Wrens and Puffins news

Reception have been busy finding out about things that go! We have explored planes, trains old and new and automobiles. We have learnt about vehicles that help us and were very lucky to have a visit to school from both a police car and a fire engine!

Phonics in Reception

Here at Burpham, we follow 'Essential Letters and Sounds programme' for our daily phonics lessons.

If you missed our recent phonics meeting please take a look at the Parents Meeting Feb PowerPoint to see how you can support your child at home.

CEOP website supporting online safety through an interactive game

The new interactive website encourages 4-7s to engage safely online by helping them to recognise worrying, upsetting or scary situations and reinforcing the key message that they should ‘Tell A Grown Up’ in these instances.

The website is divided into sections for 4-5 and 6-7 year olds and features relevant and age-appropriate games for the chosen age bracket. Each game focuses on one of four topics:

  • watching videos
  • chatting online
  • sharing pictures
  • gaming online
The Jessie & Friends episodes are also available to watch on the new website to enhance understanding.
