Weekly Planning

A message from the team


Thank you all for a wonderful year, it has been a different year and one we won't forget. We appreciate you taking on the teacher role and adapting under these different circumstances. 


We have loved working with you all and wish you the best of luck in Year 1, where we know you will have another great year.


We have created a certificate for the children and if your child hasn't returned to school then please email us and we can send you the document.


Have a lovely summer and stay safe!


Zoom meetings


RTF had a brilliant Zoom call last week, thank you for sharing all your special memories from Reception. We have shared so many lovely memories across the year.


Year 1 Teacher Zoom calls


This week you get to meet your Year 1 teacher on Zoom and they're both very excited to see you all and to work with you next year.


They have both asked that you draw the outline of your house and draw the special people you live with inside. Please label your drawings and adults can help if needed. Miss Alderson has made an example and we've attached it underneath. She has done hers on the computer but don't worry, you can choose how you do yours. It could be a picture that you have drawn and coloured. If you'd like your grown up to help with a computer, that's fine too!


RHS Final Zoom Call

We would love to hear your favourite memory from your time in Reception. This could be meeting a friend, visiting the church, singing in the Key Stage 1 Christmas play etc. 


Just a little reminder: 


The host will only admit participants with names that correlate to the class list. Names that will be accepted are the child's first name with initial or the child's surname.The child's full name should not be used. For example, Jo Bloggs will be accepted if her name is 'Jo B' or 'Bloggs'. 

Fine motor


Your fine motor task this week is set by your new teacher and is the task above. Think carefully about your design and make sure you hold the pencil effectively and comfortably and draw carefully to create your best drawing.


Please email a photograph of your work to the Reception email so your current teachers can see your amazing art work too!
