Home Learning Reception Weekly Timetable

Home Learning Support 


Each Monday a timetable will be given for the week with suggested year group specific activities to complete each day. The activities are designed to consolidate the aspects of the Reception/Early Years curriculum we have already covered, which means the children should be able to access independently. Click on the PDF document(s) above to access all of the information you need.  There are also helpful links below that will take you to different sites or pages of the website. 


Please do not feel under any pressure to complete all activities set for each day, you need to find a routine that suits the needs of your family.  We cannot stress enough the importance of daily reading.  

Links will still be on the main home learning page of the website to allow you access to a wide range of other home learning opportunities including art, music, science, history, geography, creative writing, handwriting and languages.   There are also some great reading links on this page. 



If you have any urgent concerns please email us on The inbox will be checked each school day and we will aim to respond within 24 hours 

BBC Bitesize

From 20 April, you’ll be able to access daily lessons in English and Maths, as well as other core subjects, in an expanded version of the BBC website and also on special programmes broadcast on BBC iPlayer and BBC Red Button.


New Maths and English lessons will be available every day for all ages.  The content of these lessons will be backed up by videos, practice tests, educational games and articles. Regular lessons on other subjects, including science, will also be available. Families can get advice on home-schooling and the Bitesize website will also have guides for pupils with SEN (special educational needs).


Lessons On Screen

BBC iPlayer and the Red Button service will host Bitesize Daily. These are six different 20 minute shows, each designed to target a specific age group, from ages five to 14, and for pupils throughout the UK. Experts and teachers will be involved, covering what should be learned that day for the different year groups and key stages. Maths, Science and English will be covered in dedicated programmes, and other subjects such as History, Geography, Music and Art will also be covered.

How our Families can support pupils in Reception​​​​​​

  • Read at home every day with their child
  • Children to have a Bedford PE kit in school at all times (indoor: plain white t-shirt, blue or black shorts and pumps. Outdoor: plain white t-shirt, plain black sweatshirt, plain black or navy blue jogging bottoms and trainers)
  • Children to bring their water bottle to school, filled, every morning and take it home every evening

As a parent or guardian, how can I help with my child’s learning?

All the fun activities that you do with your child at home are important in supporting their learning and development, and have a really long lasting effect on your child’s learning as they progress through school. When your child leaves school, please talk to them about their day. 

If you make the time every day to do some of the following things with your child it will make a real difference to your child’s confidence as a young learner.

Activities to support your child with reading at home:

  • Fred Games

Fred is a frog who can say and read words only as pure sounds.  He cannot say whole words.  The team at Read Write Inc phonics have put together some 'Fred Games' for parents to use to support their children when they are learning how to blend sounds together to build words.  Click below to watch the video and to read the PDF leaflet for more Fred Talk ideas.
