Hi Reception, we hope you are all keeping well and your families too! 🤗


We just wanted to tell you that this week we are learning all about farm animals so please don't forget to take a look at our home learning activities where you will find lots of different things to do. Miss Lench will be reading the story of 'The Three Little Pigs.’ 🐷 So we would like you to think about the materials that the three pigs used to build their houses. Do you know what material your house is built from? What other materials can you find around your house? What are your windows made from, what is your table made from, what material is your chair made from? Why don't you see if you can make a list of different materials that you can find around your house. You could even share your list of materials on Evidence Me, we would love to see them. 😌


Another story we will be sharing on j2e is 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff.' 🐐 I wonder if you have something that you could build a bridge out of for the three billy goats, do you have any empty yoghurt pots or cardboard tubes, you could even use some toy building blocks or Lego. Think about how you can make a strong bridge for the goats, you may need to use a selection of different things to build it with. You could have a go at writing some instructions on how to make your bridge or a list of the things you need. 😊


Another exciting thing we will be doing over the next two weeks is setting up Teams Meetings with you all so we can come together and say hello! We will be sending invitations to you all via your e.mail address so keep an eye out for your invite - we really hope you will be able to join us! ☺️


Don't forget that just below is a step by step guide to accessing our home learning so please remember to take a look and logon if you haven't already done so.😊


Bye for now Reception, stay safe and we will be in touch again very soon. 👋😊

Home Learning 

Good Morning!
We hope you are all safe and well and ready to learn in a little bit of a different way for a short time.
Our home learning is on where you can access this and log in with your email address and passwords. The link below shows you how to access the home learning so please be completing the daily tasks we set for Maths and Literacy. There is also a project folder, where you can access activities over the week and revisit this when you need to. 


If you have any questions or queries about home learning then please do not hesitate to contact us via email at and a member of the Reception Team will get back to you as soon as possible. 


If you have completed a practical activity or have been learning through play at home then please remember you can still upload work onto Evidence Me and we can look at all the wonderful things you have been doing. 


Play is powerful and has many learning opportunities. At school, we use different questioning and modelling to develop children's learning and ideas. 


–  I wonder how we could make ……………….?

–  I wonder what will happen if …………..?

–  I wonder why that hasn’t worked?

–  I wonder what else we could do?

–  I wonder what we will need to take when we go to ……………?


or some different enquiry questions that could also help and support children's language and creative thinking:

* How could you find out?

* What do you think? And do you think everyone else would think the same?

* What do you think is happening?

* I don't know, what do you think?

* Can you tell me more about that?

* How can you make/build this?


Any questions, ideas or queries please do email us and we are available to help and support you.
Many thanks,
Reception Team

Happy New Year to you all! 


We hope you all had a wonderful break and a fantastic Christmas and we just wanted to say a big HELLO to you all.👋


We know we can't be together at the moment but we are thinking of you all and we have been busy setting you lots of exciting activities to do on the j2e website so don't forget to find your passwords, logon and take a look! 🤗


Our project for this half term is Animals and for the next two weeks we are going to focus on Arctic Animals. Therefore why don't you see if you can think of an Arctic Animal and make a fact file, you could draw a picture of your favourite Arctic Animal or you could have a go at writing a list of as many Arctic Animals as you can think of. You could ask your grown ups to help you. 😌


We will be in touch again very soon, but until then, please make sure you are all staying safe and take good care of each other. 😊



A Special Message from Santa for all the children at Timberley Academy

Brilliant Bonfire!


We have had the best day celebrating Bonfire Night. We started our day making some sparklers to take outside with us to our Bonfire event. We dressed up lovely and warm and went outdoors watching Mrs Henningham and Mr Ball make a fantastic fire for us all. We listened to the fire crackle and pop and we watched as they added more fuel to keep the fire going. We then enjoyed lovely burgers and chips which were delicious! We finished our bonfire with a scrummy shmore which we even got to roast ourselves. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy :)


Bonfire Bonanza! 


On Thursday, we will be having a fun filled outdoor learning day! We will be learning all about Bonfire Night celebrations and why people celebrate Bonfire Night.  We will be going on Autumn adventures, having a Bonfire and we are even having our lunch outdoors - we can not wait to explore our outdoor areas. We are asking children to please wear warm clothing including hat, scarves and gloves and wellies. Please can you make sure your child's name is on their clothing so we can make sure it stays safe during our day. Make sure you continue to check the website for our pictures of our Bonfire Bonanza too!

Over half term, the weather is going to be very autumnal and crisp. Spend time with your grown-ups in the outdoors, going on some adventures. There are some ideas of things you can do over the half term to keep you active and busy and in touch with nature.

All About Vets


As part of our project, we have been learning all about 'People Who Help Us'. We have learnt so much about Police, Firefighters, Doctors, Nurses, Lollypop People and this week we had a talk from Mr Ball all about being how vets look after animals.  
Mr Ball talked to us about how to keep our animals healthy. We talked about how we would know if an animal needs to go to visit a vet, and what the vet may do to help our animals. We even had chance to stroke some of the animals and we enjoyed learning so much about helping and caring for the animals.


It was also very autumnal when we were outside, especially with the colourful crunchy leaves and the bright pumpkins. We enjoyed learning outdoors and we even had a chance to sit on the pumpkins for a picture. Take a look below...
