Little Hallingbury


Pine – Reception

A few activities for the last week (If you would like to!)

Hi Pine Class,

Well done for all the learning that you have been doing at home. I'd like  to wish you all a happy restful holiday. I have really enjoyed teaching you when we were in school and have enjoyed looking at your work and comments on DB primary. Keep up with your sounds, tricky words and number work over the holidays. If Mummy or Daddy ask you to do a little work, then remember to listen and do your best. Remember my motto: a little and often.

You will see me at Little Hallingbury in September. I will be working there on a Friday in another class so I shall come and say hello to you all !

Have a lovely summer holiday.

Lots of love from Mrs Hunt 


Hello Parents and Children,


I hope you enjoyed the weekend.  Mrs Manning wrote to all parents last week informing them that there is now "no expectation for work to be completed" and you can decide whether you wish to continue or finish remote learning now.  The children (and you!) have worked really hard at home and Mrs Hunt and I have been really pleased by how both you and your children have continued to support the children to learn at home.  Our youngest children often need the most support and they really do form the building blocks for life in their formative years.  As a parent of three children myself I know it is not always easy to juggle home and school and maybe work too at the same time.


I have been ahead of myself lately and had completed Pine class learning for this week, previous to when this announcement had been decided.  Therefore, I am including this weeks home learning from Monday-Wednesday.  However as per Mrs Mannings letter you do not need to complete it, it is entirely your choice.  Please start your holiday early if you feel that it is best for you and your family.


You may prefer to access other online remote materials.  Here are a few recommended sites:


  • Oak Academy (Reception lessons or year 1 for more of a challenge!)
  • BBC Bitesize
  • Top Marks
  • White Rose Maths - Home learning
  • Phonics Play
  • Phonics Bloom


Mrs Hunt and I will be working in school all next week in key worker bubbles but will still try to answers emails etc, when we are able to.


Enjoy your week,


Mrs Nicholson

Sports Day - 7th July 2020


We had a fantastic mini sports day yesterday.  The children were brilliant, they gave all the races and activities their full effort, cheered their friends on and had a super time.  Here are some photos and a couple of videos.  Look out for an email from me too (some emails are via DB Primary accounts) as I will be individually posting certificates, rosettes (to cut out) and more photos.  smiley

Dear Parents/Carers


Here are some resources to help your child throughout their reception year.  In normal circumstances we would prepare these resources for you, e.g. cutting out sounds and laminating them etc for multiple uses. However, due to the covid 19 pandemic we have added them to the website as an alternative.   We would encourage you to share the resources with your child throughout the Summer too as this will help to prepare your child when they start school.

Welcome to Pine Class!


We are the youngest children in the school.


Mrs Nicholson and Mrs Hunt are our teachers. Our primary teaching assistants are Mrs Brichieri-Colombi, Mrs Warwick and Mrs Gilbey.


We are very lucky to have our own garden so that we can play and learn outside, as well as using the rest of the school grounds. We are also very lucky because we have an adventure playground, a stage in the outdoor classroom and a large field to play on. We have scooters and bikes to ride on, toys to play with outside and lots of things to play with at lunchtime.


We have lots of fun in Pine Class and we learn how to do new things too.

We learn how to play together, taking turns and sharing fairly; how to look after each other and all the lovely things in our classroom. Our teacher helps us to read and write, count and do sums, make things in different ways and use computers.
