Hello everyone

We hope you have had lots of family fun during the half term, all this lovely sunshine to do outdoor exploring and finding out about where we live! We have uploaded some new activities for you to complete with your grown ups and we hope to see you all back in school soon, just as soon as we are sure it is safe for you to do so!  Take Care and Keep Safe.

Maths with Parents

Maths with Parents - Message from Miss Lewis

The most useful, effective and efficient way of supporting your child with their Mathematics learning at home is to make sure that your child is registered with the Maths with Parents programme. Each week (Monday) your child's class will be set a piece of learning (by their teacher) that fully corresponds to what they would be learning if they were in school at this point. If you have not registered as yet, please do so as soon as possible

Each week parents will receive a notification to log onto the MwP tool. You will see a short video with pupils speaking clearly about their learning (using the correct language) for the particular unit of work. This will be followed by 2 or 3 practical activities for you to complete with your child. You will then have the opportunity to leave some very brief feedback (verbally or via photograph).

To register, you will need (i) a parent email address and (ii) your child's class code. (please see below):

(FYJ) 445258 (FYO) 257541 (Y1E) 740915 (Y1R) 640431 (Y2D) 356927 (Y2SV) 209243 (Y3B) 854719 (Y3L) 655683 (Y4G) 529052              (Y4L) 118922 (Y5K) 288308 (Y5R) 283600 (Y6A) 215562 (Y6L) 552873

*NB Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and Y3 pupils - To acheive the 'Easter Eggsperts' award, your child will need to have completed all Spring Term tasks by 26th April! Good luck!

Thank you

In Early Years we have always encouraged parents to contribute to our children's Learning Journals. Maths with Parents has been a great help with this and we welcome Wow Moments throughout the year sharing achievements at home and in hobbies. We know that our Richmond Hill parents look forward to taking their children's Learning Journal home with them at the end of the year as a great keepsake showing their start in school. With this is mind we hope you can help us to continue documenting the journeys our children are taking through Early Years. 

Below shows 'Development Matters' statutory guidance we use to support every child's learning and development. Development Matters 30-50 Month band is a guidance for our Nursery children. Development Matters 40-60 Month band is a guidance for our Reception children. 


Observe your children as they act and interact in their play, everyday activities and planned activities, and make short notes of what you observe them doing independently. Take photos and when we return to school we will invite you to share your(or their) favourite 5 photos with us and these, along with your valuable observations, will go into Learning Journals to show what a fabulous job you are all doing at home and how much children can develop in a (hopefully) short space of time.
