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. (Goldilocks workout)


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 ‘e’

Learning to blend – lesson 8 


11:00 -11:30 Maths 

Hide a teddy somewhere in the house and then see how long it takes to find Baby Bear. Can you beat your time? Take turns to find the bear. Can you describe where you found the bear using the positional language from yesterday?

If you have a stop watch or a timer (this could be on a phone) you can see how it long it takes for the bear to be found and see if you can do it quicker next time.

Positional language clues could also be used.


11:30– 12:00: Skills 

You could also use beads.


12:00– 1:00: Lunch


Afternoon Lesson 


1.00 -1.45: Creative Arts & Design

Baby Bear loves to sleep in bed with his favourite teddy bear. Do you have a favourite teddy bear?

Draw or paint a picture of your teddy bear? Why is it your favourite bear?


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.
