Remote Learning Week 2

Welcome back to our second week of remote learning. Thank you for all of the work and activities that you completed last week, it was great to see lots of wonderful work being completed by both the children at home, and by the 'key worker' children in school. This week is going to be slightly different in the way that I upload the work, as it seems that most people are now able to access the work on Microsoft Teams. If anybody is still struggling to access the work on Microsoft Teams, or still requires any login details for either Microsoft Teams or Purple Mash, please do not hesitate to ask and I will resend this information to you. 


I hope you all have a great week!

Happy New Year Reception!

I hope you have all had a safe and happy Christmas. Unfortunately we are unable to learn together in school at the moment and so I have uploaded work into each of subject tabs below. Please record your work in your red, blended learning exercise book or take photos of your work, so that I can see all of the fantastic work that you do at home.

I will also post activities on Purple Mash - Where you can also explore lots of fun activities using Mini Mash. 

Please email if you have any problems.

Take care,

Miss Samuel

Reception Class Plan - Autumn 2

Covid Catch Up over the Summer 



Occasionally over the summer you may like to dip into the challenges below. Have a look at the end of Reception expectations to ascertain whether or not your child could use the challenges to secure their learning. This is entirely your choice and there are other fun ways of actively learning and achieving the below expectations. 

Have a lovely summer - I know Mrs. Bond will love being your teacher in Year 1. 

Lots of Love - Mrs. Maguire  xxx


Welcome back! 

A very warm welcome back to "school" for your final term. I hope you have had a well deserved rest over the gorgeous half term holiday. I am still thinking of you and your families all the time and I hope that you are all managing to stay safe, well and sane! 

Remember - 


You all worked incredibly hard last term to complete activities on Purple Mash and from the school website. I understand how hard this time can be so my advice is still; 

  • Make it fun! 
  • Do it outdoors! 
  • Little and often. 
  • Ensure that there is a purpose eg writing a note to Grandma or the Postman. 
  • If it's becoming a battle - stop and return to it later. 
  • Remember this .....

Returning to school .....

Still image for this video
As we begin to think about returning to school, I spotted a Mummy swan this morning looking after her baby cygnets. She is leading the way and they are following dutifully behind. She is keeping them safe and monitoring the risk for them all. Some she needs to keep closer to her than others. And that's fine. She loves them all. If you are coming back to school, we can't wait to see you. If you have decided to wait - that's fine too. Keep in touch with us via Purple Mash and emails. Stay safe and well, Mrs. Maguire

Preparing to come back to school. Have a look at this Powerpoint with your adult and remember our St. Philip's Standards - Be Ready, Be Respectful and Be Responsible




Monday 18th May 


This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. The theme for the week is "Kindness" 

It has been said that:


"Kindness is an act of courage" 


I agree - sometimes I think that it is more difficult to be nice. What do you think? 


Below you will find a "Power of Kindness Calendar" 

Each day I encourage you to come up with an act of kindness for your mums, dads and siblings. It might even extend to your neighbours (staying safe of course). I will be encouraging my children to think about the following ideas: 

  • Make your own bed
  • Make Mum and Dad's bed
  • Hoover
  • Match some socks
  • Kids make the lunch (under supervision of course) 
  • Record a lovely message for Grandparents/neighbours
  • Clap the bin men

and I'm sure you would have many many more amazing ideas 



Remember, we are here for you if you need us. 


Take care and look after each other, 


Mrs. Maguire xxx
