Reception

Welcome to Reception at St George's
Welcome to the final term of Reception!
We hope you are all keeping well. If your child is remaining at home, we will continue to provide some 'home learning' for them to access on the PurpleMash class blogs and here on the website. The school's Online Learning Team will be responsible for home learning while Mrs Trask and Miss Smyth are back in the classroom with the children who are returning to school. 
 
If you would like any more information about home learning please email Mrs Trask or contact the school office.
