Good morning Reception! Today is our last day of home learning activities before the summer holidays. We wanted to say a big well done to you all for taking on the challenges and doing such a brilliant job. We are so proud of you and all you have achieved over the last few months. We hope you have had a brilliant year in Reception and wish you all a wonderful, relaxing summer break!

Returning to School

For those of you who are planning to return to school soon, here is a little PowerPoint about returning to school, which may be useful to look at with your child. We hope you all had a wonderful first day back!

Mr Burbage has recorded two videos for you below. The first one is just to say hello, and the second one will show you what school will look like if you are returning. You might see a few friendly faces you recognise! Mr Burbage has sent a letter to parents with more details, so please do take a look on the Parent Hub.

Duckling Names

We were inundated with some fantastic name ideas for our 7 ducklings today- thank you to those who sent us their ideas and wrote them down too!
Our favourites are;
1. Flora
2. Max
3. Fuzzy
4. Jupiter
5. Dandelion Lovely
6. Sparkle
7. Rosie Alice

Thank you for your wonderful ideas, there was so much choice we had to start giving out middle names!

Duckling Facts!

We have been so impressed with all the different duckling facts you have sent us so far! Here are some of our favourites…
– Male ducks are called drakes.
– Ducklings believe the first large moving object they see is their mother and will follow her. This is called imprinting.
– Egg shells have tiny holes in so the ducklings can breathe.
– Ducklings do not have waterproof feathers so their mum has to help them.
– Ducklings live everywhere, but not in Antarctica!

We found this amusing video online this morning!
Have a watch, hopefully it’ll make you smile!

Monday 23rd March 2020

Hello Reception! We hope you have all had a lovely, restful weekend!
Are you enjoying your home learning pack so far?
Please bear with us this week, as we all get used to different ways of working. For now, please work through one or two of the activities in your home learning pack each day. Aim to do 1 Phonics and 1 Maths activity each day where possible, and 10 minutes of reading or sharing a story together.

We would love to see your work, so please email it to us. If you have any questions, or require any support, please also email our Year R team at:

We will also be checking Tapestry each day, so please feel free to update us and share your news/home learning using this too.

Ideas to support your EYFS child:

  • Read a story and talk about the characters
  • Practise phonics as often as you can
  • Practise counting
  • Talking about shapes and finding some in the home
  • Letter and number formation
  • Interact and play games
