Good Morning Reception Class,

Hello Everybody,

Here are some addition worksheets for you to complete. One worksheet is adding to 20 and one is adding to 10.

Mrs Holden

One of the biggest goals in Reception is for the children to become independent learners. We ask that you continue to practice writing and recognising their name, writing numbers, counting, using cutlery,  dressing and undressing. These skills are lifelong skills that are essential for all children.

Dear Parents and Carers,

Please find attached a transition book, ‘All about me,’ which the children need to complete over the summer holidays. There is also a Summer Holiday booklet attached. Please help your child complete this work, so that it can be handed into their class teacher on the first day of the new term.


Top Tips for Children.

  • When you are writing your sentence, remember to Think it, Say it, Write it and Read it.
  • When you are writing your sentences, remember to start your sentence with a capital letter and end it with a full stop.
  • Remember your finger spaces.
  • Children, those of you that write with your other hand (left hand) when you want to use your finger spaces you need to say to yourself, ‘One rabbit…..two rabbits,’ then take your finger off and write your word.
  • Keep looking at your high frequency words and use some of these in your writing.

Keep looking at your numbers, making sure that you are writing them the correct way round. Practice writing your adding and taking away number sentences.

Children, you have all worked really hard this year. It has been a strange couple of months for you all. You have adapted so well and  we are very proud of you!  Enjoy your summer holiday break with your families and continue to enjoy your learning. I look forward to seeing you all in September, when you are in year One.

You are Superstars!!


Thank you very much parents and carers for your support over the past academic year. Thank you for all your hard work, and for all that you have done to support your children during these challenging times. Wishing you all a restful, safe and enjoyable summer.

Stay safe and take very good care of yourselves and families.

Ms Duah and Mrs Yerrill

Dear parents and carers of Reception class,


On Monday 22nd June 2020 the children in Reception class will be returning to school from Monday-Thursday. I do appreciate that not every single Reception child will be returning to school for this half term and fully understand that there are very good reasons for this.


The school will be closed on Fridays.

Our aim in the few weeks of this half- term is to ensure (even with social distancing measures in place) that the children have an enjoyable time with us and learn to re-socialise and familiarise themselves with the new routines. 


The daily work activities will continue to be posted onto the Reception class school website page, for the children not in school to complete at home.


The children will be split into ‘bubble’ groups. Bubble group A ‘Jellyfish’ will be working with Ms Duah along with Mrs Yerrill from Monday- Thursday and will be in based in the Reception classroom.


Bubble group B ‘Octopus’ will be in the Nursery classroom working with Mrs Holden on Monday and Tuesday. Mrs Agu on Wednesday and Thursday. Mrs Edwards will be working alongside both teachers from Monday-Thursday.


The children’s hours in school (which must be strictly adhered to – please ensure punctuality) will be as follows:

Bubble group A ‘Jellyfish’ – Drop off time 9.00am

Pick up time 3.15pm.


Bubble group  B ‘Octopus’- Drop off time 9.15am

Pick up time 3.30pm.


Parents will be able to drop and collect their children just outside the school gates by the Nursery entrance. When collecting or dropping off your child please observe the social distancing rules. There are markings on the pavement to help you to stay 2m apart. The children will line up with their parent/ carer and wait to be called onto the school premises by the teachers. Parents will not be permitted to go past the main gate entrance into the Nursery entrance. 


We look forward to welcoming you and the children back to school. Over the weekend please continue to talk to your child about the importance of handwashing. Watch the Tapestry videos that the Early year’s team have made for the children explaining all about returning back to school.


We look forward to seeing the children’s bright and happy faces on Monday.


Thank you for your continued support.


Ms Duah, Mrs Yerrill

Hello Reception class:)

You have all worked really hard this term.

Next week is half-term week so I will not be setting you daily activity tasks to do.

For your homework I would like you all to have a really good rest and enjoy spending time with your families!

I cannot wait to hear all about your adventures hopefully after half- term. When we can all be back together again safely in our classroom. Keep sharing your adventures on Tapestry.

Continue to say your prayers. For the Holy Rosary we will be looking at the Sorrowful Mysteries during half-term week. I have attached a different prayer for each day for you to have a look at. You might like to say a prayer each day with your family.

Stay safe and take good care of your families.

Lot’s of Love,

Ms Duah :) x

Summer term Update:

Dear Parents/Carers,

I trust that you are well and had a lovely Easter with your Superhero children,

Thank you so much for your continued support. I am missing walking out in the mornings, seeing the children and hearing their excited greetings. I miss their eagerness to tell me what they have bought in to show or what they have been doing.

These are strange times and thank you for teaching the children, while I am unable to do so. I will continue to upload a set of activities each day to help you keep the children busy and also give structure to the day. You know your children better than anyone 'you are your children's first teachers'. Do what works best for you and your family. Please remember that the Early Years Curriculum children learn through play; learning is fun! Please do not worry if they are finding the activities difficult. I always say to them"try your best because you are the best" I want to reassure you that you are all doing a great teaching job.

Reading is so important, whether it is reading independently or sharing stories together. I will include some links that will help you to access online books and audio books. Please continue to share your child's home learning on their Tapestry learning Journal. It has been lovely seeing the children's home learning on their Tapestry page.

Enjoy this extra time you have with your children at home.

Wishing you all good health and happiness. You are in my thoughts daily.

Best Wishes,

Ms Duah

Hello Reception class,

We miss you!

We are having a really nice time living in Ms Mackay's garden at the moment. As you can see we are doing our daily exercise, my snail children are growing just like all of you. We cannot wait to see you all very soon so that you can continue to look after us in Reception class. We always love it when you give us our daily spray of fresh water and our yummy food of cucumber, Lettuce and apples. Yesterday me and my children had a great snail race and today we are going to have another one too. As you can see we are just preparing for it!

Look after yourselves and your families.

Lot's of Love, 

Brownee and Snail Children xx
