Reception Blog – Week Beginning 14th September 2020

Hi everyone, hope you are all safe and well.  We hope you are all ready for your move to our Reception class and we can’t wait to get started with some fun and exciting learning. Here are some things to get you started. 


Name Writing

Please can you practice writing your name.  Make sure you have a capital letter at the beginning and try and get your letters to sit on the line.  If you can write your first name, why not try writing your second name too.

Sharing your favourite story

Choose your favourite storybook from home to share with your grown up.  Read the story together and talk about each picture.  Can your grown up ask you some questions like: Who are the characters in the story? Is there a good/bad character?  Where is the story set? E.g. A castle, The Woods.  What happens at the beginning of the story? What happens in the middle of the story? What happens at the end of the story?



Can you practice your counting starting from 0 to as far as you can go?  You could make your counting fun by counting how many jumps, hops, skips you can do.  You could also count the stairs in your house as you walk up and down them.

Recognising and ordering numbers

Can you recognise your numbers? Can you go on a number hunt around your house or on a walk outside? What numbers can you find? What number is on your front door? Can you write the numbers that you find on your number hunt?  Grown-ups could make you a set of number cards for you to place in the correct order.  What number comes first? What number will come next?


Practice your drawing skills

Who lives in your house?

Can you draw all of your family? Do you have any pets? What are your families’ names? Can your colour in your picture? What colour hair, eyes do you and your family have?

We really appreciate your continuing support.

Lots of Love

MRs Delap and Mrs Marley
