Home - School Learning
Dear Parents & Carers,
We have created an exciting pack of learning activities to support your child at home.
You can access these through
Please check your ‘To Do’ list on Purple Mash. (Login information is attached in packs or your child's reading records)
Click on curriculum folder/English/Phonics
This includes a variety of activity sheets to practise writing, spelling, maths, reading. We hope you enjoy them.
Always review the sites ahead of time so that you are able to help your children find the best resources available within the sites. Some offer a great number of games, songs, stories, videos etc. so it is important to know the site well in order to support and develop your child’s learning.
Choose a story/topic and complete the activities.

Home School Diary:
To help you and your child settle into school life, your child will have a weekly home/school diary for the first six weeks. We will write to you to share your child's achievements, progress and celebrations.
Please reply and return back to us by Wednesday each week.
We love to read!
We listen to individual readers as much as possible. Please complete your child's reading record, sign and date to let us know if he/she has read. We will then change your child's reading book every
Monday and Thursday
We encourage our children to be as independent as possible - please practise getting dressed and undressed independently. This will really help them during PE and dance sessions.
Please label ALL items of clothing - thank you!
If you have any worries or concerns - please come and speak to speak to the Reception Team.
