The ‘Remote Learning’ School Day for Reception – Thursday – World Book Day – Dress Up Day!
In order to keep the day as familiar as possible for children, we will be following the same timetable during each day of remote learning:
9.00 - 9.30: Registration
Please log onto teams and enter a live lesson with your teacher who will take the register. The daily timetable will then be shared with the children followed by Dough Disco, scavenger hunt, word of the day and ‘hold a sentence’.  
9.30 - 10:00: Physical Activity
Please see activity link below. We appreciate that you may also want to go outdoors for your daily exercise. (Cosmic Yoga)

11:00 – 12:00: World Book Day

What is your favourite story? Find your favourite book at home.

You can choose to:

  • Draw a picture of your favourite character. Label your picture and think of a sentence that you can practise saying and then have a go at writing it using your Fred Sounds. “He is a big troll.”
  • Make your own story book. Who would be the characters? Where would the story be set? Can you tell your story to your grown up? We would love to see a video of your own story.
  • Have a go at the book scavenger hunt. Using the story books, you have at home, hunt for the different things on the list. List will be on teams.
