Home learning Week 2


Reception class home learning – wb 11th January 2021.


English – Read, Write, Inc.

This week there will be a mixture of following the Ruth Miskin sessions with the ‘Ditty’ sheets as last week and Teams sessions.  The schedule will show you which days.


Maths – Counting and recognising numbers.  Finding one more.

Suggested Maths activities this week:

There will be a Teams session where I will teach the children about finding one more.  You then have the choice after the session whether to complete the ‘Space’ themed finding one more sheet, or the suggested practical home activities (or both!).  An extension to the activity would be to extend to numbers to 20 and beyond.  Challenge your child to write these numbers?

For the other suggested Maths session, watch some episodes of ‘Number Blocks’.  Just choose a number which your child struggles to recognise or to form correctly and type that number alongside ‘Number Blocks’ in a google search e.g. ‘Number Blocks number 5’.  After watching some of the episodes, you can play one of the counting games on Education City.  Support activities for children who struggle with a particular number could be to work on the home learning number challenges:

An extension could be to play the Education City game working with numbers to 20,

Further activities for the week:

Further suggestions (should you wish to use them) will be included on the weekly schedule.

Please remember that I do not intend that you will do all of the activities, they are a suggestion.  You know your child best and what they can cope with.


Stay safe everyone.
