            Remote Learning Page



Welcome to Reception's Learning Page.  Each week on Tapestry you will recieve a weekly challenge for you to enjoy with your child. Once completed don't forget to upload to Tapestry for the class to share. The children love to talk about and share what they have been doing.


If you are currently working at home or just want some extra home learning, you will find everything you need here or on Tapestry. If you have any problems accessing Tapestry please let your teacher know by emailing



Every day count up to the biggest number you can count up to. Count in tens up to 100. Count backward from 10, don’t forget to blast off!


This week’s learning challenge is subtraction. Using items from your home, cars, toys, buttons or pasta, see if you can ciunt out an amount correcttly. Then chose a smaller number and take it away or subtract it. Can you remember what these signs are? -  =

You can write your number sentence using dots or marks? Make sure you write your numbers the right way round! 

Why not try this fun game.


Your teacher will add this to your online journal in Tapestry along with any supporting documents. 




Weekly Homework


You can read to yourself, read to a family member or listen to someone else read, but try to read every day.


A full digital reading library is available on Oxford Owls and you can access as many books as you like. Other useful sites for reading are:





This week we will be learning the sounds y and z. We will be putting some PowerPoint’s on Tapestry this week to help you learn the new sounds as well as the sounds and words we have already learnt so far.


Can you read and write the Tricky words I, no, go, to, the, into and he. Sing the Tricky Word Rap we shared on Tapestry last week.


The children love to sing the Jolly Phonics songs which are available online.




Everyday practise writing your full name and other words you know how to write.


Have you read or watched our story ‘Whatever Next!’


Can you retell the story? What happened at the beginning? What happened in the middle? What happened at the end? Can you draw some picture from the story in the correct order? In class we call this a story map. May be you can make you some actions to help you remember the story?


When we are writing in reception class at the moment we ask the children if they can hear the first (initial) sound in the word and then if they can hear any other sounds. Remember, daily practice of writing their names is important. They can also practise writing names of other family members.



Ask your parent to check their emails and that they have activated their Tapestry accounts.
