Reception 2021 - 2022

Mrs Jessop


Dear Parents,

Welcome to our Reception class . We hope that you and your children will have a very happy time this academic year. The children have settled in and have  been working very hard in the Autumn term and both myself and Miss McMillan are very proud of all the children in Reception. 


Below are a few websites that you can use at home to support your child's learning. 


Phonics play This website has good resources for reading and phonics it is free to use. The children can play great games on here. 

Username: march 20 Password: home

Oxford Owl   A great website for the children to read books on line. 




Playdough recipe Here is a great playdough recipe for you to make at home. If you do not have food colouring just make it without it is still great to use.

Dough Disco    Great for fine motor skills and just dancing. This link takes you to dough disco singing days of the week.

Speak up Salford This is a speech and language website which has some good ideas about how you can help your child with their speech and understanding of words. 

Music Out of the Ark Music

This website has music on for the children to listen to and sing along to. It also has other activities to do with music
