Update 12.6.20 Hello Tigers! Just a quick update about what we have been learning at school and what has been made to support learning at home. If you go to the PARENTS section on the school website, then click HOME LEARNING, you will find the Reception section with a weekly plan and resources. The work set is based on a theme and a story. Over the next few weeks we will cover all the learning areas in the Early Years. This week our focus was physical development. At school the children completed some of the activities which are on the home learning plan. We had great fun in school this week and we have received some great pictures of home learning on 2Simple, FANTASTIC!. Thanks for sending in the pictures using 2Simple and please continue to do so. I have been really busy preparing activities for each week. They are all on the HOME LEARNING page. If you prefer a paper copies, they can collect be collected from school each Monday. Continue to keep in touch by using the class email.
Keep Safe and Keep Learning!
