Nursery

There is an activity for your child to complete in each of the seven areas of learning. These activities are designed to be done together as a family. While you work together, give your child lots of opportunities for conversation so they can develop their language and learn new words and phrases.

If you do not have a copy of the ‘Book of the Week’ at home to read to your child, then please click on the link where you will be directed to a YouTube video of someone reading the story. Watch this with your child first because the ‘Book of the Week’ is at the heart of every activity.

In addition to completing these activities please ensure that you read with your child every day. These strategies will further support you when reading with your child at home:

  • Talk about what’s happening in the book as you read it together by asking open questions, for example, “What do you think will happen next?”
  • Let you child choose what books they want to read – they’ll enjoy reading more if they feel involved.
  • Encourage your child to re-read their favourite books and poems. Re-reading helps to build fluency and confidence.
  • Encourage them to read lots of different types of texts – picture story books, books of rhymes, non-fiction books, children’s magazines, postcards and even menus!
  • Explain any words they don’t know, perhaps using pictures or objects.
  • Use reading to open up discussions about feelings “The monkey is sad. Do you ever feel sad? What makes you feel sad?”
  • Use your facial expressions, gesture, actions and vary the tone of your voice to help tell the story.
  • Encourage your child to act out the story with their toys and encourage them to start reading independently by suggesting they ‘read to teddy’.

If you do not have access to any specific resources that you need to complete the home learning (e.g. scissors or colouring pens) then please contact the school office and the teacher will make a pack for you.

Reception

Welcome to Reception’s Home Learning Page. Whilst your child is unable to attend school, below you will find the work they would have been doing in class.

There is an activity for your child to complete in each of the seven areas of learning. These activities are designed to be done together as a family. While you work together, give your child lots of opportunities for conversation so they can develop their language and learn new words and phrases.

If you do not have a copy of the ‘Book of the Week’ at home to read to your child, then please click on the link where you will be directed to a YouTube video of someone reading the story. Watch this with your child first because the ‘Book of the Week’ is at the heart of every activity.

At the Mayflower Federation we follow a maths scheme called ‘White Rose Maths’. The scheme helps children to develop their problem solving skills and mathematical talk. Click on the links to watch the lessons. Please watch the videos with your child and pause the video to give them time to answer the questions. Work together to complete the activities afterwards, your child will need support to read the explanations for how to complete the tasks.

In Reception children use phonics to help them to learn to read. The children learn 3 sounds a week. These may be individual letters or two/ three letters that make one sound (e.g. ‘oa’ in boat). There are video links to support you with how to say each of the sounds and also actions which will help the children to remember them. Please support your child by working through the phonics with them. Encourage them to sound out words by pointing to one letter at a time and saying the sounds out loud.

In addition to completing these activities please ensure that you read with your child every day. These strategies will further support you when reading with your child at home:

  • Talk about what’s happening in the book as you read it together by asking open questions, for example, “What do you think will happen next?”
  • Let you child choose what books they want to read – they’ll enjoy reading more if they feel involved.
  • Encourage your child to re-read their favourite books and poems. Re-reading helps to build fluency and confidence.
  • Encourage them to read lots of different types of texts – picture story books, books of rhymes, non-fiction books, children’s magazines, postcards and even menus!
  • Explain any words they don’t know, perhaps using pictures or objects.
  • Use reading to open up discussions about feelings “The monkey is sad. Do you ever feel sad? What makes you feel sad?”
  • Use your facial expressions, gesture, actions and vary the tone of your voice to help tell the story.
  • Encourage your child to act out the story with their toys and encourage them to start reading independently by suggesting they ‘read to teddy’.
  • When you come across a word or sentence in a book that your child could ‘sound out’ using their phonics, pause and point to the letters, encourage your child to say each sound and read the word.

If you do not have access to any specific resources that you need to complete the home learning (e.g. scissors or colouring pens) then please contact the school office and the teacher will make a pack for you.
