents so you can write about both of them.   Remember to use your magic writing tool bag and best handwriting.

Think about what you need to start your sentences with, don't forget finger spaces and a full stop at the end. 

I look forward yo reading it!angel


After play we would normally be doing our reading in class. Please make sure you read your reading book and sounds too. 


Remember to try your best, work hard and be good for your grown ups.


Love from Mrs Martin heart
