Morning Prayer - Our Father


At school we prayer in the morning, before lunch and at home time. We thank God for the wonderful things we have and also ask him to protect us.

Please take time to pray with your family and build your faith with God during this time.

Here are two links for nice ideas for prayers.


This one seems nice and simple for children and parents and has a link to the rosary too. 


This is a link to the Catholic Church Bishops Conference of England and Wales.  They have a whole Coronavirus section with prayers as well as a link to live Mass and the Vatican.




Let the learning begin….


What day is it?

What month is it?

  • Practise holding a pencil correctly
  • Practise writing each letter correctly   
  • Practise writing words from 45 high frequency words for Reception
  • Playing with playdough strengthens pencil grip
  • Threading also helps for a better grip – threading laces through a shoe (if you don’t have any other threading resources)
    NO new SOUND to learn today:
  1. Recap sounds already learnt
  2. Take time to reflect about what you did over the weekend and be thankful for these things.
  3. Write about what you did over the weekend. Using your phonics to sound out each word. Spelling words phonetically is still correct!





  • Count 0-20 - forwards and backwards
  • Practising writing the numbers 0-20 correctly
  • Practise putting numbers in order
  • Focus on number 15 - write number 15
  • Find and circle number 15 in a mixture of numbers
  • Show 15 by drawing 15 objects - for example draw 15 girls, count the girls and write number 15 beside it, draw 15 flowers, count and write number 15 beside it, do this 5 times (your child can pick objects they what to draw - girls and flowers are just my examples).
