Reception Remote Learning Page

This page has a range of activities your child can complete at home if they are isolating and will be updated each week. You will also see our class timetable below, which we encourage families to follow as best as possible. If your child is isolating, we will offer to zoom with your child each day to join in with our phonics lesson. This will be at 10:15am from Monday to Thursday and at 8:40am on a Friday. If you are unable to zoom, a member of staff will contact you each day to have a brief catch-up with your child. 

Don't forget that you can pick a paper work pack up from the school entrance each Friday.  

If you have any questions regarding remote learning, please do not hesitate to contact us:
