'Learn, Grow and Achieve Together Through God's Love'
We have set up a 'Home Learning' page under the 'Key Information' tab. This will provide more information for you about how to access a quality education for your children at home. Please remember to check your child's class page under the 'Children' tab for regular updates from your classteacher. Please collect a paper pack if you cannot access technology. If you would like more information please phone the DFE coronavirus helpline 0800 046 8687 or visit the full government guidance at:https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-to-educational-settings-about-covid-19/guidance-to-educational-settings-about-covid-19
Thank you for your tremendous support and understanding in this matter, if anything positive can come out of this then it is the wonderful community spirit and offers of help that have been overwhelming.
In the initial stages of Reception, our primary focus is ensuring that your child settles well into school and enjoys their learning in class.
After the first few weeks, we will begin to send home a reading book for your child to enjoy each week. This will initially be a wordless book, where your child can tell a story through the pictures. We will also send home an environmental sounds book where your child can talk about the sounds that we hear around us such as in the home or at school.
We will use Seesaw to set a weekly homework task every Monday. This will comprise of a simple Maths activity, based on the week's learning. There will also be a simple Phonics task; although this will not initially include letter sounds and may be linked to sharing books or rhymes together at home.
Seesaw is also a lovely way to share your child's achievements or family activities from home. I will then add these to your child's Learning Journey Book at school so as to show their special moments and memories.
A half termly Learning Log project will also be set after half term.
You can find details of these in the Learning Logs section of our Class Page.
