Can I listen to the story, pausing it throughout to discuss what is happening in the story?

Using the images in the activity attached. Can I talk through the story? (You might want to get props to help you retell the story too, e.g. a little boy, tree, star, rocket.)

Can I read the first sentence of the story?

Can I write it out, chop it up into words, mix them up and order it again independently?


Maths – 

  • Counting Practice – 

Can I count to 100?

  • Consolidation – In Reception we need to revisit and rehearse all number facts to secure understanding.

Can I revisit the number 10? (See attached.)

Can I find the matching numbers to the amounts? (See attached - use your number cards.)

Can I watch this number blocks episode and help to spot the different patterns?

  • Spring Term 1 Consolidation

Topic Time

RE – We are thinking about our topic of gathering in RE.

Have a look at the pictures attached and see if you can discuss the questions together. They are all about people coming together at church to listen to God’s word and learn all about his teachings.
