Welcome to Willow
Miss Glover - Teacher
My name is Miss Glover and I am the Willow Class teacher together with Miss Monks and Miss Smart we encourage children to learn and develop through play, by exploring being active and creative and above all by having lots of fun!
Due to school closure please see Home Learning folder below for all Reception children. Tapestry will also be updated regularly with challenges and activity ideas.

Isolation is very difficult for all of us and it is especially hard for children to understand and adjust to what is happening. I have attached a link in the home learning file that is a short animation that explains COVID-19 to children. The most important thing is that your child feels happy, safe and secure at home and with the situation.
Reception children will get so much out of spending quality time with parents and partaking in activities such as baking, gardening and play. If possible it would help your child to read with them daily and recap Phase 2 and Phase 3 phonic sounds. Half an hour a day would make a huge difference. Children also need to be confident with their numbers 1-20 and 'know them inside out'. Fifteen mins on maths a day. It doesn't have to be formal it could be a game or activity for example a game of snakes and ladders uses number recognition, counting, forwards and backwards and skills such as turn taking. Please check the Home Learning file for further advice on Phonics, reading writing and maths.
Remember to have fun and take some time to relax and enjoy family time. Stay home, stay safe and keep washing those hands.
