Welcome back for the Spring Term! 

We will be using traditional tales as our base for the learning this term, starting with the gingerbread man. 

Welcome to the spring term in Reception. We know that it may be different to how we expected it to be but we will see you soon, even if it is virtually for now.

 

Parents and Carers, the timetable below includes all of the learning that we have set for the children in Reception this week. All of the resources are grouped into subjects with links and worksheets as needed. 

Please aim to complete at least 3-4 pieces of learning a day. We know that many of you will be juggling working from home as well as home learning so this learning can be completed across the week to fit around your schedule.

To enable us to celebrate learning and provide feedback we ask that you upload photos of completed learning to Tapestry each week.

Please do not hesitate to contact us by emailing info@stepeter-stpaul.surrey.sch.uk if you would like any further support with learning and/or additional resources such as exercise books or paper copies of worksheets provided.

We will be contacting you routinely to 'check in' and our Family Wellbeing Lead, Linda Smith, will also be available to offer additional support and advice.

Using card or paper, make your own number cards from 0 to 20.

 

Practice mixing them up and ordering them. Can you explain where each number should go and why?

(ie because 2 is one less than 3)

 

Using a numberline 0-20, play ‘Guess my number’ using the sentence:

My number is one MORE then 11 and one LESS than 13. Whats my number?

 

Go through the order of the numbers 0-20 and make sure your child knows what the numbers are called. Take away a number and ask them to describe it by scaffolding their answers - What number have I taken away? Child: “13” “You can see that 13 is one less than … and one more than …”

 

Show a number line from 10 to 20 with numicons. Explain that when we write teen numbers, though we use a ‘1’ it is actually a 10, and demonstrate this by showing the numbers with the relevant numicon.
