Good Morning Everyone!

I hope and pray that you are all safe and well. Today will be the last home learning posted online for now as it would appear we return to business as usual tomorrow, as we return to school smiley.


So, until then, please take care and above all else stay safe!

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Love Mrs Lakin & Mrs Bundy


Morning Prayer in Reception

Each morning we light a candle and say our daily prayers...


(Let's make the sign of the cross)

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen


Father in Heaven you love me, you are with me night and day,

I want to love you always, in all I do and say,

I'll try to please you Father, bless me through the day, Amen


Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee,

Blessed art though amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus,

Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death, Amen


Let Trust Respect and Love Live Here, Amen


(sign of the cross)


Our Advent Song just before opening the new advent window on our Advent Tree

(the children should remember the tune):


Count down to Christmas, Advent is here,

Open a window and see what appears,

Is it an angel, stocking or tree,

So, open the window what do we see?

Well, what a year it has been! When we started back in September, little did we know what was soon to launch itself on our precious world! It has been very difficult for us all in many different ways and we will, I'm afraid, still face challenges ahead. However,you have all been amazing! It has been a pleasure teaching your lovely children this year and I wish them and you, all the luck in the world, as you move onto the next chapter of your lives.

Both myself and Mrs. Allcock will miss you all very much! XX

Good morning everyone!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and managed to get out and about despite the changeable weather! This week we carry on with our vehicle 'under the sea', we are also going to look at time (today, tomorrow, yesterday) and the clock face. There will be lots of writing opportunities, daily phonics practise supporting reading, spelling, writing and important letter formation using the pre-cursive font.

Have a fabulous week!

Let's hope the weather improves a little, though I always say...everyday is a God given beautiful day, rain or shine.

Take care, stay safe,


Kindest regards,


Mrs. Lakin

Welcome back everyone.

I hope you are all keeping safe and well. This week we will continue with our vehicle 'under the sea', do lots of writing and we will carry on learning about money. Don't forget, do not hesitate to contact us if there is anything you are unsure of with the home learning or in fact anything else that you may be wondering about. We are here to help and support you as much as we can.

Have a fabulous week!

Kind regards,

Mrs. Lakin

Good morning and welcome to a new week of learning,

I hope you all got on ok with last week's lessons. Don't forget to get in touch via the class email if you have any queries about the work set. We are here to help and support you as much as possible. This week we continue with our vehicle, learning about 'under the sea'. We will also be starting our unit on money, learning how to recognise different notes and coins and understanding their value. Please continue to practise phonics and lots of letter formation practise and independent sentence writing too. Please don't forget to use the pre-cursive font when supporting your child with their writing. It is so important and will reap huge benefits when your child goes into Key Stage 1.

Have a great week, enjoy the sunshine.

Kind regards,

Mrs. Lakin

Good Morning,

It has been lovely to welcome back some of our children into school over the past two weeks. We are slowly getting to grips with the 'new normal'. For those of you who do not intend to send your children back before the summer holiday, I am now able to post some home learning guidance here each week which will run alongside what we will be learning in school. Please send photo's of children and their home learning to the office so that they can be uploaded onto our school Face Book page.

Stay safe.

Kind regards,

Mrs. Lakin

Teach Your Monster To Read

Dear Parents/Carers,

I'm not sure if anyone is using Teach Your Monster to Read. If not, I have today enrolled all our lovely reception children, as a class, to this site. The activities here are a fun way to practise phonics. Check it out and let me know what you think. To access:

On your browser enter:   



On the App when logging in:     set * Star Code 5674352

After logging in just sign in with your child's Christian name (initial letter capital), this should take you straight into the site.

I will email parents of children with longer Christian names to give you your login details.

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to the beginning of the new summer term. We hope that you all had a safe and very lovely Easter  together with your family, sharing this special Holy season.  This very strange time continues but together we will help each other along on this journey and hope and pray that we will all be together again soon as a school community when it is safe to do so.

Daily learning activities will be added each day for you to share with your child. Don't forget to send pictures of your busy bees at work so that we can celebrate  their home learning on our class page. If you do not want your child to appear on our class page just let us know but still send us the pictures so that we can see how they are doing with their home learning.

Thank you,

Mrs. Lakin

If anyone needs any support or advice, please drop us an email and we'll do what we can to help.

Take care everyone and stay safe.

Love Mrs. Lakin  and Mrs. Allcock xx




Dear Parents/Carers,

From Tuesday 24th March 2020, this page will be updated with learning activities for children to enjoy at home. 

Purple Mash logins have been sent out and children can access activities on that site and the Espresso site. Espresso is free of charge until the end of May.

Espresso login:

Username: student 71835

Password: painsley

Have fun exploring Purple Mash and Espresso. There are lots of activities to access to help support your child's learning.

I will put 'to do' activities on Purple Mash for your child to complete. You should be able to 'save' these so I can get to see what the children have been doing.

Check out all the online resources and Apps sent out in your Reception pack. There's loads to do!


I understand that we are in unchartered waters at the moment. There are many challenges occurring in all our lives at this time and these seem to be changing on a daily basis. How we deal with these changes will effect  our children in different ways. If possible, try to keep to a daily routine. It is sometimes helpful to plan your day to help give structure and security, things children thrive on. Also, try to think of setting a daily challenge for your child, something to work towards and maybe build in some rewards.


It's important that you don't forget to have fun! Do things you don't normally get the chance to do. Spend time building dens in the garden/outside or inside, draw, paint, create, make play dough, bake together, dress up, watch films, watch live zoo cams. Most of all, enjoy time with your little one, cherish every moment and keep them and yourselves safe!


Love  Mrs. Lakin X
