How you can support your child at home: 

Reading at home

Children are expected to read to an adult at home for at least 10 minutes daily.

School Reading Books are sent home on a Monday. They need to be returned back to school on a Friday. Please indicate in the reading diary when you have read with your child so we know that they require a new book.


Please see attached list of high frequency words below. The children will be learning to read and write these words. We will start with the Phase 2 word bank and then progress onto Phase 3 and Phase 4.

Some phonics website with free games to have a look at are: and

Number facts

Counting up to 20

Ordering numbers up to 20

Doubling numbers up from 1+1=2 up until 9+9=18

Halving and sharing amounts

This term our topic is Harvest.

If you would like you could find out facts about fruit and vegetables, harvesting foods or scarecrows.
