Home Learning Changes


We would like you to access the fantastic Oak National Academy resources, who will be delivering online lessons each day, taught by a teacher. 


To access, click on The National Academy website below, select Reception, and start on Week 1, Day 1.


These are fantastic resources, if you need any further help, please contact me on Twitter. 



Do not forget about the daily phonics lessons found on Read Write Inc on Youtube. 

Come and See

As a Catholic school we follow the 'Come and See' Religious Education programme.  In Early Years the activities aim to keep Religious Education practical and fun.  Please only choose the activities you and your child wish to complete.  There are lots of suggestions to help you choose.  Below you will find some background notes for parents and a link to access online books from the Archdiocese of Liverpool, which is a great tool in supporting Catholic religious education and Faith with your children.

Collective Worship at Home

Happy Easter

I hope you are all enjoying the Easter holidays and managing to get out for a daily spot of exercise in this lovely sunshine.  Below are a few resources and links to keep you busy during the next couple of weeks.  Don't feel like you have to do something everyday as young children learn so much through their own play.  It is important to have some fun and follow your child's interests.  

Home School Learning

Hi Everyone

Due to this unprecedented time we will be updating tasks for children to do at home everyday.  These tasks are to be completed along with the home learning pack that has been sent home with your child,


If you have any queries, please see @ShiningstarsSTM1 on Twitter, or contact for more information.


Stay inside and stay safe.

Daily Activities 



Curl up and enjoy reading books together.  Enjoying books and reading stories from a very early age is crucial in the development of children.  It helps with their ability to understand words, use their imagination and develop their speech, as well as being something they really enjoy. Encourage your child to retell stories in their own words and use the illustrations in the books to help.



To get children ready for next year it is important to keep up with their daily phonics practice.  

The phonics scheme we follow in school is providing a daily stream to teach new sounds every day.  Each film will be available for 24 hours via FB and on YouTube.

Speed Sounds Set 1- 9.30 am 

( Recommended for Miss Turner, Miss Davison and Mr Thomlinson's groups)

Speed Sounds Set 2- 10.00 am

(Recommended for Miss O'Kane and Miss Davison's group)


The programme have set up a hotline for parents and carers helping children learning to read at home with Read Write Inc. Phonics.  Please email with any queries.  



I know how much the Shining Stars love messaging, so I would love it if you could send me some of your messages via Twitter.  Maybe you could hide some secret messages around your house for your family to find.  I look forward to sending you some messages over the coming weeks.



We are now up to number 18!  See if you can make a set of 18 objects.  Can you write this number using numbers or a tally?  How many different ways can you make this number?  Is it an odd or even number?  How do you know?



Look after your physical and mental health during this time when we are out of our normal, daily routines. Join in with 'PE with Joe', a livestream PE lesson every morning Monday-Friday from 9am. During the first session, millions across the world joined in with the workout.


See you there!

What a fantastic first week!

Our Reception children have just completed their first week with us, and they have already settled in so well!

They have been extremely busy learning, making new friends and having lots of fun.

A big 'well done' to all our new Reception children, who have started their new journey with us this week.
