Reception Activity Update


Thank you for your continued support in these uncertain times. Please don’t hesitate to email me if you have any questions or need any support.

I have enjoyed looking at work which you have emailed to me. You can also upload work or take photos to put on Exxat if you so wish.

This week, I would like your children to share or read a book daily. Whilst reading or after reading the book, they can choose one of the following activities:

To predict the end of the story, to retell the story, to order the main events in the story, to describe a character in the story, to design their own front cover for the story, to write about their favourite part of the story or say why they enjoyed the story.

I also feel it is beneficial that your child takes part in daily handwriting and number formation sessions. These sessions need to be no more than 20 minutes.

I have uploaded a Math’s Easter Booklet to the App for you to download in the media section. Your children will enjoy these activities. Please do one activity per day. Continue to do practical math’s activities with your children and ensure they can recognise all numbers to 20.

Finally, type in the link below to access lots more free fun activities for your children.

Stay Safe, say a big  hello to your children for me and Happy Easter.

Miss Palmer.

Beach day

On Thursday 4th June Reception will be having a beach day.

Children will be able to come to school wearing beach clothes such as shorts, t-shirts and sun hats.  Please ensure that your child has sun cream on them before they come to school as we will be outside.

For our day at the Myton beach your child can bring a beach towel, bucket, spade and beach ball. Please ensure that their name is on any of these items.

We will also be having a few surprise treats!

Thank you

Who lives in a rock pool?

We have had a very busy and exciting topic this term. Our next topic is called ‘who lives in a rock pool?’ We will be learning all about rock pools and the different animals and plants we may find in them.

One of our first activities in this topic is to ‘make a rock pool in a jar’. In preparation for this activity over Easter please can you collect some of the following items for you child.

  • shells
  • rocks
  • pebbles
  • sea life creatures
  • star fish
  • a clear plastic container to put your rock pool into for example a jar
  • and any other items you can think of!

Please can you bring in these items in a named carrier bag for the first day back after Easter.

Thank you for your going support, we hope you have a lovely Easter.
