Spring term 2021

Welcome to Bubble 1 Reception Home Learning Page

The guidance and activities, outlined below, have been created to help support your child with home learning. We appreciate every family is unique and faces their own challenges and wish to support you as best we can. Whatever suggestions we have made, you have the freedom to make this work in a way that is best for you and your family.

As we enter lockdown we are offering children the opportunity to participate in live streamed lessons. As a teaching staff we have worked together to try and minimise overlap with other classes to support families with more than one child in school. However, as you will appreciate this is not always possible. Timings will be reviewed and updated on a weekly basis. We encourage your child to attend as many of these sessions as is possible. The timetable for Bubble 1 Reception  children is below with the live sessions clearly marked in red. Your child will need to log onto their Microsoft Teams account and click the link in the posts to join the lesson.

On this page you will find all the resources you need for the lessons outlined in the timetable, including any resources needed for the live lessons. We aim, where possible, to make these activities as practical as possible and where recording is needed it can usually be done on paper by viewing the worksheet on the screen therefore not requiring printing. If you have any issues regarding resources needed please let us know.

Please remember that the Reception year is less structured than other years so you will see more free choice time built into each day's timetable. Children learn many things through play so please enjoy this time together with your child to develop their creativeness, their self confidence, role play and building relationships understanding the principles of taking turns and sharing.

If you can, capital letters and full stops too.
