Welcome to Reception!
We hope that you enjoy using our website. You will find copies of our learning plans here to download. We also use knowledge organisers. These set out some of the key vocabulary we will be using, so that you can see what your child will be learning and support them at home. Our medium-term plan gives an overview of all that will be covered during the term ahead.
Learning at Home
On this page, you will find some activities that will help you with your learning at home. The 'learning grid' activities can be used to support your child. There are also links to websites that will help you with your learning.
Seesaw is our online learning platform, and this is used for daily learning and interaction between home and school. Please do not hesitate to contact the school office if you require any support in accessing your child's learning journal.

Listen to a Story
We have a growing library of stories that you may wish you to use with your child when learning at home. Some of them are familiar to children and link to nurture themes, such as anxiety, what to do with worries and other feelings and emotions. Others are well-known stories that children enjoy. We hope you enjoy sharing them together!
You can find the stories here:
During assemblies each day in school, children have opportunities to think, listen to stories and music and reflect on values such as friendship, peace, honesty and compassion. They have an opportunity to share in a prayer, or thinking time, if they choose to do so. If you would like to access an assembly at home, please use the link below and then enter the password 'palmsunday' when prompted.
Schools are required to allow time each day for an act of collective worship, and you can view our policy here:
|Assembly 1 - Classroom Worship|
On this page, you will find some activities that will help you with your learning at home. The learning grid accessible via the link below has been designed so that you can choose activities in any order. There are also links to websites that will help you with your learning.

We hope you enjoy completing the activities!

Each day, there are English, maths and other subject activities provided in a sequence, complete with videos. Your child can participate in all of these, free of charge, by accessing the relevant year group.

Virtual Maths Manipulatives
We use a range of practical resources in the teaching of maths, and you can learn more about our approach to teaching by following this link: http://www.themeadows.lincs.sch.uk/classes_and_learning/our_curriculum___assessment/maths.html
While at home, counters, small toys and dried pasta can be used for counting and representing numbers. You can follow the link below to access a range of counting resources on screen. We use physical versions of all of these in school, so we hope that they will prove to be a useful addition to maths learning sessions at home.
