Hello everyone!

So now you have all successfully completed two weeks of home school - Well done!

Thank you so much for the Tapestry updates, we love looking at the variety of things you've been getting up to. What has been the best thing you've done so far? 

I hope that some of you joined in with clapping for our NHS last night at 8pm? It was lovely to hear so many people celebrate our real life heroes!

So now we approach the Easter holidays and I'm sure they are going to be very different for us all. Therefore we have attached some Easter challenges at the bottom of this page; if you would like to keep yourselves busy. 

I hope you get lots of fresh air by spending time in your back gardens or walking/cycling in your local area.

Take care of yourselves and your families.

We'll be in touch again soon - The Reception Team


Hello Ladybirds and Butterflies!

It has been lovely to see some of the super learning you have been doing via the Tapestry site. Please keep up the good work and keep uploading your pictures, as this is a great way for us to feel connected to you!  We miss you very much!

How have you been getting on with the Joe Wicks morning PE sessions? I must admit I had a go at some online yoga on Friday as my legs were a bit wobbly from joining in with Joe! PE is a great way for you to start your day and energise you. The few Key Worker children attending Merley during this time have also been completing the sessions every day, so we're all in it together.

Well done those of you who have logged into Bug Club, I can see some of you have already finished all of the books, which is great! Let us know what your favourites have been. Maybe you could draw a picture or write some words to describe how the book made you feel?

Remember that our e-mail addresses are at the top of this page, so please do keep in touch and we're here to answer any questions when we are available.

Take care and lots of love

Hello butterflies and ladybirds :)

We hope you are continuing to learn through play at home and enjoying sharing books with your families. We hope you are able to make the most of the sunshine too :)
