Welcome to Reception/Year 1

Willow and Maple class 



Remote Learning for Spring 2 2020


During the lockdown weekly overviews for the home learning for Willow and Maple classes will be uploaded below. These will outline the home learning for Maths, English, Phonics, Reading and a topic activity linked to our topic - Why is Winter wonderful? 


We understand that parents may have multiple siblings at home during a time of lockdown and may also be expected to work from home themselves, therefore we have attempted to create tasks for the children that take no more than 20 minutes to complete. All your child will require to access the activities is internet access for videos and stories, practical objects for our maths sessions and a pencil and some paper. 


We kindly ask parents to capture a minimum of one Maths and one English activity along with one other activity completed from another area of learning (you can choose from phonics, reading, topic) along with an example of your child writing their own name.  We ask that you upload images of your child’s work via their child’s Seesaw profile no later than Thursday 6pm. The activities that we would like you to upload are indicated on the weekly overview. Staff will post comments on these uploads each week by Friday. Any work submitted later than this deadline may not receive a response until the following week.


During a lockdown period it is increasingly difficult to provide books from school as we aim to minimise the risk of further spreading the virus. Therefore we would encourage parents to use the Oxford Owl reading site to access the schools reading system. The link is below and allows the children to continue reading at the correct book banded colour free of charge.  You may also choose to video your child reading each week and share this with their class teacher. Please also see the ongoing lockdown reading activity on Seesaw.


Thank you for your support with home learning during this difficult time.

Miss O'Donnell and Miss Dethick.
