Hi Reception, are you awake and ready for today's learning? Before we start today we would like you to have a think about the temperature. Is it hot or cold today? How does that make you feel?
As usual, let's make a start by looking at your fantastic learning from yesterday:
Don't forget to send your work to our class email today: firstname.lastname@example.org
Today we thought we'd start with a song all about unicorns. It's got some very big dance moves, so make sure you're in a space!
Don't forget to have a look at our PE page for more fun activity ideas!
As usual, your three phonics sessions will be available on the Ruth Miskin YouTube channel at 9:30am. Please access these via the following link: https://www.youtube.com/c/RuthMiskinTrainingEdu/featured%C2%A0
For your last week of online RML lessons, why not have a look at some of the phonics activities and games on Education City or phonicsplay? Make sure to practise the sounds that you find the trickiest!
In our literacy lesson today, we are going to be looking at another one of the characters in our Farmer Duck story. We are going to be looking at the farmer! To start us off, let’s have a look at Barnaby Bear’s visit to a farm. He’s going to show us some of the jobs that farmers do every day:
I hope that you enjoyed finding out all about life on a farm! For your literacy learning today, I would like you to write about the jobs that Farmer Ellis does. I would like you to draw a picture of three of the jobs and write a description of what the farmer is doing. Have a look at my example below:
I have used a picture of the farmer collecting the eggs. I’m going to describe it using a sentence.
Your sentence could look like this:
Or you could extend it, so that it looks like this:
Have a look at my second sentence. Can you see that I have used a capital letter at the start of my sentence, finger spaces between my words, and a full stop at the end? I have also made sure to write on the line.
Don’t forget to clap out your sentences before you start to write them down and remember – please don’t worry about spellings! We love to see that you have listened to the sounds that you can hear in each word (e.g. ‘egg’ could look like ‘eg’).
If you wish to, you can print off the below worksheet to guide your writing:
For today’s learning we are going to practise counting to 10. First click on this song to practise singing numbers to 10. Let’s see if you can sing along!

You task today is to estimate, this means to make a guess based on what you already know. When you grab a handful of toys you know your hands can’t hold millions of toys so you can make a guess thinking about the size of your hands. Today we want you to use toys to make estimates, you can use Lego, pompoms, counters, cubes or a mixture of these. Below we have attached a worksheet, you could use this or make your own table to write down your estimates.
On Thursday it is a very exciting day - it's World Book Day! We're going to celebrate a little bit early, by having a think about our favourite books. Have a think about your favourite :
What's it called?
Who is the author?
Why is it your favourite?
We would like you to have a go at designing your own front cover for your favourite book today! You could use pens and pencils to draw your front cover, or collage it from other materials. Make sure why think about what should be on a front cover before you start!
If you wish to, you can use the worksheet below as a template:
We thought that we'd end today by sharing our favourite stories. Why not have a look and see which one you like the most?
