Homework 2020-2021


Reading and Maths:

In Reception Class we send home sound cards and CVC blending games for the children to have a go at. We also have picture books to help them develop their 'book talk'. When your child is ready they will bring home their first reading book. Please practice your child's sound cards/reading book as often as you can and remember - reading is a journey, everyone is on their own path.


Also in that bag you will find number cards for them to recognise, order and play with and Tricky Word/High Frequency flashcards. 


Fine and Gross Motor Challenges:

After the first half term holiday is over, we use Google Classroom to share weekly Fine and Gross Motor challenges with you. Please encourage your child to have a go at the activities - they are all designed to support their core strength and finger dexterity which is vital to their development. 


Mrs Goodall and I are always here to help with suggestions, reassurance and

support should you need us - no question is too daft!


Home Learning

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all safe and well! We have started putting together some home learning website pages for you. These sites can give you some great online lessons during your time away from school and some fantastic resources for the children. I am sure, as time goes on, this bank of links will grow so please keep coming back and checking out our homework section! 


We are also busy developing Google Classroom for you. It will be ready in a few weeks and teachers will place content on there for your children to use at home. We have recorded a small demonstration video on how to access Google Classroom and this can be found in the Video Resource Centre by clicking the link below. 

Many thanks

I just wanted to share a little thought with you at this time. I hope it makes you smile. x

Helpful websites during the school closure

Homework in the Reception Class is slightly different to the rest of school.


Your child will have sound cards in their book bag to support blending CVC words and when ready they will be given their first reading book. Please practise 2 or 3 times a week. We check these daily and so please write in the yellow reading record how they have got on. 


We will also pop in number cards for your child to recognise, order and play with. 


In their book bag you will find their big green challenge book. Every week (normally a Friday) we will put in a Fine Motor based challenge for them to complete over the week.
