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.
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…
This term our topic is Harvest.
If you would like you could find out facts about fruit and vegetables, harvesting foods or scarecrows. https://www.safesearchkids.com/google-kids/#.XcAmC1X7SUk
