It is very important to us that we maintain a strong connection with the children in Classes 1 and 2 during this unusal period of time. Therefore, if you have any photos of activities or creations which you wish to share, please email these to the class email address and we will post them on the Year R School Events Page on this website.

Parents, through out the school closure we will be setting daily maths and literacy activities to complete. We will also set phoincs activities to continue to build on the phonic knowledge the children have already learnt so far. Please don't forget to use the phoincs sheets the children have at home, in their folders, and the basic code.

*UPDATED* Useful Additional Resources To Support Home Learning

The DfE have announced the launch of daily online phonics lessons starting on Monday 27th April. These could serve as an additional activity to complete each day to support your child's reading. Please see the letter below for more details.
