Reception (F2) Learning Platform

All children have received their home learning packs. The home learning packs contain English, Maths, R.E and wider learning opportunities to work on at home, to ensure that every possible effort has been made for your child to continue their education at home. Each pack also contains a work book for the children to record all their work in. These will need to be returned to school when we open again as we will be looking for to seeing all the high quality work produced. 


This page will be updated every Monday with new learning tasks.
