Share the power point story Ten Little Lights and discuss. Talk to you child about describing words and ask them to describe, in detail, what they can see in the illustrations. Talk about anything that links to the winter and again think of describing words that can be used.


Chose one of the winter list templates. Ask your child to think about words to describe the picture. Encourage your child to write a list of describing words about the picture they have chosen. Support your child with independent writing as much as possible helping them to use their phonic knowledge to work out some of the letters they will need, to write the words. If they are struggling, say the sounds in the word they wish to write in an exaggerated way. Write down the word, as a last resort, to show your child which letters they will need. Allow your child to copy underneath each letter. Always use a pencil, not a pen, biro or felt tip.



Have concrete manipulatives, such as real or toy cakes or cubes available for children to recreate the cakes in the picture. 

The focus of this activity is to show how a whole 9% cakes) can be sorted into two parts (two types of cake). Guide the discussion about how the whole can be sorted into two parts, to consolidate the key language of whole and parts, e.g. "you sorted the cakes by moving them into two parts, now put them back together to show the whole again".


What can you see in the picture?

What are their parts? How many cupcakes are there? How many doughnuts ae there?

How many are there altogether? What is the whole?

How many doughnuts will Aidan's toy get? How many cupcakes will Ella's toy get?

Hello and Welcome!


Welcome to our Reception class page.

We will be adding lots of information to this page over the coming weeks so please stay tuned.
