We are using this class page to share information, and photos, so do check it regularly. It will be updated about once every half term.
As you will be aware, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, school is now open at a reduced capacity. I have undertaken a risk assessment for the Reception Class to highlight action that we will be taking to help minimise the risk of spreading the virus, and you can find it in the documents at the top of the page entitled "Reception Class Risk Assessment for Covid-19". If your child is coming into school this week, you will probably find it particularly relevant, as it highlights many expectations and routines that will be necessary for you to know about.
In Reception Class, we're still sending regular suggestions to keep you busy at home via tapestry. If you would like to see an over view of the phonics and maths focus for each week this half term - please see the PDF document entitled "Phonics and Number Summer 2nd half 2020" above.
It's SO lovely to see your smiling photos and all the wonderful learning that you're doing at home, keep posting them on tapestry! We shall look at them regularly in school, and will print them off and put them up on our classroom walls!
Two websites for books that come highly recommended are:
https://readon.myon.co.uk/ (a huge online library)
https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/(books here can be browsed by age range)
A few have said that their children would like some more physical activity, I would recommend:
for some simple PE challenges, focussed on personal bests. They include things like "how many times can you pass a ball around your tummy without dropping it in 60 seconds?" Some require equipment e.g. a beanbag and a hoop, if you don't have these at home, you could always improvise with a balled up sock and a skipping rope/belt laid out in a circle/ draw a circle in chalk.
The section at the very bottom of this page is full of stories and songs that the children have been enjoying.
If any of the links on this page do not work - please let us know in school, there is an occasional technical hitch, which we would be eager to solve if it ever crops up.
Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your teacher know!
