Welcome to Reception Class Page

It is great to have you all back in school although it feels quite different to what we are used to.  Due to COVID-19, we know and understand that people may need to self-isolate and/or bubbles may have to close.  Fortunately, this should not impact on learning as we will keep you updated with what we are learning in school and provide you with work to do at home if you need to isolate but are not unwell.  Work will be set on Tapestry, so it is important that parents have the app!

Please see the summary of our learning below which will be updated every week.

Miss Cordingley and Mrs Wood

Get Going in Reception

If you are at home self isolating and you are well enough to be busy with some learning we would like you to go onto Tapestry to see what work your teacher has set for you.  If you can't, or it doesn't work for you, below this section is what your class are learning this week so see if you can match what you are doing to on here.  if you are REALLY stuck and your can't do either of those things, here is your 'Get Going' sheet with ideas of things that are always good to work on.

Online Safety

Leeds Prevent: Online Safety Information for Parents

'With many of our children currently off school and staying home due to COVID 19 the potential for online exploitation will be at its highest.
Although rare, there is a risk that with increased online activity, feelings of stress and isolation may be exploited. An understanding of digital safety will help parents and carers safeguard loved ones from a range of harms, whether that’s child sexual exploitation, fraud, or extremist influences seeking to radicalise vulnerable people.' 
Click on the Leeds Prevent link above for more essential information.

Other internet safety information: During the school closures, children will be using apps and different websites for their learning and games. Using computers is fun and interesting but it is very important to make sure apps and websites are safe before children use them. Use the link below for useful information and games for your children to be reminded about being safe online
