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;
Oxford Owl Reading Tree- Share an online book with your child
Amazon audible books- https://stories.audible.com/start-listen
Phonics Play- Some great interactive games that the children love.
Phonics sound mats are available from Twinkl. Just create your free account using the code CVDTWINKLHELPS
Mr Thorne- Pronunciation of phonic sounds can be tricky. Mr Thorne's Youtube channel helps with pronunciation and is very child friendly.
Training Space- Every day at 9.45am Jane Considine is streaming live English lessons for every age group
IXL English- Packed full of English skills activities and quizzes,
Millbrook's Reception love real life maths so we do a lot of practical maths. Here are some ideas;
White Rose Maths- A fantastic maths resource that gives you five lessons a week (in line with the curriculum) with a helpful video followed by a worksheet.
Topmarks- A variety of Maths games that are fun and engaging.
IXL- Packed full of quizzes and activities.
At Millbrook Primary School the curriculum is designed to recognise children's prior learning, provide first hand learning experiences and allow the children to become a learner for life.
