Reception Home Learning


Please find below some learning websites which you and your child can access while your child is in isolation or accessing remote learning at home.


If your child is self-isolating, a two week 'Isolation Education' learning pack is available for your child. A detailed two-week plan of learning will be emailed out to you and you can access all videos and resources via Tapestry.


If your child's class bubble collapses and they are sent home to self-isolate, your child will access our ‘Remote Learning’. Remote learning information and guidance will be emailed out to you. In Early Years, at set times during the day, we will use Tapestry to deliver daily teaching videos, communicate with children and parents and provide feedback.


Please contact our school office if:

- you have difficulty accessing your Tapestry account

- your child is eligible for Free School Meals,

- you do not have the IT facilities to access home learning or to print out activities and worksheets.




Alphablocks on BBC iPlayer features a range of videos focused on reading skills. Your child should be familiar with lots of the featured sounds!




Similarly, Numberblocks on BBC iPlayer features a range of interactive videos to develop children’s early number skills.
