Reception Home Learning 

Reception learning is all about hands on, fun and practical activities, please try to make learning at home as enjoyable as possible, we have gathered lots of ideas for practical games you can play at home to support maths and reading. 

If you are isolating for 10 days this work is aimed at 10 days of learning your child would receive in class.

If you are unsure about any aspect of home learning please get in touch with your class teacher via Learning Book



In Reception during Spring 1 we are working on  Phase 3, for this we teach several sounds each week: please use the ideas below to help your child learn to recognise, write and use the sounds.
