Week beginning 11.01.21


Dear Parents and Carers,


Another successful week of Home learning. The Tapestry observations that you are adding have been informative and enjoyable to see. It is useful for us to know the level of support your child has received when completing the activities. Please don’t feel you must upload multiple observations every day. We are happy to receive daily or even weekly summaries of your child’s work and reading.

Teachers will continue to meet via Teams with small groups of children. The purpose of these meetings is for children to have contact with their friends and teachers and interact in games or learning activities as a group. Please let us know in advance if you have any problem with the allocated times, so we can add your child to a different group.

Meetings for Caterpillars and Hedgehogs on Wednesdays have been changed. Please check your email for details and get in touch if the new times are not convenient.

This week the meeting times will be:







RF: 1.00pm






RM: 1.30pm







Additionally, one teacher is available on Teams daily from 9.30am to 10.30am and 2.00 and 3.00pm. During these times we can support children with learning activities or parents with the Home Learning suggestions.

We have had lots of positive comments about the Bug Club reading resource. It would be great to make the most of this resource. If your child reads a Bug Club book online make sure they click on the bug icon (usually at the end of the book) and answer the question, this will register the book as having been read and will allow the child to make progress through the levels.

School Reading books will again be available for collection on Monday at 9.00am from the front of the school. As we do not have a large surplus of books, it is becoming difficult to select new books for every child when some have not been returned. Therefore you will only have new books to collect if your child’s books were already returned to school.

Many thanks for labeling returned books with your child’s name it helps enormously.

Next week, please continue to work through the ‘Home Learning Ideas – Week 3.

Phonics lessons – the links to the DfE Phonics videos for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will be uploaded as they become available.

We hope any login issues have now been solved but please get in touch if you are still having difficulties.


Thank you for your continued support,


Reception Team
