The Government expectation is that all children who are self-isolating and are well enough to learn will be expected to complete learning at home each day.  We have suggested some fun activities you can do at home with your child and the time we think you should spend on them. If you have any queries please email the class email address,

Phonics (teaching reading and writing)

The children have now learnt the phase 2 and 3 phonemes (s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r, h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss, j, v, w, x, y, z, zz, qu, ch, sh, th, ng, ai, ee, high, oa, er, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure).  We will be focusing on securing these sounds with the children over the next term so they are ready to move into Year 1 with a secure phonics foundation. Watching the Alphablocks episodes for these phonemes would help embed these sounds for the children 

Reception will also be continuing their work with sight words (I, go, no, into, the, and, he, she, are, all, be, we, me, was, you, they, my). We will be working on their fluency of these words as well as learning phase 4 sight words (said, have, like, so, do, some, out, come, were, there, little, one, when, what). 


The children are exploring numbers 1-10 and developing a secure and in-depth knowledge of numbers 1-5 between September and December. In terms 3 and 4 the children will be developing a deep understanding of numbers 6-10. The Numberblocks tv series explains these numbers in a fun and interactive way using song and rhyme. 

Term 5 and 6 will see the children continue to strengthen their foundations in numeracy and start to extend this to number 11-20.
