Latest Reception Home Learning

Week commencing Monday 13th July

This is the sixth week of our seven week second half of the summer term.

On this page teaching staff are providing a range of different learning opportunities for you to use at home. We are very aware that families will be in very different situations, so please use what works for you.

Message from the Reception team

Dear parents,

We cannot believe that this is the last week of Reception! It has been such a pleasure to get to know all the children throughout the year and see them grow. The children had a brilliant time learning the ‘ee’ sound and learning to double by ‘buying’ pairs of shoes at the shoe shop and building cities. We can’t wait to have lots of fun with them in the last week!

We still love receiving all the updates with all the lovely photos, so please do keep them coming (even if they’re in school on a part-time basis!). We know it is one more thing that sits you down and away from your work/children, but we really do appreciate it! It is a great way for us to be able to plan according to the children’s progress. We can’t wait to see more next week.

We will continue to plan weekly sessions as we have been. We will learn similar things at school for Sessions 3 and 4 (Wednesday and Thursday), and all the other sessions are provided for you below. Again, these are just suggestions, so if something else works for you and your family, 100% go with that!

We will still be uploading some maths and phonics worksheets and booklets. Feel free to print these off and work through them at your own pace. There are printed resources which can be picked up from the office for those who need it. Please email us if you would like print outs.

We will continue to check in with you throughout the week, so if there is anything you need from us – Extra resources, advice, someone to relieve your stress with – We’re here for you.

Take care,

The Reception Team
