Wednesday 13th January

Good morning Reception 1 families! Are you ready for Wednesday's home learning? Lets get started.



Listen to the story called The Girl Who Went to the Arctic. Can you write a list of the animals that she met? Think carefully about the sounds you can hear in the words and use the sound mats to help you write those sounds down.


Today I would like you to watch and listen to the Tricky Word’s Song. It introduces the tricky words, I, the, to, go, no, he, she, we. You can write these words on to pieces of paper and see if your child begins to recognise any. You can practise these words anytime.

If your child can already read these words, please choose a couple of the words and ask your child to write a sentence containing each of the words.

I am not expecting the children to learn them today. You can’t sound out the tricky words (TW) like the high frequency words (HFW), therefore in time your child will need to learn to recognise them. As it is an animated song I would like you to revisit this song with your child over the next few weeks as it is a fun way to help them learn these tricky words.

Warm up – Sing a number rhyme, 10 green bottles, 1,2, 3, 4, 5 once I caught a fish alive, you can choose. Then ask your child to tell you what number comes after/before the number that you say. Choose numbers that you know your child can recognise.

Please complete the challenge below.



Have a look to see if you have a cardboard tube – an empty toilet roll or kitchen roll tube. If you don’t have one you can role a piece of paper into a tube shape and stick together with sticky tape. I would your child to draw funny face on the tube and then snip the top of the tube with scissors to create hair. Have a look at the picture below for some ideas.

We hope you have enjoyed today's home learning. Keep going - you and your grown-ups are doing a great job!

Time to relax now and enjoy a story told by Miss Edwards.

Please check in again tomorrow.

Take care and keep smiling
