In Reception it is important to support your child to learn to read. As such, we suggest that much of the homework you do with your child should be helping them to learn the sight vocabulary words sent home in their reading diaries and to hear them read throughout the week to develop their phonics and sight vocabulary skills. Please remember to complete the Reading Record Diary to show this has happened. We would also ask that you continue to help your child practise their phonic skills by using the practise lists in their diaries and the information and activities provided in the link below.
After Christmas, each half term the children will be given homework relating to their next Learning Adventure.
We will put a list of suggested activities for you to do at home. Over the half term, you and your child can choose to do as few or as many of these as you would like. As a guide, you might like to do one per fortnight. Your child can record it any way you choose – photographs, drawing, writing etc. Please send a completed activity in to school so the teacher can share and enjoy your child’s home learning.
As we are an eco-friendly school we do not provide children with a paper copy of homework. You will need to print this out at home. If you do not have access to a printer, please let your child's teacher know so that they can provide you with a copy.
