June 3rd - #30DaysWild โ€“ Whole School Challenge 3 ๐ŸŒงโ˜”๏ธ

Date: 3rd Jun 2020 @ 8:01am

As you know this month our school is going WILD! Here’s today’s challenge. I found this challenge on the free 30 Days Wild app. You can download it on the App Store or Google Play Store.

Just because it’s raining out there it doesn’t mean you can’t go wild! Get your Peppa on and pull on some wellies to dance in the rain.

Send your photos or short videos in and I'll put them up on our school blog 

PLEASE BE CAREFUL and make sure you complete the challenges with an adult.

Wednesday 3rd June - Maths

Date: 3rd Jun 2020 @ 7:20am

Good Morning Reception – Happy Wednesday! We are already halfway through the week! Can you believe it?!

Let’s warm up for our maths learning today by listening to some maths songs below and taking part in today’s fluent-in-five!  

That one was little bit tricky! How did you do?

Today in our maths learning, we are going to be focusing on counting one less and subtraction/taking away!

Let’s begin by counting backwards from 20! Ready… 20, 19, 18…..

Now try this with an adult at home..  Count backwards from 20 saying one less in turns. E.g Adults begin with 20, children say 19, adult say 18, etc…

Great! Do you feel ready for more subtraction learning? Let’s begin with our ‘Subtraction with Pirates’ song below! Yo-Ho!

Let’s help Pirate Pete with his subtraction!


Pirate the Pete has 4 chests full of treasure.

He uses 1 chest of treasure to buy a ship.

How many does he have left?


1……2……3! Pirate Pete has 3 chests left!

How can we write this as a number sentence?

4 – 1 = 3

Fantastic!  Give yourselves a pat on the back if you got it right! J Let’s try the next one!

5 treasure maps are made for a journey.

1 map is stolen!

How many maps are left?

How can we write this as a number sentence?

3 Compasses are found by Sarah the swashbuckler.

2 of them are broken, so she throws them into the sea!

How many does she have left?

Can you work it out? Write it as a number sentence!

Make sure you email in your answers or pictures of your work to! I can’t wait to hear from you! J Good luck!

I have also a ‘Pirate Subtraction up to 10 Worksheet’ below if you would like some extra learning!

Wednesday 3rd June Reading

Date: 3rd Jun 2020 @ 6:50am

Good Morning Reception,


Here are the answer’s to yesterday’s ‘Sentence of the Day…’

The small dog had lots of fur on his back.


Today’s sentence of the day is…

can yoo pass the broan paint.


Start by playing one word about the story ’10 Little Pirates.’ How many different words can you think of from the story in 1 minute? Listen to the story again from yesterday’s writing blog if you need to.

Today I would like you to practise your reading skills. I want you to read some words or sentences about pirates. Remember to use your segmenting and blending skills. Also don’t forget the tricky words that you should now be reading confidently. After you have read each word or sentence, can you draw or match to a picture? 


Mrs Iqbal and Mrs Cooper’s Phonic groups – Practise reading the sentences and draw a picture to match the sentence.


Miss William’s and Miss Cogger’s Phonic groups – Practise reading the words and match to the correct picture.

Wednesday 3rd June Phonics

Date: 3rd Jun 2020 @ 6:43am

Good Morning Reception,

Let’s start our phonics today by recapping Phase 3 tricky words and the new tricky words from Phase 4.

Play fastest finger first. Your grown up will say a tricky word and see who finds it the fastest.

Play quick write. Your grown up will say a tricky word and you must write it without looking at the words.


Today we are going to learn a new sound called ‘ow’ think of the word ‘cow’ for this sound. Watch the video at the bottom of this blog where I am teaching you all about this sound.

Here are today’s practise and apply activities, which one will you choose?

Activity 1 – Play ‘ow’ sound roll and read.


Activity 2 – Make a word and use it. Choose a ‘ow’ word and read it. Then write the word and draw a picture of that ‘ow’ word and finally write a sentence using that word.


Activity 3 – Read the ‘ow’ sound story


Activity 4 – Play splat the ‘ow’ word. Find something to use as a splatter, make sure it is safe and check with your grown up. Write some of the ‘ow’ words on scraps of paper and lay them down on the floor inside or outside. Your grown up will say the word and you must splat it.  You can also use the ow words from activity 2.

Treasure Chest Craft

Date: 2nd Jun 2020 @ 9:15am

Arrrgh… hearties!

Now that we are learning about pirates in reception, I thought it would be a great idea if we make a craft linked to our new topic…. And what’s a pirate without their treasure!?

Today we are going to be making… A Pirate Treasure Chest!
