Welcome to Reception
Welcome to Reception. We hope your child has enjoyed their first few days. Over the next few weeks the children will be settling in and becoming familiar with the class routines.
Our topic this half term will be ‘Autumn & Ourselves’. We will be finding out more about each other and looking at the changes to the season. We are planning to focus on the following books; The Little Red Hen, The Gruffalo, Owl Babies, and Look at Me in This ABC. Please check back soon to see see our topic web and timetable.
See below for details of our remote learning platform- DB Primary
We will be continuing to use DB Primary: hogarth.essex.dbprimary.com for homework. This will be uploaded every Monday and must be complete by Friday. If you require a paper copy of the homework, please make sure to inform the class teacher on Monday.
The children will be required to use the username and password that was issued to them as part of their home learning pack at the end of the autumn term. It is important that children keep their username and password safe and that they do not share it with friends or family.
Once your child has logged into DB Primary they will be able to see their class homepage and the homework tab that has been set for them.
As part of the DB Primary platform, your child will be able to use a forum to keep in touch with their friends and teachers. Please discuss the safety implications of this with your child:
We hope that having access to DB Primary will be a helpful way in which you can support your child at home and that children can begin to take responsibility for furthering their own learning independently.
