Home Learning - Day 4

Welcome to day 4. 

Good Morning Reception, 

Here are your challenges for home learning today: 


Todays sound is ‘x’. 

You say: ‘x’ 

They say ‘x’ 


You say ‘x – x – x – exercise’ 

They say ‘x – x – x – exercise’ 

Show them the picture of the Read Write Inc ‘x’ (see blog post picture. You can also find this on your Chilton Handwriting Patter sheet.) Tell your child the patter ‘down the worm, up the work, down the worm, up the worm.’ Have your child practice writing it in the air. Now they can practice writing a line of ‘x’s on their writing sheet. We recap 2 handwriting patters every day. Today our recap sounds are ‘s’ and ‘t’. Again, please refer to your handwriting patter sheet. Now it is time to practice oral blending. 

You say ‘b’ ‘o’ ‘x’. 

They say ‘box’. 

You say ‘b’ ‘o’ ‘x’ ‘box’ 

They say ‘b’ ‘o’ ‘x’ ‘box’ 

Repeat with the words ‘fox’ and ‘six’. 

Now they can practice writing those words onto the yellow lines. 

Please see your home learning resource pack for the handwriting patters, sounds and phrases and red words. 

Don't forget to read your book or access some of the online reading links. 

We follow the Read Write Inc scheme of work from Ruth Miskin. RWI are making speed sound videos which are available for 2 hours every day from 9.30. This would be a great way of starting your phonics lesson. Please see link - 

Maths: For maths today, we would like you to explore capacity by filling and emptying different containers with water/sand or rice. Please encourage your child to use the language linked to capacity, e.g. full, empty, half full, nearly empty and nearly full. 

Challenge: Can you complete the capacity activities in your home learning pack? 



Today in topic, we would like your child to design their own superhero, including; their superheroes name, a costume and their powers. 

Challenge: Can you write a simple sentence explaining what your superhero can do? 

Other activities you may want to include in your day: Phonics Play- - A fantastic website which has become free during this time.
