Year R - Week beginning 18th May

Hi Reception, 

We hope you had a brilliant week last week! We were particularly impressed with how many of you became ‘very busy spiders’ - working on lots of fantastic maths activities. 

We loved seeing your impressive phonics activities too, along with some brilliant artwork and very creative construction ideas! 

We have a special super hero joining this week in our maths - don’t forget to check out the story being read on Tapestry by Miss Moon… who could it be? Also, remember to watch Mrs Bolden’s brilliant phonics videos and the links featuring another special super hero of ours, who loves phonics so much - Geraldine the Giraffe! 

If you need anything at all, please just email us. 

Best wishes, 

Reception Team 


Every day you should do:

Independent learning time ideas: w/c 18th May 2020

People who help us - ‘Our NHS’

Please see below for some ideas for Independent Learning activities you could also do this week 

Last week marked the 200 year anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birth, the founder of modern nursing. Nursing, along with many other professions in the NHS, form a crucial part of the health service in this country.

Therefore, here at St. Peters, we would like to take this opportunity to shine a light on ‘Our NHS’ as part of a special focus week.

We hope you enjoy exploring and getting involved in some of the exciting activities that have been planned for you! Don’t forget to let your teacher know how you’re getting on – they would be thrilled to hear all about what you’ve been up to!


Monday Assembly

Visit the ‘virtual school’ section of the St. Peter’s website to explore the Monday assembly linked to this week's focus on

‘Our NHS’.




Use the NHS timeline to explore one of the dates in more detail.

Can you turn one of the timeline dates into a poster design?



Role play

Think of a job that links to science/the NHS. Can you take on/act out this job in your play?

Maybe you need to wear certain clothes?

What might be some of the things you say?

What equipment might you need?

Can you make props to support your play?




‘Like me’ or ‘not like me’ (Worksheet at bottom of page).

Different jobs require different skills and knowledge. Tick the things that are most like you. Put a cross against the things that are least like you.

Then, think about the following questions:

What jobs do you think you would be good at? Why?

What do you think you might want to do when you grow up? Why?

Can you think of any jobs in the NHS that link to the answers you gave on your worksheet?



Keyboard skills

Can you type up some of the information you have explored /something you have learnt this week - about the NHS?



NHS jobs cards (attached)

Explore the ‘Job Cards’. Then read to a grown-up, or ask a grown-up to read to you, about at least 1 of the jobs on the NHS jobs cards, in more detail.

Think about the following questions:

What do they do?

What do you think is the best part of their job?

What do you think is the hardest part of their job?



NHS jobs

Can you write a super sentence about a job in the NHS?

You may want to look at the ‘Job Cards’ - if you need help with this.


Art and Design


Can you create a piece of artwork, to illustrate what you know/have learnt about the NHS?
