Reception

Welcome to the Reception Home Learning Hub! Every Friday, we will be uploading new resources for your child to complete at home. These can be downloaded and printed or simply viewed online. In addition, this page also provides links to other websites and resources with ideas for delivering the school curriculum at home.

If you would like to work from printed resources, paper copies will be available for collection at the Oldknow Road reception on Wednesdays from 10am-1pm.

Communication

During periods of school closure, we have developed several methods for parents and staff to stay in touch:

  • Teachers call children in their class for a wellbeing check – please ensure you answer the phone for private numbers.
  • We use our Twitter account and Facebook page to share updates and useful links.  Make sure you follow us!
  • Subscribe to our YouTube channel to watch videos of staff reading stories, creating pieces of art, setting P.E challenges and even baking cakes!
  • To share pictures of the work you have been doing at home and be in with a chance of appearing in Mrs Twort’s weekly shout-outs or even feature on our website, please email primaryhomelearning@arkvictoria.org .
  • We are also celebrating birthdays and work you have sent to us in our weekly newsletter.  
  • You can earn house points by sending us your work or telling your teacher when they speak to you. Click here to see the weekly results.  Congratulations Zephaniah!

                                      

 

Subscription Resources

In order to support children when learning at home, we have invested in subscriptions to the following websites.  Please encourage your children to log on and complete activities as often as possible so that they retain important knowledge and skills.  For a full description of each website, please click here:   Subscription websites.pdf
