Reception Home Learning - Week 3 (20th April - 24th April)


Hello Reception! We hope that you had a lovely Easter break and filled your days playing, resting and having fun with your families!


Below, there are many activities for your all to try this week as well as a suggested structured timetable. How many of the Bingo challenges will you be able to work through? There are also some extra activity ideas attached below the timetable if needed.


Your most important task for the week is to try to complete at least one of these kindness tasks:


  • write or draw what kindness means to you
  • check in on neighbours in a safe way - perhaps, put a note through their door
  • call or write to a relative
  • write down three things that you are grateful for
  • draw or make something for someone that you live with


We cannot wait to hear all about your week!
