Reception Class Activities



Hello everyone,

If you’re in need of a ‘pick-me-up’ or a break from your English and maths learning, have a look at this wonderful website: https://www.outoftheark.co.uk/ootam-at-home/

It has a really catchy song for every day of the week, with easy to follow lyrics and a downloadable resource/activity to match the theme of the song.

New songs are being added all the time for the next few weeks. I will certainly be joining in at home. Have fun. Make a note of which songs you like the best for when we return to school and we can sing them together.

Take care,

Mrs Russell



We would love to hear from you so we know you’re children are safe and well and hear how they are getting on with their home learning. Please email either your child’s teacher, rob.matthews@ravensdale.coventry.sch.uk or jo.stanley@ravensdale.coventry.sch.uk

Spring Thinking for Reception and Nursery.  

This week we have been enjoying the weather and starting to notice the changes happening in nature. If you are inside try using this website link, there are things to watch and then make. https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/grownups/the-seasons-are-changing

If you’d like to hear a story about Spring Cbeebies radio has the tale of spring for you to listen to too.   https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/radio/peter-rabbit-tale-of-spring

If you can get outside tell your adult about the blossom and buds on the trees , listen to the birds singing and if you’re lucky you could spot some birds gathering sticks, moss and other things, what are they making? Why?
