Reception: Mrs Ramsden's and Miss Jones's Classes 2020 - 2021

Mrs Ramsden

We are putting all the teddy bears picnic work into files so please enjoy at home. Have a lovely Summer!

We have put some work in the files below for your children to help keep them busy and practising their writing and number work. The maths problems can be done practically if you don't have a printer and any writing just make sure the children have wide lines to write on.

Wednesday additional work: In files there are 3 documents starting 'don't hog the hedge'. One is a story the children can listen to you read then draw a picture and write some sentences about, another is a guess who powerpoint and the final one is addition. When adding a 2 digit number to a 1 digit number (eg 14.+ 5) they will need to get out something to support their counting like lego pieces.

Thursday -  Look at the photos of British wild animals and discuss features of the animals. Do they have 2 legs or 4. Do they have a tail, is it long or short, do they have fur or feathers. Pick an animal to write about. Remember finger spaces and use your phonics. You can write on lined paper and draw a picture of your animal. Make sure you draw wide lines on a piece of paper for your child as this will help their handwriting. 

Do a few(3 0r 4) of the problems from the maths booklet. They can be done practically if you can't print off the booklet.

Reading at home

 Reading books will be sent home on a Monday and will need to be brought back to school on Fridays. The Oxford Owl website has a brilliant range of levelled books that you can use to read with your child when you have no reading books at home. The book colour they read at home is one below their school colour. This shouldn't be a challenging read as it should consolidate their learning so far.  As they progress, a little bit of challenge on a book is OK as long as they are still engaged. It is not just about reading the words though, they need to understand what they have read so ask them questions about each page they read , eg, what did the cat sit on? Why did the boy do that?

Children progress at different rates in their own time so try not to compare your child to anyone else. 



Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday. Your child needs to bring a PE kit in a drawstring bag as we do not have room for rucksacks on our pegs.  PE kits consists of white shorts, blue school T-shirt and pumps or trainers, but please try to avoid lace up trainers unless your child is already able to tie them independently. If it is cooler your child can also wear their school jumper and navy or black leggings or joggers.  

Your child will need:

A water bottle will need to be brought to school everyday filled with water only. We are unable to provide cups at the moment.

Sunhat / raincoat depending on the weather and if it is sunny please put sun cream on your child before they come to school as we are unable to put it on for them. 

You can send a pair of wellies into school which can stay on our wellie rack if you would like to. Please make sure these are named. If you don't have spare wellies then please ensure on wet days your child comes to school in wellies as we try to go outside everyday and wellies allow the children more freedom to play when it's wet. 


Please label every item of uniform your child comes to school in, especially cardigans and jumpers and check regularly as they often fade in the wash if it has been written on in pen. Please include coats and shoes in your labeling as the children often have the same ones as a friends.
