How to post on the class blog

A message from Miss Hand...

Hi Reception (and parents),


I hope you are well. On this page you will find the daily home learning. There is a page for each day of home learning.


Please record what you are doing on the class blog (BGFL 365). If you have an older sibling at the school they should be able to help with this, but please see the video and document below for instructions. 


Please remember that there is online learning for you to access too. You will have log in details at home for Active Learn where you can read ebooks, Numbots where you can practise basic maths skills and J2blast is a fantastic spelling game. You can find this app when you log into BGFL.


At the top of the page on each day you will find a link to the daily register where it will ask you to type your child's name. Please complete this before starting the daily activities.


A reminder also that we wouldn't expect Reception to sit and work for long periods of time. We have whole class learning time on the carpet for around 15 minutes. The children will then work in small focus groups or 1:1 with an adult for a similar amount of time (15 minutes). When they are not with an adult they access a range of independent activities to explore, where they learn through play. A range of activities spread across the day rather than one after the other would be advisable. You can also do the activities in any order - it is up to you! Please don't worry about getting absolutely everything done, just do as much as you can and thank you so much once again.


Home learning paper packs/exercise books

You can pick up paper learning packs if you are struggling to access online learning or think this would supplement your online learning. There is a new home learning pack available each week for Reception. Work packs can be collected between 9:15-9:30am each morning. Anyone arriving after will need to collect them the following day. Please email to let us know you will be collecting a pack as this helps us to have everything ready. 

If you have any queries about the home learning or if you need any support, please send an email to the address below -


Thank you for all your support,


Miss Hand and Mrs. Barnett smiley

This is a website that the children use in school. It is great for creating projects, editing pictures, generating codes and much more.

This is a website for reading and the children will be allocated stage appropriate books that they can read online and then answer questions.


This is a website that focuses on basic maths skills.



J2blast is a great online learning app for you to enjoy! I am going to assign a set of spellings for you to learn and practise spelling on the game each week. These are phase 2 spellings and so all the words have sounds in that we have already learned. You can find this app on your BGFL account.

1. Log onto your BGFL Account  

2. Click on J2 Blast

3. Click on Spell Blast

4. Click the 'Click Here' button in 'Have a practice'

5. Click on the shared button and then select the spelling list I have created for you.
