Greenmount -

a Pathway to Success

Wednesday, 25th March

Good morning Reception. 

I hope that you enjoyed your activities yesterday and that you are all safe and well. 


I have included the reading words just in case you don't have them at home or are thirsty for more.  We learn the Pink words first, then the Red words, then the Yellow words and lastly Blue words.  Don't forget to keep going back over your old words so that you don't forget them!

Today's activities are:

For both Mrs Balmer’s/Miss Hathaway’s group and for Mrs Brennan’s/Mrs Carr’s group:  Please visit username: march20/password:home Click on ‘resources and then on phonic phase 3 and select ‘Flashcards Speed Trial’ for your daily phoneme revision activity.  Then see if you can sing the alphabet song with your Mummy or Daddy so that you can learn the order.  Lastly, as a daily activity you can go through your letters for their sound and name practise.
Then for practise of sounds learnt so far access the website: and read the comic 'lets go' together you might need a little help to sound out the longer words but give it a go.  If you want to read more comics by yourself or are finding 'let's go' a little tricky try the Phase 2 comics.

 Mrs Balmer’s/Miss Hathaway’s group: Yesterday you were introduced to the new phoneme 'er', today I would like you to practise reading the words: fern, her, kerb, farmer.  Can you have a try at spelling 'mermaid'?  Don't forget to split the word into 2 parts, 'mer'/'maid' so that you can hear all of the sounds.  Then can you practise handwriting the new sound 'er'-you could do this with chalks outside or paint or even in flour-don't forget your lead in 'e' and then join it to the 'r'.

Mrs Brennan’s/Mrs Carr’s group:
Please see that attached 'bl' blend activity to practise this new adjacent consonant cluster.


Mrs Balmer's/Hathaway's group: count 0 to 20 and 20-0 daily, go through your number flashcards cards(attached or make your own) to 20 and then see if you can put them in order-will they stretch right across the room?  Then practise the formation of the numbers 0, 1 and 2.  You can use the attached sheets or your own paper, use felt tips, or crayons, make them colourful.

Mrs Carr's/Mrs Brennan's group: Daily counting in 2's, 5's and 10's-how high can you go? Keep revising your number doubles and your bonds to ten-you could practise your bonds and writing them out using 10 bottle tops-paint inside of each the same colour e.g red so that they are all red on one side and the bottle top colour on the other, as you turn 1 over at a time you can make your sums to 10 e.g 0=10, 9=1, 8+2 etc...  if you don't have enough bottle tops just yet maybe use card circles made from a cereal box.  I have also attached number formation sheets for 11 and 12, you can either use these or use your own paper.

Have fun with your learning, Mrs Balmer
