Weekly home challenges: 6th - 9th July

Term 6 week 6

Good morning! 

Only 2 weeks left of this term, it definitely isn't how we would have hoped to end the reception year with you all. What have you most enjoyed this year. Can you post/email us your favourite memory of your first year at RAPS? We would love to hear what you think :) 

Remember these weekly challenges are for you to pick and choose what you feel able to do at home. There is no expectation that you must complete all the challenges. We would love to see some more of your home learning work and of course anything else you may be getting up to at home. If you get stuck with any of the challenges or are unsure of any of the work set please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Happy home learning! :)


Reminder of the home learning folder:

We have created lots of resources in the EYFS home learning folder located at the top of the blog (password:Viking). We have created a Term 6 folder for RWI, Maths and Topic. We have put lots of printable resources, power points and lots of other learning ideas that support the tasks below. For example, topic this week may say please see the under the sea powerpoint. This means that we do not need to add the individual links to the bottom of this post as it would be too much but we have added tonnes of things to support your learning. If you have trouble accessing this then please message us.

Books for Change

Parents and staff from Chilton Primary School and Ramsgate Arts Primary School have been inspired by Folkestone Books for Change fundraising campaign. 

We want to empower every child in our town to know that they can make a difference in the world and this journey starts through reading exciting books. 

We need our school libraries to stock a diverse and inclusive range of fiction and non-fiction, picture and fact books that include diverse characters of colour, children with disability, strong female protagonists and everyone that dares to be different. 

Children need to see themselves and others reflected in the books around them. This will help them to relate to and be inspired by role models from all communities and backgrounds. 

If you would like to contact us or to offer your support, you can do this through Facebook or via email 

We believe in the power of our children and these books have the power to bring change into the classroom and into the world. 

Please donate what you can. Thank you for your donation no matter how big or small. 


Have a FANTASTIC week Team Barnes and please email me or post on our class padlet anything you get up to! 

Missing you all lots!

Mrs Barnes, Miss Taft and Mrs Pilcher :)
