If this is your first visit to this website site, please read the next few paragraphs to familiarise yourself with the setup and function of this website.
This is a template blog post in which I share the daily adult led input normally delivered to the children in my reception class.
In this blog post there is a phonics input, a sentence writing input and a maths input; please see the relevant section below).
The wording of this blog post will be the same every day, with only the ‘teaching input’ content changing. This will allow me to post quicker, with less typos and allow regular visitors to become familiar with the structure so they can focus on delivering the content to the children in their care.
The goal of this website is to inform, rather than entertain adults, so they can support the progress of the children.
Please note, I have created this website as this information doesn’t easily fit on Class Dojo, the normal platform I use to communicate with the parents of the children in my class. This means that the content posted is based on my class’s needs and current place in our curriculum.
Parents outside of Rabbit Class are more than welcome to use this content to support their children learning at home, however I will not be taking requests to create specific videos. The children of Rabbit class are my priority.
The home teaching section:
Today’s phonics session includes both reading and writing activities, so please have a pencil and paper ready.

Here is our sentence writing exercise for today.
The correct order for the words is “Under a boat in the rain.”.
Before starting please ask the children to tell you the three things they need to write a sentence (1. Capital letter at the start, 2. Finger spaces, 3. A full stop at the end.).
Ideas for a phonically decodable extra sentence the children could attempt to write with support from you and their sound mats are:
- The men are wet.
- I can see a tent.
- The men are not wearing socks.
For today’s maths you will need ‘two sets of ace to 10’ playing cards from a pack.
We will be attempting to use these 20 playing cards to build a house of cards (please see video).
If you do not have a pack of cards, it might be fun to try to make the cards. Beer mats also work.
Please discuss with the cards that 20 is two sets of 10. When counting the cards, please use the second ace as 11, the second 2 as 12 etc, stating 10 and 2 is twelve etc.
Thank you as always for your support.
