Welcome to the Reception Class home learning page. Due to the school’s closure, we have had to explore different routes to provide education during these challenging times. Here, you will find our initial letter home with ideas for some work to be carried out, where possible, along with some support booklets, documents and links that will help to keep the progress going. We understand that it is important for young children to have the opportunity to learn through play and exploration so your child might not be able to complete everything. There will be regular updates with new content so do please keep checking in.

Best wishes at this difficult time.

For older nursery children, Ruth Miskin is delivering a daily phonics lesson, on YouTube. These sessions are differentiated for Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.


For younger nursery children try this: Can you find any bugs in your outdoor area? What would be a silly sound for that bug to make?



Watch the story of Superworm; talk about the parts of the story you liked best, what happened in the story and what might happen next.  You can find out all about worms by looking at the photo packs and video.  There are lots of different types of worm, some short and some long and they live in different places.  Talk about what you like about and what you do not like about worms
