Welcome to Reception Class RH



Welcome to our Home Learning Page 


Hello RH, 


I hope you are all safe and well. This week our learning is based on the book 'Walking through the Jungle' by Julie Lacome. I hope you enjoy the activities that I've planned for you- I would love to see examples of your work on our Google Classroom or you can email me too at 

Please remember that our Google Classroom is open from Monday- Friday between 9:00am-4:30pm. Thank you for always remembering to be polite and considerate towards each others feelings, when using Google Classroom. 


Parents: Don't worry too much if learning from home is not quite going as you expected, it is a big change for everyone and it can be hard if parents and siblings have to work from home too. Try to establish a simple but flexible routine that is easily changed when needed.  It is important to get some fresh air and try and do some reading each day. There are lots of maths and phonics activities, as well as online books to read on Activelearn. I am not expecting the children to do these all at once, so this should keep you going until the summer holidays. 


Keep safe and have fun! 

Mrs McIntosh 



Suggested Daily Timetable Summer Term



Learning Week 5, 29th June 2020 



Book of the Week: 

Walking through the Jungle by Julie Lacome



Imagine that you were walking through the jungle. Please use the worksheet to write about some of the animals that you might see. 




This week our maths unit is money. We would like the children to continue to recognise coins and use language related to money, in practical contexts. I have uploaded some sheets for you to have a go at too. It's also always a great idea to use money in a practical context when you go shopping, I know this is difficult at the moment, so you could role play shops instead. 


The maths vocabulary we would like you to focus on is: 


money, coin, penny, pence, pound, price, cost, buy, sell, spend, spent, pay. 



Have a look at the jungle challenge sheet and have a go at some of these challenges. I would love to see your work via email or uploaded onto our google classroom. 

Book List: Summer 2 


Our topic for this half term is Animals! Our learning will be based around the following books:


What the Ladybird Heard- Julia Donaldson (Week 1)

Dear Zoo - Rod Campbell (Weeks 3 and 4)

Walking Through the Jungle- Julie Lacome (Weeks 5 and 6)

Ideas for Choosing Time 

Please try to have some choosing time outside each day so that you get some fresh air. You do not have to complete all of these activities and if you have your own ideas that you would prefer to do then that is completely acceptable for choosing time but I do hope that you will find this list useful.
