Reception Class

Hello Reception,


Sadly we are not in the classroom together at the moment but I hope we can return soon, I have some exciting activities planned for you. Please follow the time table below for as long as you are at home just like we would in school. 

I will be checking in with you using Tapestry. Please make sure to upload pictures of you doing your learning and your experiences at home as I love to see the amazing work that you can all do!


Remember, if you have any questions please ask. Send completed tasks to me through Tapestry as you did before so that I can comment on them.


Stay safe and have fun learning

Mrs Vickery

Wednesday Challenge:


Tuesday Challenge:


Can you help in the kitchen today? What were you planning to have for breakfast/lunch/snacks? Could you help your adult to prepare the food. I would love to see what you are making. Could you bake something with the help of an adult. Don't forget to post pictures to tapestry so I can see your creations!



Monday challenge:


If you could be any animal what would you be? Could you draw a picture of the animal? Why would you be this animal? 

Friday Challenge:

I am thinking of a shape. It had 4 sides that are all the same length and 4 corners. It is a flat shape. What shape am I thinking of? What objects in your house can you see that are this shape? Can you create your own clues to describe a 2D (flat) or 3D (fat) shape?


Thursday challenge:


Step counting! Can you have a walk around where you live. How many steps is it from the front door to the furthest wall? How many steps is it from one side of your bedroom to the other? How many steps can you do on a walk with friends or family?



Wednesday challenge:


Can you tell me all about what you have been doing over the weekend? Have you been out exploring? Who did you go with? Have you been watching anything at home? Write some sentences to tell me what you have been doing, who it was with and how you felt about it. Can you draw a picture to go with your writing? Show me what you have done on tapestry!

Summer Term 


This term we are learning all about space! The children will have lots of opportunities to play so who knows what they be doing in space and who is lucky enough to come with them!! We will be travelling in our rockets to the moon and looking at how else we can get around in our transport unit.


In English this term we will be learning about and retelling the story ‘Whatever Next’ and thinking about travelling to space! We will be thinking about we would take with us to space, who we would take and what we might do. We might even receive some special post from our favourite Baby Bear! We will also be looking at the story of the 'Hundred Decker Bus' and where we have been or could go on a bus.


In Maths we are going to be exploring 3D shapes and thinking about how we can describe and sort these shapes into groups. This might even involve shapes going down a slide! Baby Bear keeps hiding in our classroom with his rocket, I wonder if you can tell me where he is everyday?


We are going to be talking about our families this term. We will be sharing pictures of our loved ones and asking questions about the photos. Our friends mean a lot to us in reception so we are exploring what makes a good friend and what happens if we see one of our friends sad or lonely.


Please see the guidance at the bottom of the page for phonics.


Please see the links below for the space songs we are going to be learning! We love to sing in reception!

Phase 2/3 Phonics


Each week we introduce new sounds to the children one at a time. We recap all the sounds we know each day and use the sounds to help us in our writing. Please see the parent video below on how to articulate each phoneme and support your child at home with their sounds.

This week our theme is Space!
