Reception CW Home Learning

Dear Parents,


We would like to thank you all so much for embracing the home learning activities in the way that you have with your children over the last few months.  We have been overwhelmed with the wonderful work that has gone on and this is all down to your hard work.  The children look like they have had lots of fun and it has been great to see them enjoying the challenges that we have set for them. 

We have had another wonderful week back in school and it has been lovely to see all the smiles and hear the laughter again in the classroom.  We were also excited to keep in touch with home learners and there has been some amazing work going on!

Next week is our final week in school.  We will be having lots of fun in the classroom!  We won't be adding any new activities to Seesaw but feel free to carry on with any work that is already assigned. 

We have got presents for all of the children that Miss McKibbin will keep safe until September and there is a final "Fantastic Friday" video to enjoy on Seesaw.

Mr Dentith has uploaded a 5 Ways to Well-being task on the home learning section of the web page that you can complete over the next couple of weeks if you wish.

All that remains now is for us to wish you all a wonderful summer!  It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you all this year and we wish you all the very best in Year One,

Lots of love and best wishes from,

Mrs Williams and Mrs Mercer xx
