Home Learning.


Hello Ladybirds

Firstly welcome back to our class page and some more home learning challenges. As you know we will now be teaching full time and this will be based on the home learning we are putting on the website. The activities have been broken into small chunks to make it more manageable on a daily basis. We will also continue to have story time on Tapestry so don"t forget your requests! Remember to keep reading and practising your sounds, there are learning videos below to help.

                    Have fun and take care

               Mrs Lindsay and Mrs Wort.

Hello from Lockdown

Hello all,

Hope you are well. I just wanted to remind you that there are some topic resources below, e.g. sequencing the growth of a plant, labelling a plant etc. I have also been given another really useful website which gives your child the opportunity to join in with an online classroom.

Please follow the link below which should take you straight to the reception class page, however, some of you could also look at the year 1 class, especially for the maths.

Finally, Miss Dyer has kindly made some phonic videos which are underneath the topic resources as an additional resource.

Missing you 

Mrs L :) and Mrs W :)

Hello everyone, 

It was so lovely talking to you all last week and knowing that not only are you safe and well but you have been trying really hard with the home learning, not only on the website but also with all the extra bits some of you are doing as well. Thank you and keep up the great work. 

As lots of you are really enjoying learning about  life cycles at the moment we have added a ladybird one for you to cut, stick and label or draw if you don't have a printer.

                                      Warmest wishes

                                            Mrs Lindsay

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and had a good, if not, rather unusual Easter break. 

It seems strange talking about the Summer term when Spring is still with us, however, I have put this half terms parent communication letter below to give you some additional ideas for home learning, along with the weekly literacy and numeracy tasks.. I will continue  to upload further learning opportunities over the coming weeks. Please check the home learning and topic resources further down this page.

Please visit the Read Write Inc phonics website to keep up with the daily phonic lessons the children would normally have in school. The Oxford Owl website has lots of free ebooks appropriate for your child's reading level, especially as you may be getting short of reading material by now.

              Take care and hope to speak to you all soon.

                            Mrs Lindsay


Learning intentions for this term.


I hope you are all well and enjoying the weather which is certainly helping to raise spirits over these worrying times. Below are some links which you may like to follow over the Easter period, after which, homework tasks will be resumed on the 20th April.

Missing you all

 Spring Term 


It was with a heavy heart that we had to say goodbye to the majority of you on Friday 20th March, especially not knowing when we would see each other again. Our thoughts are with you and your families during these troubled times.


We sent the children home with a homework diary, keywords and handwriting sheet for them to continue practising their daily sentence and handwriting. Thank you to the parents who were able to collect them for the families already in isolation. For those of you who have not been able to collect your child's we will leave them in a box outside under the main reception canopy, along with the few remaining reading books we have been sending home.

We have started putting together some ideas for home learning, please see below, this is by no means compulsory and we will update them on a weekly basis. If you think your child would benefit from the structure and routines of school we  have devised  a timetable which you may like to follow.

Take care


Mrs Lindsay









Hello and welcome back for another busy term!  We are very sad to say goodbye to Mrs Foy   but we wish her well with all her new projects. 


This term has started with our topic of toys. Your children will be bringing toys into school and using them as part of their learning. They will be weighing and measuring them as well as learning about the materials they are made from. 

To begin our maths learning journey, we will be exploring the concept of measuring.However we will be continue to use numbers in all aspects of our learning and would appreciate it if you could help the children to practise writing and ordering their numbers from 10-20 , checking that they are writing the teen numbers correctly: i.e. 15 rather than 51.

If you have any questions about ways you can help your child during their time in reception, please ask me during parents evening. or after school, any evening. 

The reception team appreciate all the time and effort you put into supporting your child with their reading and homework.

We had a very enjoyable half term looking at people who help us, The Enormous Turnip and The Little Red Hen. It was great fun having parents and grandparents in school to share their experiences and baking bread and eating it!

The children are enjoying their phonics and number time sessions. The sounds we have covered so far are - m,a,s,d,t,i,n,p,g,o,c,k,u,b - please keep practising recognising them on sight and finding things beginning with those sounds.

In mathematics we are looking very carefully at the numbers 0-5, by counting carefully, ordering, writing, representing the number/quantity in different ways, looking for patterns, finding as many different ways as possible to take the number apart and put it back together again.

Over the next few weeks we will look at The Gingerbread man, The Owl babies and Percy the Park Keeper to find out more about Autumn, the weather and discuss the meaning of nocturnal and hibernation. We will also be busy rehearsing for our Nativity play which we will share with you in December.




Welcome Butterflies!


It was fantastic to meet you all on home visits and find out about some of the things you like doing.

You are settling in brilliantly and quickly picking up daily routines.

We know that the start of school can be exciting and sometimes bewildering. If you are feeling uncertain at all, please ask an adult to help as we are here to support you and want to make sure you feel happy and safe in school.
