The ‘Remote Learning’ School Day for Reception - Friday

In order to keep the day as familiar as possible for children, we will be following the same timetable during each day of remote learning:


9.00 - 9.30: Registration

Please log onto teams and enter a live lesson with your teacher who will take the register. The daily timetable will then be shared with the children followed by Dough Disco, scavenger hunt, word of the day and ‘hold a sentence’.  


9.30 - 10:00: Physical Activity

Please see activity link below. We appreciate that you may also want to go outdoors for your daily exercise. (Joe Wicks)


10:00 - 10:30: Morning break 


10:30 - 11:00: RWI

The following link will take you straight to the lesson. Once your child has watched the video, could you encourage your child to practise the new sound.

People and Communities - Chinese New Year

Use the PowerPoint and find out more about Chinese New Year.

Have you tried Chinese food before? What have you tried and what is your favourite?

Create a Chinese restaurant at home. What would you have on your menu?

Can you have a go at writing the menu using your Fred sounds? How much will your food cost at the restaurant? You could use the Chinese numbers you have been using in maths to show the price of each item.

Can you make a Chinese paper lantern to decorate your restaurant?
