Reception School Work for Remote Learning

We hope that all of our families are keeping  safe and well. Please find below the set tasks for children to complete at home during their period of isolation. Some tasks will be set as 2DO tasks on Purple Mash, others may involve practical activities, downloading documents or simply recording on a piece of paper. This work can be photographed and uploaded into the children’s work files on Purple Mash so that teachers can respond to the children. We have also added an additional table of optional activities and skills that are ongoing and can continue to support your child’s learning. Please do not hesitate to contact the school office if you would like to discuss this work with your child’s class teacher.

How to upload work onto Purple Mash

To share any work that you have completed at home, please take a photograph and up load it to Purple Mash. Your teacher will be able to see it and send you some feedback.
