Remote Learning

All planning, resources and videos will be uploaded onto our new Learn site: 

You should already have your child's login details but if you have any problems please email early years directly.

When you login it should hopefully take you directly to our page, but if not click on 'Learn' then 'EY', you can then access each area of learning.

You can also upload any photos on the homepage that you would like to share with your teacher.


Dinosaur Day was so much fun! We made dinosaur bones and fossils! We will bury these in the sand so we can hunt for them too! 


What are we learning about?

Our projects for Spring Two are called Dangerous Dinosaurs and Puddles and Rainbows.

Here is our Learning Letter so you can find out all about some of the exciting things we will be getting up to together!

We have been so impressed with how the children have been learning during our phonics sessions!

We have sent out individual log-in details for the following websites to practise reading at home: - Phonics Bug


You have also been given a Reading Record Diary for you to record when you read at home with your child. This should be kept in their book bag and not at home. The children will earn reading rewards in school for reading or practising phonics three or more times per week at home.

Please read the attached letters for more information. If you have any questions, please talk to your child's teacher.
