Hello to our fabulous Reception children! 

We hope you are all well and keeping yourselves busy at home? Welcome to our new Virtual School page, somewhere for us to keep you updated on activities you can be doing at home together with your families. We can see that some of you have already logged into Purple Mash and Maths Shed and produced some great work, well done! 

Please look on this page regularly, as we will keep refreshing it with new ideas, links, resources and photographs for you. There should be caterpillar/butterfly and stick insect updates for you too, as we know how much you have enjoyed watching them grow this term.

Keep yourselves moving, hopefully, lots of you have been following Joe Wicks and Cosmic Kids at home - both things you know well from class already. What about Jack Hartmann, are you still singing along to his Maths videos to help you with your learning? This is time to shine Reception, show your families what we get up to in class!

Take care you lovely lot and we will keep you busy learning from a distance 🙂 

Love from

Mrs Butterfield and Miss Ayton
