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. 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. 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.
