Home Learning



Happy New Year, I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas!

I am Mrs Swinford and I will be teaching Reception.


Here on the website is where you will find your home learning. I hope you enjoy it and I can't wait to see what you get up to!


I will be uploading English and Curriculum activities weekly, but you will find a task for each day. Please upload each daily task to your child's Tapestry profile.

I will be uploading Maths and Phonics daily. For Maths you will need this link ( taking you to watch Numberblocks. I will tell you each day which episode to watch. There will be a powerpoint for Maths and Phonics with voice overs talking through the learning and telling you the task for the day. Please also upload these tasks to your child's Tapestry profile. I hope this is helpful!

If you have any questions please email: where I will be able to respond.


Stay safe and I can't wait to meet you all when you return to school!


Thank you,

Mrs Swinford :)



Welcome to Reception Class at Chesterton.

We have had a busy half term so far settling into school life, making new friends and learning the routines of the day.


In Phonics, we have learnt the sounds s,a,t,p,i,n,m,d and g so far. The class are doing very well at remembering the songs to go with each sound and we are working on our letter formation every day.


In English, we started with the Owl Babies story. We learnt all the actions to accompany the story and made our own masks for retelling, also drawing our first story maps!

Over the past 2 weeks, we moved onto Non-Fiction which involved creating our own set of instructions. We started with bird feeders, then squirrel muffins. We visited Forest School on Friday to make our own dreys for the squirrels and hide the muffins we'd made.


Please see the photographs below for a snippet of what we have been upto in Reception.


Thank you,

Miss Baggott and Mrs Carter.
