Dear All, 

You should have now received an email with the information you need for Google Classrooms where handwriting, phonics and maths lessons will be posted daily. Learning packs will be posted to you to support the online lessons and embed key skills for the children. e.g. cutting! Please let me know if you have any problems accessing Google Classrooms. 


Please share your home learning on Tapestry if you can and remember, the most important thing is to keep your child and you happy, safe and well. 


Miss L



Our current topic - Superheroes


In Reception we LOVE many things - here are some of the things we LOVE!


We love learning - we understand that play is a vital ingredient! Through play children make progress with their language, creativity, social skills, emotional well-being and cognitive development. Our ever-developing indoor and outdoor provision areas allow children to practice their new ideas, take risks, show imagination and begin to solve problems on their own or with friends. 


We love reading - we read stories as a class every day. We are working really hard to learn all our sounds and blend words together.


Please READ everyday with your child!


We love our parents - our parent's are so important to our learning! It is very important that they read with us every day and keep up to date with the Tapestry app to see what we are doing.



Things to remember in Reception:
