Welcome to Reception

Dear Parents, due to the school closure I wanted to let you know I was thinking about you all and keeping you in my prayers at this challenging time for us all. Keep safe and healthy in your homes and with your loved ones.

I have provided links to help you through Home Learning with your child. These will be updated every week and will include daily learning challenges in Phonics, Maths, the Creative curriculum and story tasks. (these can be found in the Online Learning tab above)

Please also ensure you are reading daily with your child, this will greatly help their development and is a special time to share together.

I have also attached the same documents to Tapestry and would really love to see the work and learning you are doing. Please upload photos or videos to your child’s profile for me to comment and give direct encouragement to your child. I can also answer here any questions you may have about your child’s learning and development. For any parent that has not activated their Tapestry account yet, please use the email I have recently sent you to activate it and to get online.

I really will miss you all and look forward to seeing lots of photos and videos on Tapestry of your continued learning at home. 

Warmest blessings

Mrs Shaw
