Year R – Wednesday’s Home Learning

Year R Home learning for Wednesday 1st July

Subject focus What we need to learn: How we might learn it:
Literacy Children use phonic knowledge to decode regular words and read them aloud accurately.

Visit the phonics play website and play the phase 3 game called ‘Pick a picture’:

In this game your child has to read the words and then select the matching picture.

Offline alternative:

Give your child a set of words (containing phase 3 sounds) to read and match to object around the house e.g.










Maths Children use everyday language to talk about distance.

How far can you jump?

Draw a line on the ground outside or make a line indoors with a belt.

Step 1:  Ask your child to stand on the line and jump forward as far as they can.  

Step 2: Mark where your child has landed. 

Step 3: Repeat  steps 1 and 2 i.e do another jump. 

Step 4: Compare the distance of each jump e.g. talk about which jump was longer, shorter, further, nearer.

Extra Challenge: Can your child use their hands or feet to measure how far they have jumped  and use this information to compare the jumps? 

Other: Physical – Health and self-care Children know the importance of…a healthy diet and talk about ways to keep healthy and safe. They manage their own basic hygiene.

Fruit kebabs/salad

Talk to your child about why we eat fruit and vegetables to keep healthy.  

Make fruit kebabs sticks or a fruit salad with your child and talk about basic hygiene and safety while making them e.g. What do we need to do before we handle food?  Why do we need to wash our hands? How do we safely hold a knife? Why shouldn’t we touch knives without a grown-up helping us?

Extra Challenge: Can your child write a list of all the fruits or equipment they have used? Can they write about their favourite part?

Remember to email the school to let us know how you’ve got on. We’d love to see examples of what you’ve been up to.
