Week 8 Begins 1.6.20

Good Morning Brilliant Butterflies!

We hope that you had a great week and that you could enjoy the sunshine. 

Welcome back to home learning and our new topic of Marvellous Minibeasts!

This week's Derbyshire School Games Plans are for Athletics, so enjoy jumping, throwing and running!

Our topic this term is Marvellous Minibeasts!

Have a look on the main Reception page for ways to get creative! We would love to see your creations so take a picture and post it on Tapestry. We have created a Reception Art Gallery that's waiting to be filled with your amazing art and crafts! Upload your photograph to Tapestry and we will put some in the gallery for all your friends to see when they log on the website.



I’m aware that at home, you don’t have the same access to reading books that we do in school, so I’ve added some reading resources to the 'READING resources and weblinks' folder. You will find extra reading activities including; sentence reading, comprehension colouring, book review templates and rhyming activites. If you do have books to read at home or on Oxford Owl, then try to focus on a different inference skill each day.


Develop your inference skills by focusing on one a day

  • Predict (look at the front cover, title and picture clues to Predict what you think the book will be about)
  • Word breakdown (check understanding of words read)
  • Give the gist of the story (give a brief overview of what has happened in the story)



I’ve added a Music page with weblinks to some fun ideas for activities to develop music skills. From making your own instruments to singing along to songs. I will also add a music lesson to the weekly page each week for those that would like to get musical.


Here is a Powerpoint that may help children that are returning to school.
