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 send home fine motor skills activities as well as phonics and number related board 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.
All Year 1 children have received their log in details for Times Tables Rockstars and a set of phonics reminder sheets to help support their learning at home. Mathletics log in details were sent home earlier in the year. Spellings are sent home and tested weekly.
Providing appropriate and clearly named clothing is a key way to support your child whilst they are at school. Children in our school will need full PE kit and wellies and coats (or sun hats) in school every day as we use our outdoor environment throughout the day.
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 Kitts or Mrs Salen.
