Learning at Home

Learning at home is very important for the children to embed the skills that they are learning at school and also to build their understanding of the world and language skills. These will be developed by providing out of school experiences for your children and engaging in conversations about a wide range of subject.

Reading and phonics links:

Keep practising phonics sounds.  teach your monster to read you can set up an account and let your children play on it for a small amount of time each day. Also phonics play is now free to use. The children love the games. Please continue to read every day.

 

Homework

Reception homework is to read their reading books and practise their phonics and key words at home each day.

The children in year one will be set homework covering the topic and can hand in their books every Tuesday for an adult to check. Spellings and phonics will be added weekly.

All homework should be completed in pencil and should be your child’s best work.

We are teaching a cursive handwriting style in school and an example of how to form the 'pre-cursive' letters is in the front of the homework book. Please encourage your child to practise these when they are writing.

Phonics Screening (Year 1)

This year all of the children in year one will be taking a statutory phonics screening check. This check will take place nationally in the week commencing 10th June 2019. The check will involve the children reading a range of real and non-words using their phonics up to phase 5 and will take 5-10 minutes to complete. It will be administered in a quiet room with their teacher. The check will help to identify children who may need additional support with their phonics next year and these children will have the opportunity to be checked again in year 2. Results of the check will be reported to parents in the summer term. There are some resources to support attached below.
