Reception D

Welcome to Reception D

 

Reception is a wonderful world of fun, learning and laughter.

Every child is valued and made to feel special.

Always ready to have fun!

Reading, writing, learning and exploring, we always try our best.

 

Only small in size but big in effort.

New to our school so much to explore and learn.

Each day different and everyday new!

We will be teaching the majority of children online after the government announcement yesterday.  The children will have access to Teams and their usernames and passwords can be found on tapestry.  You can access the Home Learning via the class pages. If you experience any problems you can contact me via email on erinduffy@brightonavenueprimary.org.uk
