Good afternoon Reception children.  Thank you for all the emails today with details about your home learning.  I apologise to those of you who have tried to access Mathletics today.  Unfortunately, access to this site for Reception children is now not available but we have managed to reinstate Mathseeds so I will add work there for tomorrow.

Take care everyone.  Mrs Ewens.

Wow, fabulous maths work Oliver!

Good morning Reception Class.  I hope that you have all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed spending time outdoors with your family.  We have a new topic for this week which is ‘A Trio of Traditional Tales’.  I think you are going to love the work this week and I can’t wait to see how you get on with it!

Don’t forget to get active with Joe Wicks and also Practice the song of the week from Sing Up.


Watch and enjoy The Gingerbread Man, read by Julie Walters: Listen and watch again. Discuss the story with your child to check their understanding, e.g. Who baked the gingerbread man? What did the gingerbread man shout each time he escaped from someone? How did the sly old fox trick the gingerbread man? Ask your child to write a list of the people and animals that the gingerbread man escaped from. You could draw pictures of them if you wish. Encourage your child to use their phonics to help them sound out and spell the words.



I have assigned work for you to complete on Mathletics.  If you don’t have your log in details, then please contact me.

I have also attached Number of the Day.


How else could the Ginerbread Man have got across the river?  Design or build your own ideas!
