Home Page


Hello Reception! Please note the changes in the learning from 1st June as stated in the previous letter sent out. Each week a document will be uploaded with a timetable full of links for the weekly lessons. If you click on the link, it will take you straight to the lesson for that day. If there are any problems, please feel free to contact me on the email address in the document, please note I will be able to respond to emails sooner than your child's usual class teacher as I am working from home. As always, please continue to utilise the Oxford Owl website for online reading scheme books.

Communication and language lessons

As you are aware, the online learning has been changed to follow the National Oak Academy remote learning. However, to ensure that the reception children continue to see a familiar face regularly, Miss Carter and Mrs Bremner will add a communication and language lesson onto this page every Friday afternoon. We hope that you enjoy them and we are looking forward to seeing your work uploaded onto Tapestry. 

Please find a range of fun and educational activities to do with your child during the school closure.

  • Visit the website for mindfulness and yoga episodes to keep your mind and body healthy.
  • Make a Fruit Salad face and talk about the importance of a healthy balanced diet. Give it a name and write about it.

Home Learning Project:

Our class topic for this term is WE ARE LEGENDS and we would love it if you could put together a project to show us what you have learnt using pictures and words/ sentences. You could present your project as a piece of drawing/writing, ART (including models), poster etc or a real mix of a few different ways.

Our class topic for next term is RECEPTION’S WILD ADVENTURES. Please click on the document at the bottom of the page for information about it or visit Reception’s Class Page on the school website to find out and complete the next Home Learning Project to do with your child.


Wonderful Websites:

Below is a list of education companies offering free subscriptions due to school closures. All you need to do is visit the site, follow the instructions and sign up.

We know your days will not always be able to facilitate learning and lots of it but we hope what we have provided will help keep your children engaged and help your stress levels (NOT add to them) by keeping them busy. You are of course more than welcome to set your own home learning projects/ activities and these might include:

  • Drawing pictures of favourite TV characters
  • Drawing and writing about their favourite game
  • Drawing a picture diary/ writing a daily diary
  • Reading a listening to a wide variety of books



We would love to see all the fantastic learning your child is doing at home so please upload as much as you can to our Tapestry online journals so you can share your children’s accomplishments with us.


Class teacher email: for Reception B or for Reception C.

If you have any questions or queries regarding your child’s learning and/or would like any further advice or support, please email me during school hours. I will endeavour to answer emails within 24hrs.


Above all else, we as a community must stay safe, support one another and strive to come through what is a period of uncertainty for all, as smoothly as possible. We look forward to seeing everyone back in school again soon.
