Reception

Thank you all for your patience during this difficult time. We appreciate that you may not be able to complete all of the challenges daily. The most important part of the home learning is their reading and listening to stories. You can send any home learning to rec@howebridge.wigan.sch.uk or the Reception blog on the website or you can send it through class dojo. :)  I would like to thank you all for sending me the home learning, it has been lovely to see :)

Easter Holiday! 3.4.2020 - 20.4.2020

Hi everyone, Just a note to let you know that, we will not be setting any home learning over the holiday period. We will however, be running an Easter card competition for the Infants and our usual egg competition for our Junior children. We would like all entries to be photographed and emailed to rec@howebridge.wigan.sch.uk. We will then ask our Governors to judge the competition and award a prize to the winner of each class. We would ask that entries need to be back to us by the 20th of April. I am really looking forward to seeing them. .

 

I hope that you all have a fabulous Easter holiday! Enjoy the two weeks with your family! I have attached an easter bingo card just for fun if you wish! :)

Out of the Ark Music have released free access to some daily singing resources that you can access at home.
