Always Aiming High – Anelu’n Uchel O Hyd


Reception classes learning activities for long distance learning at home.


Please find below a range of fun ideas you can complete with your child during the Easter break should you wish to keep them busy!  These activities are optional only so please do as little or as much as you feel (you do not have to complete any at all). 

We would love to receive pictures of your Easter activities so please feel free to send them in. We will update the website with them each Friday during the Easter break. Please be aware that during the next two weeks your emails may not be responded to. Back to 'school' officially will begin on Monday 20th April with the structured tasks being reset and dialogue returning. 

Wishing you all a wonderful Easter break, building memories and of course staying safe!

Here are two bingo boards full of Easter challenges - how many can you cross off over the Easter holidays?

Here are some craft ideas for you - links can be found in the document below.

Scavenger Hunt

Friday 3rd April - ‘Friday Funday’. Just wanted to say a huge thank you again for all of your lovely emails and pictures this week showing us all of the hard work that the children have been doing but most of all it makes us so happy to see you all having lots of fun!

Reception classes learning activities for long distance learning at home.

Activities below are for children who are not currently attending school and will echo what the children are learning about in class.

Remember that even though you may not be attending school, we would still love to know what you are up to every day! Please feel free to email us pictures of what you have been up to; or if you have any questions please contact us on the following email addresses:

We will be available between the hours of 8.30 and 4.30 every school day.

Whilst it is important to try and help your child with their learning, we appreciate that this is an exceptionally difficult time for everybody, so our main priority is that your child is safe and happy at home. We encourage child led learning as part of our curriculum, so would love you to give your children some time each day to use the toys, art materials, blocks, puzzles and games they have at home as they see fit! We will upload daily literacy, phonics and numeracy activities for children to complete. We will also give ideas for creative activities, and encourage you where possible to support your children in learning ‘life skills’ and developing independence, whether that be helping prepare meals, doing the dishes, helping with chores and cleaning, gardening, washing the car...the list is endless!


As said above, if there’s anything you need, please send us a message.

Class activities 17th March.


Literacy - can you draw your own monster and add some labels to describe it? What adjectives can you use? Adjectives are words that tell us a bit more and describe - your monster may be hairy, it may be slimy, it may have scaly skin or a wriggly is up to you!


Numeracy - can you find items in your house and compare their weight? Choose two objects, and talk about which of the two is heavier and which is lighter.


Class Activities 18th March:


Literacy - We have been writing monster poems! We have used and adjective to describe the monster and then used a verb to describe how it moves. Here is one that we wrote together:

The scary monster stomps

The slimy monster slithers.

The happy monster tip toes


Can you write your own monster poem? use the sentence: The _____ monster ____. 


Numeracy - Read through the Heavier/Lighter PowerPoint and decide which objects are the heaviest or the lightest. You may want to go and find some of these items around the house to help you decide. 




Class activities 19th March


Literacy task 

Can you create a mind map about a monster? What do you think it has (eyes, claws, horns etc) and can you add any adjectives? When you have made your mind map, you can even have a go at drawing a monster with all the things on your mind map!


Numeracy task

Can you roll a monster? To begin with, draw a big body in the middle of a blank piece of paper. Roll a dice and draw that body part on your monster. Keep going until you have a monster with all sorts of body parts! See the tables in the documents below for more information:

- The first table you will only need to roll once,

- The second table is a challenge - can you roll twice and add the two numbers together to choose the body part?

Friday 20th March:


Literacy: You have been busy drawing and describing monsters. Can you draw and describe the members of your family? It could be family who live in your house or members of family that don’t live with you. Draw and picture and write some adjectives to describe them e.g blue eyes, brown hair. 


Numeracy: This term we have looking at measuring in a range of contexts. We have learnt about Capacity, Legnth, Time and Weight. We have learnt so many key words such as; heavier, lighter, smaller, taller, longer and shorter. Play the interactive game where you have to sort and compare items into the right category.
