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, 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. (Go Noodle) (Pirate remix – dough disco)


10:00 - 10:30: 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 ‘x’

Learning to blend – lesson 17


10:30 - 11:00: Morning break 


11:00 - 11:30: Maths 

Roll a dice twice, the first roll of the dice will tell you what colour objects to find and the second roll will tell you how many to find.

If you roll:

1 = red objects                            2 = blue objects              3 = yellow objects

4 = black objects                         5 = green objects            6 = pink objects

When you have collected 2 groups of objects, how many do you have altogether? Say your number sentence out loud. 4 add/plus 3 equals 7 altogether.

If you don’t have many different coloured objects at home you can either make your own small counters or you can count out dried pieces of pasta to match the number you have rolled on the dice.

Can you write the numeral to match how many objects you have in each group?

For an extra challenge you could try writing your number sentence. 4 + 3 = 7.


11:30 – 12:00: Skills – Fine Motor Skills

Follow these instructions to make a paper chain?

You will need: Paper, scissors and glue or tape.

Cut paper into strips

Take one strip of paper and curl around so the two ends meet then stick them together.

Put another strip through the middle then curl around so the ends meet and stick together.

Repeat until you are happy with the length of the chain.

You could also decorate your paper chain.


12:00 – 1:00: Lunch


Afternoon Lesson

You could also use the example below to draw a picture in each jar.


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)

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.
