Update for week beginning 18th January 2021

As we said in the Awards Worship, this week you have all been brilliant! Thank you for being sympathetic during any technical glitches that have happened this week too! Net week, we are looking forward to seeing the children during live lessons each morning and you will also be able to watch pre recorded lessons each day.

Additionally, on a Wednesday morning, the live lesson will be with a smaller group of children which will give children the opportunity to interact a little bit more with their friends. You will receive an invite on Tuesday for this session but please check the lesson start time as it may be slightly different to usual.

Curriculum Information

Danny and Sammy will be visiting Australia this week!


The children will be writing an animal acrostic poem. They will apply their phonics through writing in a different way and this will be revealed during the live lesson on Tuesday.


We will be looking at addition. We will combine groups using practical resources and dots. We will also be looking at the numbers 6, 7 and 8 and how the numbers can be made using smaller numbers.


The link below shows recommended picture books for children to read during the Reception year. We will be picking books from this list for shared reading.

You now have access to Oxford Owl. Use the class login provided to access a range of books, both fiction and non-fiction, to share with your child.

Next week, look out for our snack time stories each day on Tapestry. Adults from Reception will be reading a story for the children to enjoy at snack time.
