Home Learning Challenges
Once the children have settled into Reception, home learning will be issued on Tapestry every Thursday and returned by the following Thursday. In Reception, these home learning activities are fun, practical activities that involve the whole family. For example, activities may include an autumnal walk, collages, cutting and sticking activities as well as baking! They are designed to be an extension of the learning that takes place in class in a fun and engaging way.
When children start in Reception, children take home a ‘Share and Enjoy’ book and we encourage parents to read to them every day and share this with us in the children’s reading journal. Once children, can blend and read words independently they take home a reading book from our Read Write Inc. Phonics programme. We then expect children to read at least five times a week and again ask parents to record this.
