Ideas and links for Reception Home Learning

Go for walks outdoors and notice the patterns and changes in the natural world. 

Plant some seeds to watch them grow, count how many more leaves each day, how much taller, etc. and record the change using photos, drawings or tables. Discuss the changes they see.

Stories we were going to explore in Literacy over the rest of the Spring term are The Gigantic Turnip and The Little Red Hen. These stories link to our topic of ‘Changing and Growing’.
