Happy New Year!

We will be adding plans and resources to the on the tab called

'Reception Working from Home Plans.'

Please take a look and join in.

We will be checking in each morning via Zoom. The link will be posted on the same page as the Weekly Powerpoint, which you and your child can work through.

Play is important for Early Years so although we have provided lots of learning, there is also space for free choice play. If you need any extra ideas for free play activities, please check out the end of the Powerpoint and our pinterest pages, which we are adding to constantly.

There is also a plethora of resources on the other tabs in this area. 

Please keep in touch with us via evidence me, we can't wait to see what you have all been doing! 

More information about what is happening next  for Reception will be coming to you from Ms Matthews. Please look out for parent updates via email. 

For now, stay safe and keep well. 

Lots and lots of love, your Reception team. Xxx

Our curriculum

As you know, the learning in Early Years is divided into seven areas.  We work with these in mind along with the Characteristics of Effective Learning, in order to provide children with the best possible learning experiences. 

During any period where working from home becomes necessary, we will be suggesting ideas for activities that can encourage learning through play and experience, wherever possible. Examples of activities your child can access will be outlined in this area. 


We also encourage you to create opportunities for learning, arising from your child’s needs and interests. A favourite toy, book or show can be a goldmine for ideas! 

In Literacy, we will be focusing on Julia Donaldson books and suggesting ideas for how to get lots of learning and fun from them.


Lots of number exploration can come through all the lovely things you already have at home, and we'll be able to share some ideas to help with this.


We are especially lucky in Reception, as our observation tool ‘Evidence Me’,  can mean that we can keep in touch and you can  generate your own observations for teachers to see!
