Week 6- 11.05.20

Dear Reception, 


Hello! I hope you are all well and enjoying the beautiful sunshine we have had this week.  I find everything seems better when the sun is shining.  Thank you to all the updates we can see on Tapestry.  It is my favourite job of the week! You are all doing so well and I am incredibly proud of everything you are doing at this difficult time. 

Keep smiling, we'll be back together soon hopefully! 


Thank you to the lovely Nursery parents and children who made us the super video, it was great to see you all in action with the book bag! 


If you have any comments or queries please do email me on: 




Take care,

Mrs. Dhariwal smiley

Letters and Sounds Phonics 

We follow this programme at school and we are now being offered a chance to have daily live lessons.

Take a look and see if it is something your child would benefit from.


Oxford Owl

We know that many children have read their reading scheme books from school and so we are setting up some (socially distanced) book swapping at school. Mr Cotterill has given more information in this week's newsletter about how this will work. However, you can also access free e-books from the reading scheme (and you can search by the colour your child is on.)

Simply register and there are lots of great ideas in ways to support your child at home.

Maths Home Learning with White Rose Maths


At New Scotland Hill, we follow the White Rose Maths scheme of learning. To help children continue learning with the same techniques we use at school, I will be setting work from the WRM website. Children should start with Week 1 and do one activity each day.


Each activity comes with a short video, showing what is being taught, and this is followed up with a fun activity.
