Hello Reception Robins. We hope you are all well, that you are keeping busy and staying safe with your grown-ups. We would love to see what fun you have been having at home - we know a lot of you have been doing your Rainbow Challenges and collecting your sticks. It would be great to see some of the challenges you have done and fun you've been having.

Please share your photos using our new class email address: - we can't wait to see what you've been up to!

RAINBOW Challenge

Weekly Rainbow Challenges to complete at home.

Can you collect all 6 challenge sticks to make a rainbow?

Week beginning: Monday 18th May 2020

Our new topic is 'People Who Help Us'. To begin the topic, we would like the children to learn more about Police Officers.

   Red Challenge    


Draw a picture of a police officer and label the important parts. Think about their badge and uniform. Why do they have to wear certain items? 

Can you write a thank you letter for your police officer?

Orange Challenge


Make yourself a police badge. You could make this using cardboard, tinfoil and paint. 

Now you can use this to pretend to be a police officer. 

Why is it important that police officers wear a badge?

Yellow Challenge

Play detectives and become crime scene investigators. 

You could practice taking finger prints like a real detective by painting the tips of your fingers and printing them on to the paper.

Look at the different patterns - are they all the same? Compare yours to other members of your household.

Green Challenge

Police officers have to do a lot of exercise to keep fit and strong. Do your exercises while pretending to be a police officer.

Can you exercise by hopping, skipping, running, jogging, walking and jumping?

Blue Challenge

Log in to Education City

Complete the challenge. 

Purple Challenge


 Have a conversation with people in your household or over 'FaceTime', with other members of your family. 

Discuss how police officers help us.
