Reception Home Learning w/b Monday 18th May

Spread the love

Remember all the homework suggestions are optional. You can do as little or as much as you like. Each week’s homework mirrors the type of activities we would be covering in class. We also encourage you whenever possible to keep up with reading, handwriting practice, phonics and basic number such as counting, recognising and ordering numbers to 20. We understand parents may still be working or caring for other family members and may have limited time so please don’t feel under pressure. The most important thing is that you and your families stay safe and well. If you have any questions or if we can be of any help with home learning please do get in touch via the blog enquiries page or through tapestry, which we check on a regular basis.

Wow! You have all been so busy. We are very impressed with all the learning that has been shared with us so far. Please keep it coming, it is so lovely to still be a part of your learning journey!

This week is all about Minibeasts!

But before you start, let’s refresh your memory on how to stay safe online. Talk about online safety with your adult or revisit the Think You Know website below.

Now the minibeast learning can begin!

Use this page to find out all about minibeasts!



Use this website to access free online ebooks.

Why not ask a grown up to record you reading a story and then post it on tapestry? We would love to have a story read to us!


Communication and Language:

On your daily walks, become a minibeast detective! What minibeasts can you see? How are they the same or different?

There will also be lots of minibeasts in your gardens and maybe even around your houses. Talk to your grown ups about what you find. You might also be able to trap some under a glass to get a closer look. Please be careful though, we wouldn’t want to hurt or scare them.



Have you been a minibeast detective? Why not write a diary about the minibeasts you have seen? You could also draw pictures and label them.

Do you have a favourite minibeast? Write a fact file about your favourite minibeast! Remember a non-fiction text has pictures, labels, facts and most importantly capital letters, finger spaces and full stops!

We all love a good story. Write a story based on some of the minibeasts you have seen. You might need to read some other minibeast stories to get some ideas. Here is one for you:

Don’t forget to share your writing on tapestry!



Junk Modelling is a very popular activity in the classroom. Why not use the recycling you have at home to create your own minibeast? Be creative and don’t forget to share your creations on tapestry.

We all love a sing and a dance. Listen to these songs:


Choose your favourite and come up with some dance moves. Don’t forget to show us on tapestry! We can’t wait to be taught some new moves.


Have a go at this game:

Caterpillar Ordering – An Ordering and Sequencing Game

Thank you so much, again, for your tapestry updates! Keep them coming!
