Welcome to Reception's page. Here you will find out about what the children have been learning and how to access remote learning.

Google Classroom

All children have been set up with an account on Google classroom, their username and password can be found in their reading record.   Through this platform, they will be able to access work directly from their class teacher, upload their answers and receive feedback. There is also the facility for children to ask for help from their teacher if they are finding a piece of work difficult. In the event of a lockdown or self isolation, this is where the children will be directed to their daily work.
