If you would like any additional learning please use one of the options below:

  • Mymaths on the pupil login page where you can access any lesson and year group activities.
  • http://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom which has daily lessons and activities for each year group launched by the government.
  • BBC bitesize which has a variety of daily learning materials.


Welcome to the Reception blog. Please check daily for new learning. As Mrs Pitt mentioned in the newsletter, please don't worry if you don't cover all the tasks set. Try to work through as much as you can throughout the day.

The Reception day is broken up into chunks to help keep the children motivated. You do not need to complete all the learning tasks in one go. Take regular breaks for snacks/exercise/fresh air(where possible). I have uploaded the Reception day, as it is no longer on the class page. This does not mean you should stick to it at home, it is just there to support you.

I have also included a link to video outline phoneme pronunciation as a guide for phonics.

Hi Reception, 

 

I am your new teacher for next year when you move up to year 1. I know that you might be feeling a little nervous about your new class, so I have set you a couple of activities so you can share some of the things you enjoy and may find tricky. This way I can know a little bit about you before you start and may be able to bring some of these things into your learning and new classroom. You can complete these activities with an adult helping you. If you want to add anything extra then you can. 

 I am looking forward to teaching you in September and we are going to have lots of fun and learn lots of new things! 

Have a lovely summer break and see you ready for a new adventure in September! 

Miss Robson
