1. Reception work from home

Well done for your incredible work during this difficult period.  Have a lovely summer break everyone!

Reception work from home

Hello Reception,


We can't quite believe that we are at this point in the year already! This was not how we imagined our time together would end but we have had a fantastic year with you all and are incredibly proud of all that you have achieved, especially during these challenging times. It's very strange not to be able to see you all to say goodbye properly but we have been so impressed by your hard work, positive attitudes and perseverance.  We cannot wait to see you all soon and we know that you are going to be amazing in Year 1, having lots of fun whilst learning with Mrs Parkes and Mrs Scope! Thank you to parents too- you have done a brilliant job during the period of partial school closure and have provided the children with lots of fun, memorable learning experiences. Thank you for sharing with us, all of the lovely learning that has been going on, it really has been so wonderful to see.


We hope that everyone has a well-earned summer break and we look forward to seeing you all back in school in September!


The EYFS Team,

Mrs Wynne, Mrs Palmer and Mrs Matkin

Please see the newsletter sent out on the school jotter app regarding online daily phonics lessons which are now available through 'Letters and Sounds' which is the approach we use for teaching in school.  Details of how to access this can be found on the letter sent out in the app but if you need any help with this then please contact us through Tapestry.  Each session will be online daily from Monday 27th April and at 10am there is a lesson to teach the Reception sounds for the summer term and at 11am there is a recap and additional practice session which will be useful if your child finds phonics tricky. 


This week, we have set some topic learning based on the theme of Jack and the Beanstalk.


You can find lots of topic ideas here.

Below you will find some resources which you may find useful, however, please remember that in the nature of Early Years, practical activities and games are best, however, we know that some parents (especially if you are working from home too!) like to be able to print off some activities too!

We appreciate that this will be a difficult time with lots of uncertainty and the need for time to learn as well as time to play and relax.  Here are some ideas of ways to maintain a happy home during this time.


In EYFS, we like to make learning as practical as possible through games etc.  Here are some ideas of ways in which you could do this at home. EYFS Home Learning


There are lots of apps and websites available which are free to access during this stressful time, please use some of these to continue your learning at home.

Phonics and Reading




We have allocated lots of extra books and games for you to continue to access books and reading tasks at home on bug club (logins for Bug Club can be found inside your child's reading record).


Week 2- Phonics

Please click here to access this weeks sounds for learning at home and activities.


Within the recap aspect of phonics, you will see lots of suggested ways of recapping the sounds we have already taught, such as making your own flashcards.  If you have access to a tablet or laptop, here is a powerpoint which you may wish to use to revisit prior learning.



Week 1- 3D shapes

We would like you to explore the concept of 3D shape at home.  Here is the main teaching and vocabulary you could use with your child and suggested activity ideas, such as building a junk modelled robot and naming the different 3D shapes you can see.


Week 2- 2D shapes

This week, we would like you to explore the concept of 2D shapes at home.  Remember to try to reinforce learning from last week on 3D shapes during teaching this week too! Here is the plan for main teaching.  Here are some other ideas you may wish to use during learning at home on 2D shape.


If you have access to a printer, here are the activities we have given in the plan for learning this week- building a shape dinosaur and colour by shape. Remember that it is not a problem if you cannot access a printer, as we have given alternative ways to complete these activities on the plan for main teaching. Have fun with shapes!



As it would have been the Easter break for the next two weeks, we will not be setting maths and phonics learning.  Here are some Easter challenges we would like you to try to complete over the next two weeks.  How many of the challenges can you complete? We are looking forward to seeing your photographs as one tapestry post once you have completed your Easter challenge card!


We hope you manage to enjoy the fun of Easter time, even during this challenging time.


Mrs Wynne and Mrs Palmer can be contacted through Tapestry, should you need any support or advice.  We look forward to seeing all of your learning on Tapestry (but it is not compulsory for it to be uploaded).


We will continue to upload new ideas of ways you can learn at home and our new learning e.g. phonics sounds and maths concepts via
