Reception home learning – Friday 20th November

Thursday 19th November | No comments yet


This week we have practised reading and writing the letter shapes for f and ff. Today we are going to practise our blending skills.

Can you join in with the jolly phonics song? Can you can spot ‘f’?

Practise writing ‘f.’ You could write it in the air, in glitter or some sand.

Can you read these words? Look for the digraph ‘ff’ first.

Practise reading the words and writing the diagraph ‘ff’. Use the phoneme frame to write ‘puff’. If you would like an additional challenge try to write a sentence which includes the word ‘puff’.

Parents: A phoneme frame is used to breakdown the letter sounds in each word. Therefore, for puff you will need to add ‘p’ to the first box, ‘u’ to the second box and ‘ff’ to the final box.


We have been looking at one more and one less this week. Can you find groups of objects and add one more or take one away to find the total? Find 10 objects and join in with the 10 green bottles song below. Every time a bottle falls you can take one object away and count how many you have left.

We have also been looking at number 8 and 9 this week.

Can you count out 8 or 9 objects? Can you represent 8 or 9 in different ways? You might draw 8 cars, or 9 pieces of fruit.


On Friday we usually have P.E. Today you could have a go at joining in with these exercises!
