Hello to all Reception parents, carers and children!

We hope this update finds you all safe and well.

We hope you were able to access the home learning provided last week and that both you and your child have enjoyed completing the activities. These resources are being provided to support your child’s learning at home with lots of activities to keep your child busy! You can attempt to complete as many or as few activities as is manageable for you. If you have any questions, concerns or any difficulties accessing any of the home learning resources, please do let me know when we have our weekly phone call.
