St Mary Magdalen's Catholic Primary School

Reception (EYFS) home Learning

Welcome to Reception's home learning page!

Miss Knight has been busy making videos to help you with your learning and they will be posted here every day by 9am.

As well as those activities, for at least 15 minutes per day you MUST:

  • Read;
  • Practise your phonics;
  • Practise your handwriting;
  • Practise your numbers. 

Don't forget to join in Joe Wicks' PE twice a day to keep you active.

All of these things will keep your brain in tiptop condition for when you return back to school. 

If you get stuck, email Miss Knight at admin@st-marymagdalens.lewisham.sch.uk and she will get back to you as soon as possible. 

Happy learning!

Don't forget you can choose to access the activities on Literacy Planet and Busy Things too.

Expressive Arts and Design

The Three Little Pigs made three very different houses. If you were to design your own home what would you build it with? What would your house look like?

Your task today is to design and build your own home. You can use whatever you have around your home.

After you have built it you could test out how strong it is by trying to blow it down like the big bad wolf!

In our new RE topic we will be learning about Celebrations.

What celebrations can you think of? We have just had a very important celebration - Christmas!

How did you celebrate? Who did you celebrate with? What kind of things did you do? Did you play any of the party games we learnt and played last term?

It would be lovely if you could draw a picture of your Christmas celebration. 

You could learn the following song and sing to the tune of Sing a song of sixpence
