Reception

Dear Reception Parents,

We have provided you with some links to websites which will support your child’s learning in the event of self-isolation. We often use these websites in school to aid learning and therefore your child will be familiar with a lot of these resources already.

Maths:

Numberblocks - Series 1 and 2

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/b08bzfnh/numberblocks?seriesId=b08bzg8q

Numberblocks helps to deepen understanding of number and place value.

Topmarks Gingerbread Man game

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/learning-to-count/gingerbread-man-game

This game includes counting, matching and ordering numbers up to 5 and 10. Topmarks also has other great Maths games to explore.

Writing:

Topmarks Skywriter

http://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/skyWriter/index.html

This tool models correct letter formation for the children. We often follow the plane with our fingers before writing it down. Please click the ‘cursive’ box in the top left corner.

Phonics:

Phonics Play

https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/2

This website has some great games to help your child blend their sounds into words. We often play ‘Buried Treasure’ in class. Whichever games you choose to play, we would recommend setting them at Phase 2 or 3 phonics.

Physical Education:

Go Noodle

https://www.youtube.com/user/GoNoodleGames

Go Noodle is great for PE when stuck at home! The children’s favourites are Superheroes Unite and Dinosaur Stomp.

Thank you for using these. We hope they help.

Miss Walsh and Miss Burns
