The ‘Remote Learning’ School Day for Reception - Tuesday

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’. The children will require playdough for this activity, which we have provided in the home learning packs.


9.30 - 10:00 Physical Activity

Please see the 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. 

 Pre-recorded lesson Set 1 sound ‘o’

Learning to blend – lesson 2


11:00 -11:30  Maths 

Talk about subtraction/take-away when you’re eating. Count how many grapes/strawberries/etc you have and how the number goes down with every one you eat.

Can you create your own number line to 20. Encourage the children to form their numbers correctly. Practise counting to 20.

Hide different numbers and see if can work out which one is missing.


11:30– 12:00: Skills 

Practice zipping or buttoning your coat up. You could also try tying your laces.


12:00– 1:00: Lunch


Afternoon Lesson 

1.00-1.45: Expressive Arts & Design

One of the key skills in Reception is linked to playing in a group, extending and elaborating play ideas, e.g. building up a role-play activity with other children.  

Could you make and develop your own role play area such as a shop, a house, a train, a castle, a spaceship, a hairdresser and have fun playing in it with your child. Be a customer, a passenger, a knight, an astronaut.

You may wish to link this to the Winter and build an igloo, an indoor ice rink etc. There are lots of great ideas on Pinterest you may wish to use.

Resources you could possibly use:

Chairs, clothes airers, large boxes, small tables, blankets, towels, pegs, sheets, duvet covers, etc.


1:45-2.30– ‘Plan, Do, Review’ 

During this time we encourage the children to plan their own learning, they then carry out their task and we review their learning at the end of the session. (Child initiated learning)


2:30-3:00 - Reading Spine & Speaking and Listening Activities 

Children will log onto Teams and enter a live lesson with their teacher who will read a story to them and reflect on their day.
