Welcome to the Reception learning at home page


This page has been developed to support  families who are currently at home for a sustained period (due to self-isolation, social distancing etc). This page will be updated each week to ensure that your child has instant and immediate access to learning opportunities that are current and reflective of the learning that is taking place in school.  


During any time away from school, please do not feel under any pressure to complete all of the activities.  Find a routine that suits the needs of your family.  We cannot stress enough the importance of daily reading.  See below for 7 top tips to support reading at home.

What should I do if I see something upsetting online?

Stop – If you see something you don’t like, then don’t click on it. If something appears during a video

you are watching, close it.


Think – Remember, you are safe.  Don't answer any messages that are upsetting.  Only kind and sensible things should be shared online.


Share – TELL a trusted adult as soon as you can so that they can block and report anything upsetting.
