Happy home learning,

Miss Edmundson J


As the school is temporarily closed, it's now compulsory that children continue with their learning at home. Please find below, a timetable that will guide you through the home learning, this is very similar to the one that we have in school in order to keep consistency for the children. However, it is just a guide, if you have your own timetable and it works for you, then continue with that. 


In the morning, daily phonics sessions will be delivered via zoom, you will get a separate email discussing what group your children are in. If this time doesn't work for you then email in and we will change you to another group at a time that is more convenient for you. Pre-recorded Maths and English sessions will up loaded onto the class page to support the children's learning, along with a daily task for the children to complete. In the afternoon, there will be an opportunity for children to choose from a range of topic-related activities.


There will be exercise books at the office for you to collect for your child to complete their learning in. We would love to see how the children are getting on, please upload completed work to 'Evidence Me'. Alternatively, you can send work to the class email This email will be checked on a daily basis during usual school hours and feedback will be given to the children. Should you have any enquiries please feel free to email for guidance.


We have endeavored to make the learning as engaging and enjoyable as possible and we look forward to seeing all the children's amazing work!


Happy learning!

Weekly Timetable

Zoom Meeting Timetable

A big hello and warm welcome to all the new boys and girls who have started school. Also a very warm welcome to our parents. We hope that this year is going to be filled with lots of fun, curiosity, exploration and independent learning. It is important that your child settles into school life and feels safe. 


During the first few weeks the foundation stage team will be observing and talking to your child to get to know them and also make a baseline assessment so that we know what your child can already do and what they need to work on. Once this has been completed teaching and learning will begin.


Your child will be part of a house-Towneley, Queens, Scotts or Thompson. They will be given house points during the day for good work, being kind and helpful or anything else that needs to be recognised. We also have a behaviour chart so during the day your child may move onto a bronze, silver or gold medal. In the event of unacceptable behaviour your child may be shown a yellow card. If their behaviour then improves they will go back to the start of the behaviour chart. In the rare event of the behaviour not improving a red  card will be shown and a text will be sent to you to inform you of this behaviour. 

The reception class curriculum is very exciting and very hands on. We use a lot of resources such as ingredients for cooking and other items used for interesting mark making and items for topic work which in turn will help to improve fine motor control, aid mathematical development, language development and also improve creativity. We try our best to ensure children wear suitable aprons for the very messy activities but sometimes the children may forget or their aprons unfasten. I apologise in advance for any messy clothes! At least you know they are having fun ! smiley
