Week beginning 6th July 2020


Hello Reception,

I hope you are all well and working hard at home! 
The weather hasn't been that great this week so you probably haven't been able to play outside. 

Many thanks to the children who sent in their virtual sports day videos and photographs both myself and the children in Bubble 3 greatly enjoyed watching them. If you want to have a look visit our class page on the school website. 

This week our mini-beast theme is spiders and we have 3 great books for you to look at.

Our maths topic is sharing - you can complete lots of practical activities at home  eg sharing sweets, biscuits, toys - but make sure they are shared fairly ie everyone has to have the same amount!

We are all missing you at school and can't wait to see you again.

Have a great week.

Miss Martin.

Hello Reception,

I hope you have had a nice week and enjoyed the sunshine.
It doesn't look like the weather is going to be very nice this week - but it should be dry for our 'sports day' on Tuesday. Please send in your photographs - we will be completing lots of different activities in my Bubble 3 and I will put the photographs on our class page.  I wonder what activities you will complete - I can't wait to see your photographs.


Many thanks to the parents who sent in their children's work - I like seeing what you are doing at home.


We are all missing you at school.

I hope you like this week's activities.

See you next week.
