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 changed on a Monday, Wednesday and 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.
In Reception children are expected to know the following:
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
Here are some suggested websites to help you practise…
