Home Learning

Home Learning packs will be coming home with your child tonight. Please feel free to work through these with your child supporting them as needed.

Please visit the recommended websites/links that have been suggested in the packs.

The children have been given logins for both Spelling Shed and Purple Mash and work will be set on these websites regularly.

Please also ensure you use this time to do non-academic activities and have lots of fun too! For example, you could do some baking, paint pictures, play in the garden, write a diary, exercise regularly, share stories, listen to audio books, listen to music, play board games or junk model!

We will keep in touch with you via these class pages so please check them on a regular basis for any updates.

Above all else, keep healthy and safe and we will see you soon.

Mrs Snape, Miss Cassinelli and Mrs Devy.


Parents please check your email for a link to activate your parent access to your child's Tapestry Online Learning Journal. Here you will be able to look back through previous observations of your child, like and comment on them and share photos with staff of the things you  have been  doing whilst at home.

We have already received some lovely photos on Tapestry and will check this regularly. Thanks. 

A very warm welcome to our class page from Reception Ash.

Teddy Bear's Picnic

Today the Reception children held a teddy bear's picnic! The children helped to prepare and make the food, set up the picnic and serve the food to each other. The children, the teddy bears and staff all had a wonderful time.

Wednesday 15th January 2020- Today, we had an Eco-Day at school to help raise money for the bush fires in Australia. The whole school took part and we wore green and yellow, the colours of the Australian flag. We took part in lots of activities such as recycling, designing posters for a competition and watching videos. Reception had a lovely day and really enjoyed it!

Here are some facts the children learnt during Eco-Day:

Annabelle- "Litter can be dangerous for animals."

Darcey- "Always put litter in the bin!"

Vinny- "Never leave the taps running when we brush our teeth and always turn the taps off to save water."

Dougie- "We need to make sure we turn lights off when we leave a room to save electricity."


Well done everyone!

Well done Reception!

We have really enjoyed celebrating Black History Week!

Wednesday 11th September 2019

This morning we became artists and drew self-portraits. We used mirrors to look at all our different facial features and identified colours, shapes and sizes.


We also explored a drum today within our phonics lesson and discussed what sounds it makes, what it looks like and how you use it. Afterwards, we each had a turn at playing either a loud or quiet sound on the drum and clapping along and we really enjoyed making Miss Cassinelli and Mrs Devy jump with our loud sounds!

Tuesday 10th September 2019

Today we took part in a listening walk around school with our friends in the other Reception class. We used the magical ears to help us listen to lots of sounds. We explored both loud and quiet sounds and talked about the differences and heard lots of things both inside and outside school. We had lots of fun!

We have had a wonderful first week in Reception exploring the new classroom, playing games, singing songs and making lots of new friends.
We also had our first PE lesson with our Reception friends in the Elm class! We had lots of fun together!

Take a look at our fantastic new classroom!

What a lovely place to learn!
