Hi Reception,

We hope you have had a lovely half term and enjoyed the fantastic weather that we have had. It is the start of a brand new week, and a brand new topic. We are very excited about this one, we really hope that you will enjoy it.

It is Superheroes!! 

As always you will find the four Rainbow challenges below as well as a list of additional activiites if you would like to have a go at them. We have also updated Education City and included a range of new games. We know that learning at home isn't always easy so as always just try and do what you can. If you can't do anything else remember to: 

  • read for 15 minutes everyday 
  • spend 10 minutes practicing reading and writing a few of your phonics sounds
  • practice reading your tricky word cards (there is a list below if you need any more) 

It also really important that you make time to play in the garden, bake, complete crafts, build things, play board games, explore and any other activities that you enjoy. Making sure you are feeling happy and settled is so important and doing activities you love will help with that. 

Please keep asking your Mums and Dads to send us pictures of what you get up to over the week, they really are the highlight of our week. We really miss seeing you all so seeing these make us really happy.  They can either be uploaded to Learning Book or emailed to us.

Don't forget if you have completed your  paper pack and would like more, please let us know and we can either post out a new one or arrange for you to collect it from school. If you also require new reading books, again let us know and we can sort this out for you. 

As always we will be uploading videos to our YouTube channel throughout the week, this includes a story on Monday and our Green Rainbow challenge with Miss Robinson on Tuesday. 

Have a great week Reception being Superheroes, we wonder who you will be?

Rainbow Challenges

Yellow: Phonics

Below you will find a sheet that has some special superhero words, ask an adult to read them to you one at a time. Use your Fred Fingers to help you work out what sounds you need. How many words can you spell correctly?


Red: Writing 

Monday's story is all about a special Superhero who needs a little help. If you think you can help, watch the story carefully and listen to Mrs Swindley's explanation and you'll be able to complete your red challenge. 

As always we have added a sheet below that can be used to complete the task, however this task can also be completed on plain paper if you prefer.  

 Don't forget to try your best to use your cursive handwriting. 

Blue: Maths  

 Roll, add and colour. Below we have added a sheet which will allow the children to practice their adding skills.  Use two dice and have lots finding the totals. 

If you are unable to print the sheet, write the numbers onto pieces of card or paper. Whoever creates the amount on a card by adding the two dice together keeps it. Whoever has the most cards at the end wins the game. 


Green: Creative 

Watch Tuesday's Youtube Video and create something exciting with Miss Robinson
