 Homework in Reception

Homework is sent out every two weeks in Reception.  The homework challenges vary in the degree of bronze, silver and gold.  We set homework topics based around the topic/books we are covering at that time.


Reading in Reception

Your child will take part in a shared read in a small group each week and will also read individually once a week. Each child will be allocated a day that their book will be changed each week.Parental support makes a huge difference to your child’s education therefore sharing your child’s reading book with them for five minutes each evening will have a huge impact. Please sign or leave a comment in your child's reading diary. To support your child’s segmenting and blending skills further there is a great free phonics resource at which has a range of tricky word games and segmenting and blending games.
