Welcome to Reception

Hello Reception,

Well done on last weeks home learning, you are all trying your best and I am super proud of you! 

I hope you managed to have some fun in the snow again the weekend. I really enjoyed seeing your snowmen and snow bears!  

We are now on week 3 of home learning and you are all becoming fantastic home learners. 

I really enjoy seeing what you are getting up to on Twitter and looking at your work on Education City and Purple Mash!

I ask that again you continue your super learning at home this week, I will be checking and will phone some more children this week. 

Remember to pop any work you are doing into a file and bring it into school with you when you return.

If parents are struggling to print out the sheets, please take a look at the task and draw/write out the activities for the children ,

it might even be more fun for them! Please remember to download the document to access the links attached.

Parents - I have uploaded a the whole of phase 2 phonic videos in a link below.

I ask that you revise these with your children throughout the week to support phonic revision. There is also a video to support parents with pronunciation and vocab - I hope this helps :) 

I also ask that children practise holding their pencil correctly - there is a video linked below to demonstrate pencil grip.

Children remember when we are forming our letters we always start from the top.

I will be keeping in touch with you again this week and checking you are working hard. 

Remember, take care, stay safe, have fun and work hard!!!

See you soon, 

Mrs Partridge x

Welcome to Reception! 

We once again thank you for your support and cooperation during these uncertain times and if your child is unable to attend school we encourage you to take part in home learning via our home learning grid, purple mash and Education City.

As always if you have any worries or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us, we are here to help and support! 


We value parent partnership and believe this is key to helping our children reach their full potential. 

Early Essence is the programme we use to track and assess learning within the foundation stage. All children have their own individual profile, please take a look and comment/add your own observations of your children.

   Thank you for your continued support
