The ‘Remote Learning’ School Day for Reception - Thursday

In order to keep the day as familiar as possible for children, we will be following the same timetable during each day of remote learning:


9.00 - 9.30: Registration

Please log onto teams and enter a live lesson with your teacher who will take the register. The daily timetable will then be shared with the children followed by Dough Disco, scavenger hunt, word of the day and ‘hold a sentence’.  


9.30 - 10:00: Physical Activity

Please see activity link below. We appreciate that you may also want to go outdoors for your daily exercise.  (Joe Wicks)
