Dear Reception, 

We have loved having most of you back at school this week, what a pleasure to have been able to see you after such a long time!

A huge well done to each and everyone one of you for embracing the 'new school' in your s

We are continuing our topic of traditional tales and this week we will be sharing the story of Little Red Riding Hood

Looking forward to seeing any work you complete at home via Tapestry.

Don't forget the Summer Reading Challenge has started, ( see the newsletter for further details)

 This is a great way of making reading fun! 


Have an enjoyable week ahead, 

Kind regards,

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.


Our new topic is Traditional Tales 

Our text is Little Red Riding Hood.

If you do not have a copy of this classic story, please use the link below to share with your child.


Here is a link to a PowerPoint version of the story.


It is also a great story for role-play, if you have any props around the house to bring the story alive that would also be another memorable experience for the children. 




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.
