Hi everyone.  We hope that everyone is ok whether you are coming into school or staying at home.  For those learning from home, the learning for week commencing 22nd June is below.  The focus this week is ladybirds. There are power points and worksheets to support learning.  If you are finding it hard to print, then these jobs can be done on paper. Try to read as often as you can. Oxford Owl is an excellent website for reading books.  Keep up the good work.

We hope that you are all keeping safe and well.  The topic for this term is minibeasts and the work reflects what we have taught children who are attending school.  There are links below for letters and sounds lessons and the book trust for stories.  Try to read and share stories whenever possible.  If you are not able to print, then write or draw on paper.  Please keep us up to date with your achievements by sending one photo for the 'Wow Wall'.

There are two different packs again this week. Please choose which activities you would like to do from both. If you don't have a printer, look at and discuss the activities or write/draw them out on to paper.

Please continue to practise all sounds covered so far and counting forwards and back to at least 20.

Keep reading too! smiley

As we begin the new term, we have added something different for home school learning. There are 2 different packs - choose which activities you would like to do from both. If you don't have a printer, look at and discuss the activities or you might want to write/draw them out on to paper.


It is important to keep sharing books together. Below you will find a link to the BookTrust website which has lots of well known children's books read out loud.

Dear Proud Pandas,

We are very 'proud' of you for all the work you are doing at home. Just try to do your best and do a little each day and remember to have lots of fun outdoors enjoying this wonderful weather. Have you been reading books on the Oxford Owl website? www.oxfordowl.co.uk This is a great website for reading free books similar to the ones we have in school. 

We hope you have enjoyed watching our 2 school staff videos. You can share with us the things you have been doing at home by emailing photos@churchgresley.derbyshire.sch.uk - giving consent that we can publish these on our new Facebook page 'Church Gresley Infant & Nursery School - JT MAT'.

We are really missing all of you and hope to see you soon!

Take Care

Love from

Mrs Ridgard, Miss Pickett and Mrs Hackett
