Home / Pupils / Class Pages / Reception


In these uncertain times, we hope that you are all keeping safe and happy at home and we are missing you all- remember, it will not be forever!

Home learning links can be found on our school website and Reception page. Your child’s class teacher will be adding activities on Seesaw for you and your child to access. You have received the log in codes and staff from school will be calling you to check that everything is working ok. You can get on to Seesaw by going on https://app.seesaw.me on your computer, clicking ‘I’m a Student’ and entering your code. If you need help logging on to Seesaw, you can email hatfieldhomelearning@astreahatfield.org.

Activities that will be available are daily phonics, maths, reading or writing activities. You can also upload photos, videos or information of any fun family activities that you have been doing at home. Your child’s teacher will respond and approve these.

The books that have been used up to now on Seesaw are Supertato, What the Ladybird Heard and Pirates. More texts will be uploaded in the coming weeks.
