All Reception children now have logins for our online learning platform, Purple Mash. We recommend trying the online activities in the Mini Mash section first. They also have logins for the maths website, Mangahigh. There are links to both sites at https://greatcrosbycatholicprimary.com/favourite-websites , where you will also find links to other downloadable resources, such as Classroom Secrets and Twinkl.
If you need a reminder of your child's login details, please email email@example.com

All the year groups are learning a song for for when we are eventually back in school and able to have a celebration. The Reception teachers would like you to learn 'I Can Sing A Rainbow'. Click on the images for links to YouTube videos.
This work comes from the Come and See Religious Education programme which is taught in all Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Liverpool. We have given a general guide to the learning opportunities that your child may have come across in school and have only suggested and selected a small amount of the programme. The activities aim to keep Religious Education practical and fun. They are in Year groups however, there is no harm in completing other year group work as this will help your child to remember and strengthen their learning.
The first part of learning is called – EXPLORE. This shares your child’s everyday experiences and helps them to see how the Catholic faith is lived in their everyday lives. The second part, called – REVEAL shares bible stories that links to their everyday life.
Please note that the activities have been adapted as far as possible to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
