If you have any questions regarding the tasks set, please email your child's class teacher using the following email  Teachers will endeavour to reply to every parent as soon as possible. These are unprecedented times so please continue to be patient if we are unable to respond immediately to any questions about home learning activities set.  It is very important that you contact your class teacher at least once a week by Thursday morning to let them know you are OK and how your child is coping with the work set.

Keep reading phase words attached. Please work though them a page a day. Children need to decode and blend them together as quick as they can. Every bit of practise helps.


This week’s game:  Phonics bloom – Yeti

When you start the game you will see the Yeti’s question at the top of the page. On one side of the Yeti is the word “Yes” and on the other side is the word “No.” The child reads the question by sounding out and blending the words, and then answers the question by clicking on either “yes” or “no.”.


This week it is related to the story Snail and the Whale. It would be great to see some evidence of the different activities.



This week we are looking at sharing and halving. Below shows what children should be able to do by end of Reception.

Children love being praised and encouraged and also enjoy a visual reminder of how well they are doing in class. Do Jo's are points that are counted on the interactive whiteboard. Do Jo's are rewarded for good work, effort, manners, excellent reading, being kind to others and many more. 

Do Jo's can also be taken off the score if children don't follow school rules. 

The challenging target is to receive 20 in a week. Children who achieve this get a reward from the treasure box !
