There are many ways that you can help to support your child’s learning at home. One of the most important things you can do is to read with and to your child – as often as you like!
As they learn more letters and sounds we will be sending home words for you to practise. Please spend just a few minutes daily with your child recognising and reading these words. When they know their sounds and are beginning to blend them we will start sending home reading books for you to share with your child.
Below is a document full of games and ideas that you can use at home with your child.
In maths we are learning to recognise, count and order numbers to 20 initially. They will then learn to add and subtract with objects and fingers, by counting forwards and back and then mentally. They will recognise and describe 2D and 3D shapes such as square, circle, triangle, cube, cuboid, sphere, cone and pyramid. Children will learn to measure and compare in length, weight, time and capacity and use appropriate mathematical language.
We do have a selection of maths games for you to borrow and play. They are located near Mrs Gilderdale’s Cloakroom.
Mathematics opportunities surround us! We have attached some useful ideas of activities for you to try at home. They will be very similar to the type of activities we do in school.
