Welcome to the parents, carers and families of Reception pupils at Minet
We have created this page to help you to support your child at home during this challenging time.
We hope the ideas, activities and resources provide some structure to your daily routine and help to support your child in their learning whilst the school remains closed.
We look forward to seeing what you get up to and if you are happy to share your learning, please email photos and updates to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can share it on our page @minetinfants.
A Message From Your Teachers
We hope you are enjoying this time with your family and are helping your adults to cook, clean and look after your home! There are two stories that we often read to help us to understand why we can’t go to school at the moment. The first is by Unicef – My Hero is You and the second is published by Nosy Crow – A Book For Children.
Also, if you click on your teachers picture, there is an extra special message for you and your class!
Even though we’re not at school, we have still been very busy staying at home and this is what we do every morning:
At 9:00am we always do PE with Joe (The Body Coach TV)
At 9:30am we go to the dough disco with Shonette (Spread the Happiness TV)
At 10:00am we have a maths party with White Rose (White Rose Home Learning)
If we miss any of this, we make sure to catch up! Other things we love to do are learning adventures and we use what we are sharing with you on our ‘Areas of Learning‘ to do them. Another favourite things to do is reading, so we make sure that we do this everyday!
We hope you are well and we are thinking of you and your family always,
Miss Longson, Miss Crane and Miss Toor
Year Lead, Bluebell & Snowdrop Class
