Remote Learning

Please find below the EYFS remote learning document. Please use this document if your child needs to self-isolate due to COVID-19. The activities below will cover the first 2 days of remote learning and then I will contact you with further work.

If the situation should arise where the whole class needs to isoalte, we shall revert back to the remote learning system used during lockdown. We will also return to our daily Zoom lesson and learning tasks will be uploaded onto School Spider.

Remote Learning Document- Immediate Activities



Learning to read is one of the most important skills your child will learn in the Early Years. The more children read, the more confident and fluent they will become, so one of the most important things you can do at home is encourage your child to read every day. The expectation in Acorns is that children read with an adult at least 5 times a week. Please sign and write a comment in your child’s reading diary when they read. Your child will read regularly to an adult in school, so reading books need to be sent into school every day. Reading books will be issued on a Friday and collected back in the following Wednesday. 



Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE Kit on the days they have PE. Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Children will not need to bring their uniform to school as they will stay in their PE kits all day.



Reception are given the opportunity to learn outdoors every day whatever the weather so please ensure that your child has a waterproof coat, preferably with a hood in school every day.


Fruit and Milk/ Water

Please do not send water bottles into school. Reception children have fruit, milk and water provided. The children will have access to water throughout the day using disposable cups.
