Information for parents - Ways to support at home
Home link information
Please ensure you use the home link information and the reception webpage each week to support home learning. This will support your child in securing the knowledge that has been taught in school, therefore enabling them to move on to their next steps quickly.

Phonics and handwriting
We use specific actions to teach the letter sounds in our phonic work and also specific formation in our writing – the following will share this information with you:
We use some handy websites at school and these can be accessed at home, there are lots of free elements without having to sign up:-
Phonics - https://www.phonicsbloom.com/ - click onto phonics games and choose phase 2 and 3
Phonics - https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/ - go into resources and choose phase 2 and 3
Maths - https://www.topmarks.co.uk/ - click on the Early Years section and choose a game!
A reading book will be sent home each week for you to share with your child. They will have looked at the book at school and the main focus for development will be in your reading diaries. Please ensure you comment in these each week.
There are also more books on the oxford owl website that you can utilise to extend this learning: - https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/please-log-in - to log in is free and you can then access the free ebook library.
