Thursday 14th January


In class today we said the register in French, so, bonjour Reception 2 families!

Welcome to Thursday's Home Learning. I hope that you are all well and taking good care of one another. Thank you for the photographs that you are sending in of your children enjoying their home learning. I have uploaded them under the icon 'R2’s Home Learners Gallery' into weekly files. It is wonderful that the children have the opportunity to see their classmates until they are reunited.  laugh


Thursday's Literacy/Phonics


Please follow the link and join in with the Jolly Phonics songs and actions to keep those sound and letter correspondences secure in the children’s memories.


Let’s take a closer look at the ‘qu’ digraph. Follow the link below and join in with the video as it asks you to take part


Read the ‘qu’ phoneme spotter story. You can either read it from the screen or use the link at the bottom of the page to print it off.



Can you find the ’qu’ words in the story and write them in a list?


Here is a game that will help the children to practise reading ‘qu’ words. You can print it off if you like, just follow the link at the bottom of the page.






Please follow the link below to listen to and look at illustrations in our story The Polar Bear's Home. But before you do click on the green link here...

The Polar Bears Home

So what was the setting like? 

Did you think of some WOW words to describe it?

Perhaps you and your grown up can take it in turns to say a good describing word. A few of words that popped into my head whilst looking and listening to the story were silent, freeeeeezing and beautiful!




Thursday’s Maths Work


Let’s get warmed up mathematicians!


Children love counting up to 100! Here is a song that they will love that they join in with to count up to this ginormous number!


Here is a video that the children can interact with. It will help with spotting and finding numbers to 20.


Here is a catchy song about finding 1 more and 1 less. Follow the link!


Join in with the 'Ginger Bread Maths' slideshow! Mrs Cook will guide you through it with her voice! You'll find a link for the Powerpoint at the bottom of this page. 



Use the worksheets, there's link at the bottom of this page, to practise finding 1 more/1 less and if your child needs a stretch, practise finding 2 more/2 less. The sheets have a number line at the top to help them to move forward for 1 more and move back for 1 less.



Thursday's Topic Work


Today you are going to be scientists!


Here is an experiment that you can carry out with your grown ups. The instructions are below. 

Your first task is for you and your grown ups to read the experiment and then prepare your equipment. You'll need ice cold water (not frozen, but placed in a freezer for 3 hours) in a bottle, ice cubes, food colouring (if you like) and a deep dish or tray. 

When everything is ready you are ready to perform your experiment! Please send me some photos of your discoveries  grown ups! Have fun little investigators!


Phew! After all that science its time for a bit of daftyness!



Have fun singing these silly songs! Just follow the links below...


Thursday’s Physical Challenge


Fine motor exercises (small movements) are so important at this stage of the children’s development. Join in with these fun videos to exercise the hands and fingers (it’s a great listening activity too)…


A silly dance just for fun and to get your bodies moving!


Feeling sad crying - another video from the BBC series, that explores different feelings and emotions


Well that's it from me today bananas, well done for all of your trying today. I'll be back tomorrow with more learning fun!
