Hello Reception,

If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch.

Thank you for all of your hard work.

Reading is so important and because we can’t send your books home at the moment we have a link for Oxford Owls which gives you access to all of the reading books we have in school.

The student login is:
username: receptionmelville
password: stmatthews

It is very important that your child reads at the correct level for them, please note teachers will be sending your child’s level out to you today via Class Dojo.

All children should only be reading the eBook Library for Letters & Sounds.

We ask that you fill in the reading log below with any books that you read at home and upload the completed reading log onto Class Dojo on a Friday, have fun reading!

Hello Reception! We hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready for your last week learning from home before we come back together in school next week!

Your virtual classroom has just been uploaded onto the class story and is attached below.

We have again written a suggested timetable for you to follow, it is only a suggestion so don’t feel like you have to stick to it. As always the virtual classroom contains activities for you to complete throughout the week.

Have fun and we can’t wait to see some pictures of the activities you have completed. X
