Week 7

  Welcome to your FINAL week of your Reception Year and Home Learning!   

Our Reception 'Home Learning Menu' outlines the activities that we would like you to do at home this week: Mon 13th -Fri 17th July.

Supporting materials including images and downloads are also provided. 

The Daily Phonics activity set by Miss Lightowlers will be displayed below this.  

Staff are working in school and responses to e-mails, questions and queries that you have may take longer than you were previously used to - so please be patient and bear with us during this time.

We will add any evidence of your Home Learning that you send us on the morning of FRIDAY 17th July.
