    Phonics Homework

    We will keep you updated with the letter sounds and tricky words that we learn in phonics each week.

    We will send home work linked to this.

    This work can be sent back into school or uploaded to Tapestry once completed.

     

     

  • PE

    PE

    PE is on a Thursday. Children need a white or school t shirt, black shorts and gym shoes or trainers.

    PE bags can be left on pegs ready for the sessions. They will be sent home at the end of each half term to be washed.

    Please ensure all clothing is clearly labelled.

    Reading Books

    When each child is ready, they will be allocated a reading book.

    Initially this may be a ‘talk about’ book with no words alongside SATPIN sound cards that should be used to build words.
    This will progress onto a school reading book and a second ‘reading for pleasure’ book.

    Please ensure that all reading resources are bought to school each day.
    Books will be changed each Wednesday and Friday.

    Please attempt to read with your child a minimum of twice a week for at least 5- 10 minutes. After each read please record in your child’s reading record  in order for them to earn certificates for their hard work.

  • Tapestry

    In Early Years we record all children’s achievements on Tapestry, an online learning journal.
    Through this website/app you can see pictures and videos of the things that your child gets up to whilst in school.
    You can also upload things from home too-from an excellent attempt at homework to a day out at the park!
    Look for the logo above when downloading the app to your phone or tablet.

    If you are having problems, speak to any EY’s staff member-we are happy to help!

  • This half term we will be learning about …

     

  • Helping your child at home…

     

  • In our phonics lessons we learn the individual sounds that each letter makes when it is in a word.

    To the right are the sound mats showing the sounds that your child has been learning.
    If you want to practise these at home, checking that your child can identify the sound, that would be great.

    If you are unsure of any sounds our staff will be more than happy to help.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Another way to help is to check that your child can recognise numbers from 0-20.

    Why not question them about numbers in the environment?

     

     

     

     

    Practise some pencil control with your child by drawing shapes and patterns or writing numbers or letters.
