Fine Motor

We practise our fine motor skills every morning to help to develop our muscles in our hands and to get us ready for writing. 

Today I would like you to practise writing your name. You could use cotton buds and paint to dot over your name first, if you'd like to! Please see photo below for example. 

Alternatively, you could choose your own activity from the 'Fine motor skills at home' document on the Reception Remote Learning page. 


Today's new sound is 'g', like in goat. It is a hard sound at the back of your throat. 

Please watch today's video. Can you join in? Which sounds can you remember?
You can watch Geraldine the Giraffe again, then have a go at the 'g' sheet I below.

I have also created a game that you could play at home. Using the sheet below, cut the sounds and pictures up individually. Hide the letters around the house/room/garden and place the pictures on the floor. Can you find the letters and match them to the initial sound picture?

If you do not have access to a printer- please do not worry! You could play this game by writing the sounds on scraps of paper and hide them around the house! 

Keep these cards as we may use them for a game tomorrow!

Physical activity

It's really important to keep active, even when you're at home. During this time you can do any activity you would like to at home- go for a walk, play in the garden, do some dancing at home... anything you like!

If you would like some ideas, have a look at the videos on the link below. 


Today we are continuing our work with patterns. We are working on being able to continue a repeating pattern, and creating our own using household items. 

Join the call to see some examples. 


In R.E. we have been talking about God's world and everything in it. Today I would like you to think about how we can look after God's world. Have a look at the powerpoint below, then draw a picture of something we can do to look after God's world. Take your time with the picture and please keep it and bring it to school when we go back so I can use them on our display!
