Optional:  Test them on their spellings.

Tricky Words Reading Powerpoint

These are all of the words that children in Reception need to read by the end of the year. We haven't taught them all so don't worry if some children find them tricky.  We have covered the orange and the purple words. 

These are words that cannot be sounded out. Please tell your child what they are so they can start remembering them.



Set up a Shop

Maths Task - Let's Go Shopping

If you set up a 'real'shop' please let children 'play' first. You can encourage lots of language with buying and exchanging money. Use real money to pay for items  and 'role play' what it is like to go shopping.  


Optional - Let children buy items and add up the totals

Children could write a shopping list before they visit the shop.


This is a great activity to do with brothers or sisters.

My Family Drawing

This task is more about 'talking' and for the children to find out about their family.

Don't worry too much about their drawing skill.  Showing them how to draw a person really helps.

Reception -  to label the people and they can tell you/find out about each family member.

Year 1 - Write a caption about each of them.
