Home learning and support
For children in their Reception year, please read with your child as often as possible. There is much research to show that a broad vocabulary and good reading skills set children up well for learning across the subject areas. Incidental and real life Maths such as counting, talking about shapes and measuring (eg ingredients, their height) in their every day lives is useful. During the year teachers will suggest fine motor skills activities as well as phonics and number games to play. Deliberately talking about the environment and nature within it helps children to start to notice details and to learn how to describe what they see, spot patterns and notice changes.
Providing appropriate and clearly named clothing and footwear is a useful way to support your child whilst they are at school. Children in our school will need wellies and coats (or sun hats) in school every day as we use our outdoor environment throughout the day. We prefer wellies to stay in school. Parents will receive further information about PE kit in the termly curriculum letter.
If you have any queries or want to know more about how to support your own child's learning at home, please don't hesitate to ask Mrs Wallis or Mrs Chillitupa.
