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 words below. These are the spellings that children are expected to learn to spell by the end of Year Reception. We will start with the Phase 2 word bank and then progress onto Phase 3.
A phonics website with some free games to have a look at is: https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/
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…
