Here are a variety of links and activities to support Reception pupils and parents when learning at home. If you have any queries, please contact Miss Bishop at or Mrs Parsons at (weekdays between 8.30am-3pm)

Hello everybody! We hope that you had a fantastic week thinking all about the story ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’! We really enjoyed making yummy milkshakes in school! Thank you for all of the photographs that we have had sent in, we love seeing what you’ve been getting up to! The story this week is ‘The Dinosaur Who Pooped a Planet!’ I know that you will love this story and I am sure that you will find it a little bit silly! 😊 Below is the timetable and a little video talking you through the week. There are also some extra resources that I have found that link to the story. Hope that you have another fab week and enjoy reading all about Danny and his dinosaur! 💚


















Week 11 Home Learning

Dinosaur that pooped… activities

Hello Reception. I hope you enjoyed last weeks learning all about Zog. This week’s text is Oliver’s Vegetables. All about a little boy who loves chips but doesn’t like vegetables. I wonder how many of you like your vegetables!

Summer Week 10


Hello to our Reception superstars! I think you’re going to LOVE the home learning story for this week! It’s definitely one of my favourites! This week, our learning is all linked to the story ‘Zog’! Zog tells the tale of a clumsy young dragon, the keenest pupil in the class, who longs to win a gold star at Dragon School. No matter how hard he tries at learning to fly, roar and breathe fire, he can never get the gold star! We hope that you have lots of fun reading the story and using some of the ideas and suggestions in the home learning pack to help to structure your week. Please remember that these ideas are just suggestions, you can choose to do a little or as many as you like and you can also think of your own fun ideas! Below is the timetable, video and the home learning pack. I have also found some ‘Zog’ resources made by organisations such as Forestry England, feel free to use these during the week! Enjoy and please keep sending in those photos! 😃

Summer Week 7 Home learning

A little message from Miss Moss…

Hi Everyone, I know how much you enjoy our Open the Book assemblies. We haven’t been able to have them recently have we? So… Reverend Stone and the Open the Book team decided that they would make a Zoom version. So here’s the Open the Book version of Jesus and the Storm. The story has the wonderful theme of Peace. Why don’t you send in your thoughts about it? You could paint a picture to go with it or write a poem or just tell us which was your favourite bit. I hope you all enjoy it.

Love from Miss Moss

Hello Reception. We are very excited to welcome some of you back into school this week. If you are not coming in do not worry. You can keep up with what we are doing in school on here.
