Hello everyone,

We know that the next few weeks and possibly months may be a difficult time for some of you and your children; we are here to support you in any way we can. Apart from the activity packs which will be available to collect from the school office - you will receive a parent mail message whenever a new pack is ready to collect - all of our correspondence with you will be through Tapestry. All learning will be sent home on Tapestry and we will check the home learning observations that you upload regularly and respond to them. Please contact us through Tapestry if you need support with ANYTHING, we are here to help and guide you through this.  


We will also be sending home little videos and challenges on Tapestry so that your children can still see us and of course when you upload your observations, we can see their little faces too! We are going to miss them very much and hopefully this will make us all feel a little closer and happier. 


Please remember to look after yourselves too! Be kind to yourselves, if your children are not ready for home learning one day then focus on doing what they love to do, enjoy your time with them, have lots of cuddles and then focus on some home learning on another day when they are ready for it. Most children love being read to, playing board games, playing eye spy, playing outside on their bikes, skipping, running, baking, hunting for bugs etc and all of these things are fabulous learning opportunities in themselves.  


We cannot to wait to see all of the home learning, fun, playing, games and walks that your children have been enjoying with you. We really look forward to looking at their Tapestry observations! 


We are going to miss your wonderful children so much; keep in contact, keep safe and ask for support when you need it.


With our very best wishes,

The Reception team

Our 30 years of the United Nation's Convention on the Rights of a Child celebration morning

Our 30 years of the United Nation's Convention on the Rights of a Child celebration morning 1

We had such a fun morning celebrating 30 years of the UNCRC. We looked at:

Article 24- You have the right to medical care if you are poorly. We had first aid kits, bandages and plasters and helped to look after our friends.

Article 31- You have the right to play. We all played in the classroom with our friends.

Article 27- You have the right to be healthy. We did extra 'Fit for Learning' exercises and made delicious fruit kebabs for our snack.

Article 13- You have the right to be listened to. We had a lovely circle time where all of the children chose what they wanted to share with their group.

We all dressed in rainbow colours for the day and made a super rainbow out of ourselves.
