Meet virtually with Miss Giles

As we will be continuing to learn from home over the next couple of weeks we will be carrying out a google meet once a week in addition to completing seesaw activities. Google meet will allow all reception children and staff to meet with each other virtually in order to check in and give pupils the opportunity to speak with Miss Giles virtually and to see their friends.  


This will be carried out through your child's Hwb account. You were given a letter with your child's Hwb login details. Please follow the video instructions below to access their google classroom. Miss Giles will be in contact via Seesaw once all pupils are set up to let you know the date and time of the google meeting.

What is Seesaw? Introduction For Families

We will be starting to focus on our new whole school topic ‘Celebrations’ over the month of December. Reception class will be learning about St Nicholas Day. We will be learning about the importance of giving and caring for others. 


Learn some interesting facts about St Nicholas day here...


Flunkeblunk - Saint Nicholas is coming | for kids | Christmas time | Where are Flunks shoes?

It’s December 6th soon and Saint Nicholas will be coming! Poor Flunk forgot, so now he has to hurry home. He still has to clean his boots! But wait, does Flunk even have boots? Oh no!

Singing Hands: Up On The Housetop - Makaton Sign Language

As part of our 'Celebrations' topic we are learning the song 'Up on the housetop'.
Can you help your child to learn the Makaton actions to accompany the words at home.

To help Reception class become speedy mathematicians we will be completing regular CLIC Beat That assessments, you can help by practising these at home. 




1. Can you count to 7? 2. Can you count to 10? 3.Can you recognise these numbers? 4. Can you recognise these numbers? 5. Can you count the balls? 6. How many fingers do you have (without checking)? 7.Can you tell me double 1 and double 2 (practise putting 1 finger from each hand together, then two fingers from each hand together)? 8. Can you tell me half of 4/2 (practise taking one finger away this time, or two fingers away)? 8. What’s 1+1 (use fingers to support to start)? 10. What’s is 2 + 2? 


When your child gets ten out of ten three times they will then move onto  CLIC 2. 

An insight into RP's STEM week

Still image for this video

This term we have been celebrating STEM week (science, technology, engineering and maths). 

We Focused on the topic 'Animal magic' where we learnt about creepy crawlies, birds and animals that live in the woods. 


We had a special visit from ‘Into the wild animal encounters’...

 We carried out a science investigation to find out ‘what lives in the soil’. We made predications and found out if they were correct or incorrect! We found snails, worms and woodlouse!


We will soon by sending out some information about Home school learning.

If you need anything over the next few weeks please feel free to contact me through email:


Since starting school we have been learning about:

Teams, Dreams and Goals


To help us learn about our topic 'Teams, Dreams and Goals' we have listened to the story Mae among the stars and talked about how Mae dreamed she would be an astronaut when she grew up.  We have talked about our dreams and what we would like to be when we grow up and what teams we are a part of.


We also found out about the person the book is based on - Mae Jemison - the first black woman to travel to space in 1992.
