Reception Home Learning
Use the document below to look at different patterns with your child. Ask your child to copy these patterns into their home learning book. They might need to watch you do it first. Encourage them to hold their pencil correctly but don’t worry if they are not yet able to do this, the muscles in their hands are still developing. Activities at home such as fastening buttons, opening packets and zipping up their jackets can help develop these muscles.
Shape, Space and Measure: This week we are using the words ‘tall’ and ‘small’ to compare the height of objects and people. Take a walk around the house or garden with your child, can they find something that is taller than them? Smaller than them? Can they tell you in a sentence. For example “I am taller than the flower” “I am smaller than the door”. Help them to draw pictures of 2 things that are taller than them on one page in their book and 2 things that are smaller than them on another page.
Number: We have been practising counting very carefully and then matching an amount to the correct number. The lesson below will help your child learn to count objects reliably and to practise forming numbers.
Below is a game that also helps with matching numeral to quantity:
Music: Watch the lesson below to help your child to explore their voice and the different sounds it can make, all they need is their ‘action hands’, ‘singing voice’, a spoon and a toy or teddy.
