Welcome to our Reception and Year One Blended Learning page. We thought it would be easier to post the Reception and Year One joint learning activities on here, rather than on each individual class page. As you know, Reception and Year One have joined bubbles, and are sharing learning activities. If you have any queries contact your child's teacher. Reception teacher is Mrs Blundell, Year One teacher is Mrs Shearman. Below is our welcome message to you all.

Welcome to our bubble!

It's been raining so much we thought we would have a watery sea themed story today! Tiddler likes to tell stories! After you've listened to the story, maybe you could draw a picture and write something about it? Or maybe you could draw one of your teachers? Tiddler's teacher is called Miss Skate...I wonder who you will draw! Don't forget your letter formation rhymes and your fred fingers for spelling words! I hope you have your froggy fingers ready!

Tiddler by Julia Donaldson, read by Mrs N Blundell

Can you create an under sea picture. You might include some of the fish from the story, or maybe you will create your own fish. You could paint, collage or colour your picture, or even use a computer to draw it.

Our maths focus today is money. Today we are going to have a look at some coins. Can you find a 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p coin. Use some crayons to do some coin rubbings. Can you make other amounts of money using your coins? Maybe you could set up a small shop and do some role play?

We love being on the farm. Have you ever been to a farm? Can you paint or draw a picture showing us some of your favourite farm animals? Or maybe you could make a model? If you have a toy farm you could set it up and take a photo to show us. I wonder what your favourite farm animal is?
