Hi everyone,

In light of recent events, our school is now closed until further notice. As we are unsure about how long this will continue, we have created this page to provide extra learning support for the children who are currently learning from home. 

As you are aware, we have sent home printed resources for those who are unable to have online access; if you still are unable to gain access, please email your class teacher and we will find a way to get more resources to you.

Here we will provide some extra learning opportunities in the different areas of the early years curriculum. We will have access to our emails (attached below) at anytime, so please do get in contact if you have any further enquiries. 

We hope that you all stay safe and take care of the ones around you! 

Best wishes, 

Miss Snipp and Mrs T

TOP TIPS ON HANDWASHING:

  • Count for 20 seconds as you wash your hands after holding someones hands, after you've been to the toilet, after handling animals and before you eat!
  • Sing happy birthday twice to ensure hands are fully cleaned.
  • Follow the instructions above for guidance.

Here are some great videos to make kids aware of the importance of washing hands and for a gentle explanation to the Coronavirus.

Thank you so much for sending in all your wonderful photos!  We had lots of fun putting them all together to create this lovely memento of Reception:) We have loved teaching your fantastic children and wish you all a very happy and healthy summer and year ahead. 

All the best from the Reception Team!

This will be our last online learning week together of the term - we want to say a huge thank you for being so positive and supportive throughout this  unusual & challenging term and wish you all the very best of health for a happy and relaxing summer:)

Eliot Midnight Superhero

This is a fantastic book about Eliot Jones, who seems like such a quiet boy, however when the clock strikes midnight...all kinds of things happen!

There are lots of activities in the Learning Ideas doc below to have a go at once you have read/listened to the story; can you remember what happened first in the story?  In the middle?  At the end?

Keep a check on those pencil grips too - have a little read of the rhyme above to help remind you:) There are lots of fun activities you can do at home to help build up your finger and hand muscles and help develop those lovely strong pencil grips! 

For example, have a go at one of the cutting activities or try some finger gym with playdough; if you have some straws at home, try threading some beads or pasta over them, or try stretching elastic bands over different shapes objects - how many can you stretch? 

This week, how about trying to make your own bug/minibeast out of a recycled bottle top?

What are you talking about?!

Have you had a good chat today?

It's good to talk and we would love to hear what you have been chatting and thinking about:)

We love this story told by the author herself who is a wonderful storyteller!  These events really happened to Rukhsana Khan when she came, with her parents, from Pakistan to live in Canada.  She talks about how strange all the traditions and customs of this new country were to her and her parents - take a listen:)

Big Red Lollipop - Booksource

Have a listen here too, where you can see the pages of the book:)

We have been reflecting and thinking about how wonderful it is that we are all different and yet all the same in so many ways too. 

Here are a few resources to celebrate our diversity and how wonderful each and every one of us is:)
