Reception - Term 6 - Week 2

07 June 2020

Hello lovely Reception children and parents!

It was lovely to welcome some of you back to school this week and we look forward to spending more time with you over the next few weeks. 

When your child is not at school or if you have chosen not to send your child to school just yet then please complete the learning that we have set below.



Weekly phone calls

This week we will be calling all of the children who have decided to stay at home rather then come to school. This will give us a chance to say hello and check that everything is ok. We will be making these calls on Wedesday between 11 and 4 pm. However if you have any questions or concerns and would like to speak to us before, please phone the office and leave a message or send us an email to the school's email address: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Read the sentences from the story. Underline the digraphs and trigraphs and circle tricky words as shown in the example. Use your robot arms to read the words. Read each sentence again to practise. Point to each word. Draw a line to the matching picture.

You may need to watch the story again to help you.

(see photo below).

Each player gets to spin the bottle 2 times. They then add their 2 numbers together.

Whoever gets the most wins!
