Good morning Reception, I hope that you enjoyed your activities yesterday.


First go through your phoneme flashcards, letter names with their sounds and current reading words. (Full reading packs can be done at a different time in the day if you wish as these can take longer to do).

Phoneme revision:  Classroom secrets-please use your individual login details that were emailed to you before Easter:

Both groups: Page 7: oo, ar, or, ow picture drag and match game, alternatively or in addition to, Page 2 game 1 picture drag and match for single letter sound word blending.


Mrs Balmer’s/Miss Hathaway’s group:  Continuing with the phoneme ‘oi’, I have attached a ‘roll and read’ dice game that you can play or use as an idea for your learning. Don’t forget it has two letters but only one sound, so when sounding out words use ‘oi’ not ‘o’ ‘i’. 

Mrs Carr’s/Mrs Brennan’s group:  This week we will be continuing to work on the  ‘r’ family adjacent consonants or ‘clusters’: gr, br, cr, dr, fr, pr and tr.  Can you add two more pages to your booklet that you completed yesterday?  Can you make a page of pictures that start with ‘br’?  Can you write what your pictures are underneath?  Then try to do the same for ‘cr’.  Parents-you may need to offer up some suggestions that your child can draw and write, here are some if you are stuck for ideas:

Br: brown, brick, bread, broom

Cr: cream, cry, crown, cracker

Don’t forget that your child may write phonetically so they may spell ‘cry’ as ‘crigh’ etc.

Activity: Please repeat the activity from yesterday to practise the concept.  If you wish you could add to it by picking a number out of a box within 10 and then carrying on counting on from it up to 10 or 20. So for example if I picked out a ‘5’ I would say 5,6,7,8,9,10….  This is to practise counting on from any number and is a really good short activity to repeat whenever you can.

Mrs Carr’s/Mrs Brennan’s group:  If your child feels confident after yesterday’s recap then they can complete the attached addition sheet.  Please remind them to circle the biggest number and to put this in their head and to put the smaller number on their fingers.

Hope you are all safe and well, Mrs Balmer.
