Welcome Back Everyone

A big welcome back and well done to our fantastic Reception children for working so hard last half-term always with a smile on their faces. We feel very proud of all of you. A huge thank you to all parents for your continued support, co-operation and hard work at home as we continue with our different ways of learning. Hopefully we will all be back together again very soon. Keep smiling 😊

Home Learning

All staff in Reception are excited to see you this week either online or in school!

We are really pleased how you have adapted to all the changes so far.

Teams sessions will be at the following times:

9.30a.m –  Phonics or literacy

11.a.m. – Maths or Topic

Afternoon work will be uploaded to Seesaw and should be completed independently in the afternoons.

Included below in the downloads section is a suggested online learning timetable just to provide support for home learning. This suggested timetable is optional. Please decide how and when you will work with your child while they are learning remotely. We know many of you will be working from home yourselves and will need to fit working with your child around your own work commitments.  Prioritise reading, phonics and some maths over the week. Please try and check in on Teams for the daily sessions. Anything else you manage to do is a bonus. Your child will need plenty of time to play and exercise and free choice with play resources at home. I hope you find the timetable useful.

I will continue to be available to contact via the class email for any questions or concerns. This week I will be in school with the keyworker groups in the afternoon.

Thanks must go to you and the Reception children for how well they are adapting to the new challenges.

Looking forward to seeing the children this week.
