Home Learning in Reception



In reception we use the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised Phonics scheme. Each week you will receive a sheet via their book bag or explaining the phonemes that have been taught that week and together with the rhymes to help them form the graphemes. It will also give you examples of words and sentences that have been read in class using the new phonemes as well as the tricky words we are focusing on that week. Please review these at home and practise writing using a variety of media, this could be using felt tips on large paper, chalks on the pavement or water and paint brushes on the shed.

Little Wandle for Parents



During the Spring Term children will be sent home with log in for Mathletics. Your child will then receive activities to do based upon what we have been covering in Maths. Please spend some time whenever you can using this website in order for your child to practise and consolidate their maths learning. 



Please read regularly with your child.  The books that they bring home are the ones that they have chosen and while they may not always match their reading level exactly they will give opportunities for creating conversations about vocabulary and building skills on comprehension as well as just decoding the words. The children will bring home another book which is linked to their phonic knowledge and key word progression, these will be a physical book which is also available as an ebook to give you more flexibility. 


For further information on the home learning expectations in Reception, please see the curriculum letter.
