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 for more electronic books.


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

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…


This term our topic is Minibeasts.

If you would like you could find out about different minibeasts. Can you label parts of their body? What do they eat? Where do they live?
