Our first week back in Reception only 'pods' has gone really well. For RJB, Mrs Baldwin is based in her usual half of the Reception classroom with one pod, alongside Miss Vines on the other side (usually Miss Campbell's side) with a furniture barrier down the middle to keep us safely in our separate pods. Meanwhile for RSC, Miss Campbell is based over in the year 6 classroom (Miss Pearson's side), with Mrs Marsden on the other side (usually Miss Dhesi's room).
Some more of you will be joining us on Monday and for those still at home we will be continuing to provide the home learning Tic Tac Toe grids and phonics planning. We are fully aware of the difficulties with working from home as well as home schooling - so please just pick and choose which activities suit you and your situation best. If you prefer there are alternate suitable lessons available on the National Academy website. For a change you may also want to choose something from Numberblocks or Alphablocks to watch.
For the children who are back in, we may not cover all the activities set on the Tic Tac Toe for next week, as we will be settling them in and teaching them the new rules at school. Some of the activities on the Tic Tac Toe grids involve practical equipment that we are not allowed to have out at school for safety reasons. There are some useful videos to watch if you are coming back to school - please click on the rainbow icon for the 'returning to school' section.
We look forward to either seeing you in class or in the lovely photos that you keep sending to us!
