Welcome to our ‘Home Learning’ page.
This page has been set up to help our children to access learning from home after the announcement of school closures by the Prime Minister on Wednesday 18th March 2020.
We feel it is important that our children continue to learn and thrive during these difficult and uncertain times.
Please check these pages on a weekly basis for information regarding home learning.
We would just like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all our parents for their continued support and wish everyone a safe and quick return to normality (whenever that maybe).
The Reception Team
Have a Happy Half Term!
This half term may have continued in a rather unusual way, but we just wanted to say a massive thank you to all our children, parents and families for working so hard with home learning. We are going to take a break for the holiday from posting new activities on to this webpage, as we thought you all deserved a bit of a rest!
Also, as we have so many activities and links on this page, we thought you may want to use the opportunity to catch up on various tasks you didn't have time to cover.
We wish you all good health and happiness!
The Reception Team
For those of our families celebrating the end of Ramadan this weekend, we wish you all a 'Happy Eid!'. If you would like to explore some activities linked to Eid we have added a few ideas below:
VE Day Celebrations
As a whole school, our learning this week is focused on VE (Victory in Europe) celebrations on Friday 8th May. This day in 1945 signalled the end of World War 2. This year, to mark the 75th aniversary, the date would have been a bank Holiday and lots of activities and celebrations were planned across the country. We have put together activities to help us think about this important event and learn how people celebrated this event in 1945. We hope you enjoy celebrating at home with your family.
St. George's Day!
Thursday 23rd April
If you would like to find out a bit more about the St. George's Day, there is a powerpoint and some activities below.
We would like to wish our Muslim families a successful month of fasting during Ramadan. If you would like to find out more information about Ramadan, please have a look at the information below.

The EYFS Curriculum
As our curriculum is mainly play-based, we would encourage you to continue playing with your child in a safe and happy environment, which is how they will learn best!
Although we would love you to continue with reading practice and number work (especially Read, Write, Inc. green and red words), it is important for children to develop essential skills across all areas of the EYFS curriculum.
Over the coming weeks, we will post suggested activities for you and your child to enjoy together - please do not feel like you have to complete formal worksheets.
Please use Tapestry to add photos and observations of your child - we can't wait to see what you get up to! Your Tapestry posts will help us to see your child's progress.
