Message to Reception children and parents from Mr. Simpson

*Reception Class 2-week isolation*

Good morning parents and carers.


Today is the first morning of a 2-week isolation period for Nursery and Reception children following a positive Covid-19 case within the bubble.  The children will return on Monday 19th October.  In the meantime, this class page will be the main area for accessing work, instructions, videos etc. to help make sure that your child continues to learn over the next fortnight.  It is so important that we work together to ensure the children's learning doesn't stop due to this unfortunate break from school.  Please click on the yellow star below, which takes you to all the daily tasks, instructions and updates.


If you have a question, comment or concern, please use the simple form below to contact Miss Gold and Miss Ashley, who will be working from home and is ready to help.


Kind regards,


Rob Simpson

(Head Teacher)

Welcome to Reception in Norman Pannell Primary School where we love to learn both indoors and outdoors. We have lots of opportunities to learn through active play, investigations, stories and visits. 


We strive to ignite children's curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, building capacity, to learn, build relationships and thrive. Below is an outline of what your child will be learning in Reception over the year. Please note that these can change depending on the interests of the children! 


If you have any questions, news or worries then please do not hesitate to speak to one of the Reception Team.
