The ‘Remote Learning’ School Day for Reception - Wednesday

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)

Make a Slime Monster

Slowly pour 100ml of water into a bowl of 150g cornflour and mix.

Next, add food colouring of choice and mix.

Add googly eyes, encourage counting as they add eyes or beads.

Allow time to explore the texture, how does the monster feel?

What do you think might happen if we add another colour?

You could also add glitter/buttons/sequins/tissue paper etc for different textures/colours to explore.

How did you make your slime monster? Can you draw pictures to help someone else make their own slime monster? Can you label your instructions?

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.
