Dear Parents/Carers,

Our Reception Newsletters will be posted here by Friday each week to let you know what's up and coming.  Please do check in each week as paper versions will no longer be issued. 

If your child is isolating we have posted some information below for phonics and maths.  The phonics pack follows our scheme for Twinkl Phonics and will teach the new sounds that will be taught in school.  The powerpoint should take ten minutes and they will need your support to access this. Alongside this is a parent guidance sheet and a game to play.  For maths we will provide either links to some online activities, or, the Numberblocks episode that we will be watching together in class together with a short powerpoint to encourage the children to talk about what they learn.  Please see the newsletter to find out what we are teaching in class each week.  You might like to explore the topic with your child at home.






Useful websites

You will be provided with a login for Discovery Education.  There are a range of videos to watch for phonics, looking at the sounds that the children have learnt. For each of the sounds here are lots of games to play in the activity section, including blending and segmenting words and linking the picture to the correct initial sound.

For some online books to read please see You can register yourself as a parent and access an array of e-books in the library.  

We also have an SEND page on our website with some activities that some of you may find useful, particularly for speech and language ideas.
