Leighton Primary School


Hello Jellyfish and Starfish children,

We hope you are well and enjoying the extra time with your families. It has been great to see some of the lovely things you are doing at home on Tapestry. Please keep posting them on there as it really does keep us smiling! We all miss you and look forward to being back with you all in school soon. If your grown ups would like to share what you have been doing at home on the school website then please ask them to send messages and photos to one of the teacher's emails below. 

Take care,

Mrs Bird, Mrs Cuthbert, Mrs M. Wells, Mrs T. Wells, Mrs Corleys & Mrs Mason

Hello reception parents and carers, 

We hope you and your families continue to be safe and well. 

NEW! Schoolreaders Storytime

Another new story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' has been added to the list of stories being read for your child to listen to. Here is a link to this story

Schoolreaders Storytime – ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ by Michael Rosen

For brave hunters and bear-lovers!  Follow and join in the family's excitement as they wade through the grass, splash through the river and squelch through the mud in search of a bear. What a surprise awaits them in the cave on the other side of the dark forest!

Please click on the 'Reading' page on the right for links to more fantastic stories. 

Please continue to encourage your child to do some reading, maths and phonics every week day for about 10-15 minutes each. On 3 days please practise handwriting, and on 2 days please do some writing. If your child wants to spend longer on their learning, then please let them. 

In the folders on the right, you can find ideas for home learning in different areas of the curriculum. These will be added to and updated regularly. Please email if there is something you would like us to include. 

A message has been sent on Tapestry to tell you which phonics group your child is in. When you look on the phonics page you will see a page for each group. Please click on your child’s group to find activities to learn and practise the sounds they are working on. New activities will be added on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

There will also be 3 themed activities each week which will be on the page with each week’s date. Please remember to read a story to your child each day too. On the reading page on the website, there are lots of online book resources if you need some new stories.

If you would like to contact your child's teacher to request help or ask questions about your child's home learning, please use these emails.

Below are some general home learning ideas from Tapestry which you might like to try and some guidance on adding your photos, films and comments to Tapestry. Just click on a document to view it. 

1.5.20 Books to explain COVID-19 to young children have been uploaded below. They are available in different languages.  The books can be read on a screen and do not need to be printed.  The drawing activities can be done on any paper you have available. 

Kind regards,

Mrs Cuthbert, Mrs Wells and Mrs Bird.
