Hi everyone! I hope you are all keeping yourselves busy at home, helping your grown ups and doing some home learning. If you are running out of ideas, here are a few links that might support you:
White Rose Maths are doing daily a 'Maths Party' on You Tube for each year group. We use their resources in school so they would be worth watching. Click on the link to their web page and there is a link to their home learning resources.
Click on Home Learning > Early Years
The National Literacy Trust have produced a 'Family Zone' on their website with ideas and links to other activities.
Another idea is to think of something you would like to find out more about and do a mini-project about it. You could read about your interest, look up facts on the internet and then draw and write about it. I would love to see your
mini-project work when I see you next! What will you learn about?
pirates? dinosaurs? robots? castles? different countries? the jungle? the sea?
Remember to keep practising your phonic sounds and numbers each day, as well as reading. There are videos of Mrs Aitken and Miss Chapman on the Home Learning section and on the school's Facebook page to help you practise your phonic sounds.
- Can you recognise all the numbers 0-20?
- Can you say '1 more' than numbers 0-20?
- Can you say 'one less' than numbers 0-20?
- Can you add two sets of objects together and write the number sentence (i.e.1+2=3)?
- Can you get some objects, take some away & find out how many left? Can you write the number sentence (i.e.3-2=1)?
- Can you double 1,2,3,4 and 5?
- Can you share some objects between members of your family? (i.e. 6 apples between 3 people - how many each?)
Don't forget to keep active too, Joe Wicks, Jumpstart Jonny and Cosmic Yoga are all on You Tube and worth looking at.
Finally, remember to keep being good for your grown-ups and help at home as much as you can. A huge thank you to grown ups, for everything you are doing with your Arctic Fox, just do as much as you can but above all just enjoy spending time playing and talking with them. Look after each other and stay safe.
I look forward to seeing you soon!

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well and being good for your grown ups at home! It has been a very long week without you all. I have been keeping myself busy by doing some work for school and doing work around the house. I have been keeping active by running each day and taking part in the Joe Wicks P.E. Have you had a go at that too?
I can't wait to see you all again!

P.S. Head over to Icicles page.. Mrs Aitken has a new addition to her family! I wonder if we can persuade her to bring Buddy to meet us all when we get back to school!
School has been super quiet without you all today! Mrs Wilkinson and I have missed you!
If you have play-doh at home or are able to make some using the recipe in the Home Learning pack, 'Spread the Happiness' are doing a Dough Disco Party every day on their You Tube channel at 9.30am and 1pm for you to join in with.
They also have a list of 100 things to do Indoors - see how many you can tick off whilst you're at home!
Keeping active is super important, especially when we are indoors for a significant amount of time. Exercise can have a huge positive impact on our mental health and so I will be taking part in Joe Wicks' 'P.E. with Joe' and I hope you do too!
See if you can count how many of each exercise you do with Joe.
I will be in touch soon,
Miss Taylor xx
We have been extremely busy over the festive period in Reception. We decorated our class Christmas Tree, made crowns to wear during our Christmas Lunch, took part in the Early Years Christmas Concert, decorated cakes for our stall at the Christmas Fayre, partied for a WHOLE DAY(!!) and went to the Hullabaloo Theatre.
We have had an amazing first term.
Merry Christmas x
We talked about how we celebrated Bonfire Night in School. We all had lots of different stories to tell! Some of us made paintings and pictures of fireworks using different materials in the Art Area.
We celebrated the Diwali Festival in our first Autumn half term at school. We read the story of Rama and Sita as a class, made Diva Pots using clay with Miss Taylor and were able to create our own Rangoli Patterns.
We have been extremely busy throughout Autumn Term, getting to know each other and getting to grips with the different areas of our indoor and outdoor classroom. Here are photographs of just some of our learning.
Welcome to Arctic Foxes' Class Page!
Class Teacher: Miss Taylor
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Wilkinson
We have really enjoyed our first week at School, settling in, making new friends and exploring the areas of the classroom.
Photos of our learning are coming soon!
