Welcome to Reception Class RH
Welcome to our Home Learning Page
Welcome to RH,
I hope you have had a good first week at home.
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 over the next few weeks. I will be adding new things to this page regularly so keep visiting our website.
I would love to see what you have written and any pictures you may have drawn. Email me your creations: EYFS@hogarth.essex.sch.uk
Keep safe & have fun!
?? Our Big Question ??
We will have a 'big question' each week to get us thinking! Explain what you think the answer may be to your family and carers. Why do you think this? Remember to speak in full sentences when sharing your ideas.
'If you could be a Superhero, what would your special power be? and why?'
Can you work out this riddle? What could you be? why do you think this?
I have soft fur.
I hop in bushes.
I wiggle my little nose
and flop my great big ears.
What am I?
English Task of the Week

Use this picture to answer the questions provided. Every day, the challenges will change, and different images will appear. Try to make up your own stories and draw pictures about what you think might happen next.
Keep a diary to describe how you are spending your time at home. Remember to use your phonic sounds and your key words to help you to write your words and sentences.
Read ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’ (you can find a version on Youtube if you don't have one at home). Ask your child to tell you the story and talk about the sizes of the billy goats (small, medium and large).
Can you find some things that are small, medium and large (eg. small teddy, medium sized teddy and large teddy) and put them in order?
You can write, draw or use photos – have fun!
Understanding the World
One of our class books this term is 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff.’ In the story there is a bridge that the three billy goats need to cross to reach the luscious green meadows on the further bank. Find out more about bridges by talking about them with an adult or researching them in books or on the computer. You may wish to look at bridges in a variety of contexts: bridges over roads, railways and water; bridges that carry people, vehicles, trains or water. Talk about how the bridges have been made. What materials have been used? Design and make your own model of a bridge for the three billy goats. You can choose how to make your bridge for example, lego, paper mache or paint.
Think about different ways that the Three Billy Goats Gruff could have crossed the bridge. They could have ran, marched, tip toed, jumped… Can you think of any other ways to travel? Practice moving in each of these different ways.
Here are some activities you can do with your families:
