Welcome to our St George's website. Our value for this term is Perseverance.


Hi Reception,

Welcome to your home learning page. We will be updating this page with ideas, activities and websites that you can do at home. Don't forget to draw, write and stick photographs of what you get up to in your home learning book. Try and choose at least two activities from the sheets provided everyday. Make sure you have fun, talk and play together.

We will be setting regular challenges on Purple Mash for you to complete and hope to keep in contact with you whilst school is closed.

Try to keep up with your reading on a daily basis and remember to tell, write and act out your own helicopter stories with your family.

If you need any advice or more ideas what to do - get in contact with school and we will do our best to help you! You can email us on Reception@st-georges-hyde.tameside.sch.uk

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

The Reception Team


Here is a message from all the staff to let you know we are thinking about you and your family. We hope you are all well. We miss you and can't wait to see you all again soon. Keep smiling and stay safe. From everyone here at school. smiley"

PE with Joe Wicks


Chase the rainbow

Children across the country are placing rainbows in the windows of their houses to help keep children entertained during the Coronairus outbreak. 

The rainbows are then used as a tool to search for when they go on walks with parents. How many rainbows can they find on their walk out?  Take photos of the children designing their rainbow to put in the window and photos of them on their rainbow trail.  We would love to see them!!!

Why not try the science experiment below..........


Write Numbers

This is one of our favourite songs to sing in Maths. Watch the video above and have fun singing along and writing the numbers.  

Have a go at writing numbers 1 to 10, then 20 if you can. You could write them outside with chalk, paint them on a large piece of paper or in the air with ribbons.

Yeah! Yeah! Write Numbers!

Tricky words

We often sing these tricky words songs at school. They are a fun way to learn to read and spell words. Watch the video above to listen to them.

Look out for these words when reading books with your family. Try writing them in your stories. Don't let them trick you!

Easter story

Click here to see the video

Watch the video above to watch the story of Easter. After watching it discuss whether you think Easter is a happy time, a sad time or both. Why do you think that?

Mindfulness and Music

Both mindfulness and music help us keep calm and relaxed and are essential to our health and wellbeing. We love singing at St George's and it plays an important role in our daily worship and routines so it is important to keep this up too to lift your spirits and give you the 'feel good' factor.

Listen to some of your favourite songs and sing along. Teach someone at home the ones you think they will like. Practice some mindfulness activities to keep you calm and relaxed.

You could record yourself singing one of the songs and send it to us. It would be lovely to hear you!

Purple Mash

This week we have created a "Simnel Cake" for you to decorate on your 2Do list. A Simnel cake is a rich fruit cake, covered with marzipan and decoration, eaten especially at Easter or during Lent.

If there are any parents who need their login details resending or are struggling to find the task set, please email Reception and will we help you.

A special mention to Isla and Jasmine who completed their animated story for last weeks' task- Well Done! Please see below the lovely simnel cakes made by Isla, Fatima, Marcy, Yusuf, Izaan, Sumayyah, Amanah and Inayah.

3D Shapes

This is another one of our favourite songs. Click on the picture above to listen to it.

Can you go on a 3D shape hunt around your home and garden? What 3D shapes can you find? What shape are the faces? Can you find any 3D shapes that are not in the song e.g. pyramid or cuboid?

Sing Up - Shake my sillies out


The stay at home superheroes

Here is a great story, created to help children all over the world to understand the pandemic and the important role they can play. I'm sure your children will have lots of questions about this story.
