School closure home learning resources

Dear Parents,
Whilst the school is closed, we will continue to provide a broad menu of activities for our learners.  The section below provides a list of learning platforms that can be accessed via the internet.  
For some of these platforms, your child will need a log in.  Children will have already been provided with these.   
During term time, teachers will provide  updates outlining which tasks they wish learners to complete. Alongside online learning platforms, there will be the usual home learning activities such as daily reading, maths fluency tasks (counting to 20, recognising numerals) and project homework.
You will be able to communicate with class teachers and support staff, in the usual way, via class dojo.  Any problems or queries then please do communicate with your class teacher via class dojo messaging.

Class Teacher Welcome 

Welcome to an exciting year of learning.  Our goal in Reception is to ensure children develop a love of learning and develop the passion and desire to explore the different areas of the early years curriculum. As this is their first year in St Lukes, it is important that children are equipped with the key characteristics of effective learning and taught the independence they need to complete their learning journey throughout the school. 

Thank you for visiting the class website. I hope you find this to be an invaluable resource to help keep you up to date on what is happening in the classroom and what is expected of students. 

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me via phone to the school, or class dojo.

Our class value is Safety

Then the land will yield its fruit, and you will eat your fill and live there in safety.

Class Dojo: Class dojo is a great way for children and parents to visually see the points they have earned throughout the week. The children can earn points for outstanding work or contribution in and outside of school. It is also a great platform for us to share the learning that is happening in our class for the week, as well as keeping you informed of any key dates and events. There is also a messaging section should you wish to speak to me about any concerns you may have throughout the year.

Should you have any concerns or would like to meet to discuss your child's learning, please feel free to schedule a time to meet after school.
