Reception Class Home Learning Week Beginning 7th December 2020

A big hello from the Snaith Reception team, we hope that you are keeping safe and well and look forward to seeing you back in class soon.  We have getting excited about Advent and Christmas and will be learning all about the Nativity story in class this week.  Have fun completing the learning activities below 😊

We will be using our good concentrating skills to listen to the Nativity story by this week, listen to the story on the link below and ask your child top talk about the characters. 

Nativity Story - CBeebies - BBC

Can you draw a picture of the nativity scene and use your phonic knowledge to sound out and try to spell the names of the characters?

Can you print and cut up the sequencing pictures from the story that are included in the resources below.  Can you sort the pictures into the correct sequence and use words such as ‘beginning, middle and end’. 

We have previously created story maps in class, can you have a go at creating your own story map that retells the nativity story?

Phonics this week:


We have four new sounds for you to learn this week.  The guidance below is from the Read Write Inc website which helps to teach the children how to correctly pronounce speed sounds and how to write them.

In phonics we will review the speed sounds and red words we already know. These are: m, a, s, d, t, I, n, p, g, o, c, k, u, b, f, e, l, h, r, j, v, y, w, z and x

Red words: I, my, to, the, go

Our new sounds this week are .  Please complete one sound a day and revisit sounds all four sounds on Friday. You could play different phonics games such as finding objects around your home that begin with that sound. You could put all of the sounds onto post it notes and ask your child to retrieve the sound you shout out. Finally you could help your child write the sound in different ways, that could be in the air, using their finger, with water on the ground, using chalks or on a piece of paper.

Please continue to practise your letter formation at home.

Here are some words that can be ‘fred talked’ (sounded out) using the letter sounds covered this week.  Can your child hear the full word by blending the sounds together?  Perhaps they can write them as you fred talk them:

 sh-i-p     p-a-th    ch-i-p     qu-i-z    


This week we are learning all about the number 6. Please watch the following video below and complete the activities listed. 


Please find a powerpoint attached below to go through. 

Have you got any board games at home that use a dice? Can you take turn with an adult and count the dots to help you know how many spaces you need to move?

Please find attached below a worksheet to complete all about the number six. 

In class we have been practising addition to 10. Please have a go at completing the following game below.
