It is all a bit different and scary for us all at the moment, even the adults! But we want you to stay safe and stay at home so you can't catch any germs or pass any on. Hopefully we will all be back together as one big English Martyrs' family very, very soon. In the meantime, we have added some ideas here to help you carry on learning whilst you are SAFE at HOME!


Remember though, play is a VERY IMPORTANT part of your learning. It encourages, sharing, turn taking, patience, listening and working as a team. 

You can encourage constructive play with:


* Den building using sheets, duvet covers, tea towels, towels in the living room or in the garden or yard

* Playing board games like snakes and ladders if you have them

* Playing Hide and Seek around the house (stay safe though and only hide in sensible places!)

* Drawing pictures: rainbows for your windows, flowers to brighten up the day

* Make simple cakes like chocolate cornflake cakes or rice crispy cakes

* Play I Spy through the window

* See how many letters or numbers you can write in a minute (get mummy or daddy or a big brother or sister to count!)

* Read a book with a member of your family

* Read a book TO a member of your family!

* Simply play with your toys!


You can also click on the links below for some great online activities.

Remember to stay safe online though and if you are not sure of something...TELL AN ADULT!

Reception Class


Miss Andrews & Mrs Roach extend a very warm welcome to you!

Thank you for taking the time to look at our class page. We hope you find everything you need, including information on our curriculum.


It has been a very busy term so far and the children are settling well into their classroom environment.



PE takes place on a Thursday. Please ensure your child has a named PE kit, kept in school at all times. Please can earrings be removed on this day. Thank you.



It is always useful for the children to have their own pair of wellies in school for outdoor activities. If you do have a pair and are happy for them to remain in school, please name clearly and send to school in a carrier bag. Thank you. 


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Miss Andrews.
