Welcome to Reception at Acklam Whin

Weekly Homework 

In Reception, we like to share our learning with you. Each week we will update you with the letters and sounds we are learning or with activities based on our maths focus through Seesaw. We will share photos of what we have been doing in school. Your child will bring home a personal login code and instructions which will allow them to access their own Seesaw Journal and activities that have been set by the Reception team.
