Hello to all our Reception Superstars and their families,

We hope you are all well and enjoying the sunshine at home this week. We have been thrilled to hear from many of you and are pleased to hear that you are all having lots of fun and learning lots. We hope that you are all being very helpful at home and showing your parents how grown up you all are! We are missing you all lots and lots!

On Monday a task was added to this website to create an Easter garden. Remember to send photos or an update via email or Evidence Me of how you got on with your Easter garden. We would love to see them. If you are not sure what to write for an Easter prayer, maybe you could say the one below with your families once your garden is complete.

Below is a prayer for you and your family to remember Jesus:

Let us remember Jesus. 

Jesus, you are so good. 

Help us to grow in goodness.

Jesus, you are so kind. 

Help us to grow in kindness. 

Jesus, you are so caring.

Help us to grow in caring. 

Jesus, you are so loving.

  Help us to grow in loving.  


  (Taken from Come and See)  

We wish you and your families a very peaceful Easter.

Happy Easter!


Miss Morris and Mrs Fox

Hello to all of my Reception Superstars and their families,

I hope you are all well and I bet you have all grown lots since I last saw you. I have been missing you all and miss all the fun that we have. School is not the same without you all!

This week I have set a few tasks on Purple Mash for you. Also if you look on the home screen on the Purple Mash website you will see ‘Mini Mash’. Click on this and in the top right hand corner you will see a box labelled ‘Easter’. There are lots of Easter activities to do in there for you over the next week.

I have attached an Easter Garden activity for you to complete.  I hope you enjoy it! Also attached are Phase 2 and Phase 3 key words for you to practise reading and writing.

Hi Reception!

I have heard great things about the website ‘Teach Your Monster to Read’. It is a fun and interactive game which guides the children through different phonics activities, learning sounds we have previously looked at, and as the game progresses, new sounds for the children to learn.

I have set up usernames and passwords for each of the children. If you are interested in this website, please email me on eyfs@stoswaldscatholicprimary.co.uk for more information.

Hello my little Reception Superstars,
It has been lovely to see how many of you have been completing your weekly Purple Mash tasks. I have seen some amazing dinosaurs and some excellent phonics completed. If you haven’t already had a go at these tasks, they are on the Purple Mash website until Friday and then a new set of tasks will be available from Monday. Your parents have been sending me lots of photos and information about what you have all been up to so keep up the good work!
As promised, I have set a task for you to complete in your work book. Click on the ‘Alien Tea Party’ below.
I am missing you all.
