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’. 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. (Penguin dance) (Penguin Yoga) 


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 ‘c’

Learning to blend – lesson 3


11:00 -11:30: Maths 

Place a homemade number line to 20 in front of each player and a pile of beans in the middle, between the players. Take turns to roll a dice. Count the dots on the dice. Take that many beans, put them in your own pile and move your counter along the number line. For example, if you roll a 5, move the counter along to number 5. When you roll the dice for the second time, take more beans and count how many you now have. Move the counter to that number. The first to 20 is the winner.


11:30– 12:00: Skills 

Use your listening skills to play ‘Simon Says’ with someone in your house. How many things can you do before Simon tricks you?


12:00– 1:00: Lunch


Afternoon Lesson 

1.00 -1.45: Understanding the World

 Use your role play area this afternoon. Encourage your child to plan their own learning before they go off to explore their role play area. Can you reflect on their learning at the end of the afternoon? What did they enjoy doing? Is there anything they would like to add to the role play area? Add paper, pencils, books etc to encourage writing skills. 


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.
