Daily Timetable and Suggested Learning

 Learning in Reception is very practical and happens in short bursts.  Children can only sit and listen for a short amount of time.  The suggested timetable below will give you an idea of how you can structure your day with your Reception child.  Try to give them lots of time to play and learn for themselves alongside sitting to work on formal tasks.   Some time spent doing exercise or dancing every day will help to keep your child healthy and will help with their mental well-being.  Try to go out for a walk if possible or try some of the activities suggested below.  If they have siblings, this could be a family activity!  Try to limit times spent playing on screens and watching TV as these can have the opposite effect and make children grumpy.  1 hour screen time is more than enough every day.  Try to supervise screen time as it is very easy to click on inappropriate links.  Some suggestions of appropriate apps are given on this page.  Above all try to make learning fun and give your child lots of praise for their efforts.

As you can see from the Maths home learning challenges that have been sent home in your packs, Maths can be very practical.  You can show your child a skill using items from around the house.  No fancy equipment is needed.  Normal everyday activities can be used to develop Maths skills:

  • helping with cooking/baking by counting ingredients/using the scales to weigh the flour etc
  • counting toys and using them to add or take away
  • creating patterns using everyday objects such as knives and forks
  • searching for shapes around the house - tins in the cupboard which are cylinders, cube  and cuboid shaped boxes, fruit that is a sphere shape

Series 1, 2 and 3 are all fantastic for Reception children.

A good app for developing your child's reading skills is Teach Your Monster to Read.  This is free at the moment so download it quickly!  If you child is on Phase 2 select 1- First steps.  If your child is on Phase 3 or 4 select 2 - Fun with Words.  This is also free to play online on a tablet or personal computer by clicking on the image above.

High Frequency words and Tricky words

 It is important to continue to practise the key words that were sent home in the blue book every day until your child can read them without having to say the sounds.  They should be able to read them on sight.  If they can, click on the link below to download the next set.  Try to only add one new set of 5 each time and keep going back to previously learnt words.  If your child is confident reading Phase 2, 3 and 4 words, they can then learn to spell them!  Again, choose 5 at a time and practise spelling for 5 minutes every day.
