Tips for home learning.

Children in their Reception Year learn best when they are actively involved.

Play is very important in our curriculum and you can see from our timetable, that we have a balance of directed learning and time where children can choose how to learn. This is likely to work well for your child at home too. This term we will be extending the adult directed led learning as the children are ready for this.

In my experience it works best for children of this age to have most adult directed learning in the morning and more child led learning in the afternoon.

Children are learning with you either one to one or in a much smaller group, than in the class, so it is likely that they will focus for between 10-15 minutes and then be ready to move on to another activity.

Each child is different so please feel that you can find the way which works for you child.

Many of our activities are practical involving lots of talking and using objects. I have added some worksheets to the home learning. However, if you are not able to print these, they can still support your child, by using them as a guide.

Outside learning.

Outside learning is very important and we spend time outside each day. A daily walk or time in a garden will provide so many opportunities for your child’s language, social and emotional development. I will include ideas for outside learning each week.

Stories and reading.

Please continue reading with your child and talking about books. The phonics lessons also have opportunities for reading. This is so important and will really support your child when we return to school.
