Reception home learning

As you are all aware, at Millbrook, our Reception is all about fun, fun, fun. So whilst your children are at home allow them to learn through play, use their imagination and enjoy talking with them. Outdoor play will support their problem solving skills and stimulate their senses. Here are some ideas to bring their home learning to life;

  • Whilst your child is playing with princesses or dinosaurs ask them if they can come up with a story about them. Then maybe they could write some sentences about it.
  • Allow them to build with lego and create imaginary worlds
  • Get out in the garden and ask your child to build an obstacle course. Ask them to give you instructions on how to complete it.
  • Cook with them and see if they can remember the order of a recipe?
  • Share a book together and ask them how the character may feel? Why do you think the character took a certain action?

Maths

Millbrook's Reception love real life maths so we do a lot of practical maths. Here are some ideas;

  • Count all the time! When you are going up stairs, laying out the table, the
    numbers of buttons being done up, counting socks in the washing, counting out
    apples in the supermarket
  • Money- Give your child real money to play with (maybe not a £10 note!). Can they
    recognise the coins? Show your child how you count out amounts.
  • Marbles- drop marbles into a container, children count what they hear?
  • Have toy clocks, money, a role play shop at home.
  • Play with threading beads, and lacing cards.
  • Can they recognise numbers on road signs, house numbers, number plates etc?
