Reception Home Learning

HOME LEARNING ACTIVITIES
If your child is well, but needs to self-isolate for a period of time at home, a link will be sent to you with a 'Home Learning Overview' for the week along with access to our 'Google Drive' which contains appropriate resources for the current week as well as 'continuous resources' which can be used to support your child's learning at home at any point. 
A copy of the 'Weekly Overview' along with some continuous resources can also be found on this page.
A guide to 'Home Learning in Reception' can also be found below.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
CURRENT WEEK: HOME LEARNING OVERVIEW
GUIDE TO HOME LEARNING in RECEPTION
Reception Home Learning is a 5-page document, with detailed activities and linked resources:
  1. General Overview
  2. Phonics / Handwriting (Fine Motor Skills)
  3. Maths
  4. Carousel
  5. Rainbow Challenges (these are optional)
We suggest that you create a timetable for your day based around what works for you to include some adult / child focused time / independent play / family time and physical exercise – this will help you prioritise areas of home learning each day and create some routine for your child. 
Remember however that Reception learning is usually ‘play-based’ – make it fun and keep it varied. If your child is losing focus or enthusiasm, take a break or change activity. The planning is here to help you and your children to keep to some kind of ‘routine’ and ‘keep learning alive’. Some parents prefer this kind of structure whereas others may prefer to take the children’s lead a little more. There will be days when you will able to do more and some less, but we would suggest that each day (if your child is well) you try to find a little time to do some phonics, a bit of maths, some reading and at least one other activity or project with your child.

CONTINUOUS RESOURCES
To help support your phonics practice at home, we have created a ‘Phonics Menu’ ( see above) . This is a progressive document and aims to give you links to some popular phonics songs / a structure for revising known sounds (if your child is ready for them) and a choice of websites which you may choose to access for games and videos to support phonics. This gives you a choice of working on or offline depending on the resources you have available and the interests / attention levels that your child has. You do not have to access all the resources straight away, rather it is there for families who are looking for more guidance / new ideas. Phonics Packs (and work on Phonics Phase 2) will be introduced to Reception after October half term.
Similar to phonics, we have created a ‘Maths Menu’ (see above). This is another progressive document that gives you links to some popular maths songs / a structure for revising mathematical concepts and a choice of websites which you may choose to access for games and videos to support maths. This gives you a choice of working on or offline depending on the resources you have available and the interests / attention levels that your child has. You do not have to access all the resources straight away, rather it is there for families who are looking for more guidance / new ideas.
