Hello Reception, 


I have uploaded new tasks for today. Please do not worry if you find your child needs to rest today. Yet again, you have all done so well this week! We are SO PROUD of you all!! Also, a big well done to all the parents! You are all doing an amazing job! What you are doing is not easy, but rest assured your children are safe and still learning.


I am checking my emails daily, so please message me if you have any questions or concerns. I am happy to arrange zoom calls for those of you who would prefer to have a face to face conversation.


Our little people have good and bad days. When your child is having a bad day and they do not want to do any home learning, let them take a break. Have a look at the 'Fun Home Activities' documents. There are lots of other ways to engage your child in learning. When they feel calm and happy, try and complete some of the daily tasks. Please adapt them to suit your child's interest and with the resources and items you might be able to use within your home. You can also upload any home learning and fun your child has done, other than the work I set.


Mrs Shah will join us today during our morning Zoom sessions and will be leading some rainbow breathing and meditation this morning. So could you all please bring a teddy along to help you with this. I've missed not seeing you over the last couple of days. Looking forward to doing some rainbow breathing with you all. yes


Joke of the day:  What is a spaceman's favourite chocolate? A Mars bar! hehe cheeky


Stay safe, healthy and keep smiling smiley
