Reception Home Learning Activities
While your child is not in school please pick from any of the activities below and have lots of fun! These will ensure that your child is still learning whilst at home, keeping their minds active so that they are ready to come back to school to resume their learning.
Photographs and a caption about your child's learning at home can be uploaded to Learning Book and will be added to your child's online learning journal. This will help inform your child's on-going assessment and create a clear picture of their learning journey. At the end of the year a copy of your child's learning journal can be purchased as a hardback book or alternatively a digital copy on a secure memory stick. If you need your Learning Book password to be reset or are having difficulties with uploading photographs please use the email below to contact your child's teacher.
Activities that your child completes on paper can be completed into your child's home learning exercise book (if you received one) or into their homework book.
To further support home learning the children have been issued Bgfl logins which can be accessed through bgfl365.uk. This will provide your child with access to weekly home learning challenges and resources linked to the EYFS curriculum. You and your child will be able to access their Bgfl email account, files shared by their teacher and can also save their online work securely. Your child may enjoy exploring the features of Bgfl which includes paint, animation and coding. If your child is missing their login details and is not in school today, you can retrieve it by emailing their teacher on the following email:
You can also contact your child's teacher to keep them informed of your child's learning at home and to ask any questions that you may have.

Sharing Your Child's Art with Others
Many of you will have seen the news articles with regards to children creating rainbows as a sign of hope and positivity during the coronavirus COVID-19 self-isolation period. We would love to see rainbows made by the children and upload these to the school website. Be as creative as possible by painting, drawing, making a collage, or using simple construction materials. There is also the option to use the paint and draw option on ‘j2e5’ on the BGFL home page. Also feel free to add a little message – just remember not to use any names.
Please email your class teachers using the year group email address.
