This page contains planning, information and ideas for families of Reception age children who are self-isolating or are effected by school closures.
Each child has brought home a collection of resources and an exercise book. We have organised the activities into a suggested order, but we fully understand that people may be feeling unwell or unable to complete every task.
The activities, especially the daily phonics and maths tasks, are based on the curriculum that the children would have been following in school. Most activities will require adult supervision and this is especially true of activities which require internet research. All internet use should be supervised. Some activities require your child to step outside into their garden, again this should only be done if it is safe to do so.
The first week of activities is attached inside your child’s new Home Learning exercise book. Where possible we have suggested alternatives if resources are in short supply. For example, if you do not have dice we have provided a spinner that can be made with a pencil and a paperclip. Subsequent weeks of planning and activities will be posted here on the school website.
We suggest that children use the exercise book to build a scrapbook of evidence of the activities they have done. You may wish to take photos and print things out to add to the book, but there is no expectation that this will be the case. Work will not be marked in the traditional sense but it will be shared and discussed at an appropriate time once we return to formal school.
Also uploaded to this page is a list of websites and Apps that the children might enjoy and that will help to keep their learning going. This list will be added to as more links are researched and tested.
Thank you for all your kind messages of support and thanks - they mean a lot.
We hope all our families stay safe and well during this difficult time.
