Reception Long Term Plan

The EEF have created some useful documents to help support parents with learning at home:

Weekly homework

Home learning ideas will be shared each Monday through Marvellous Me.

This will include simple ideas, activities and games to help you support and extend your child in the learning we are doing in school.

Tapestry login

Tapestry login information was sent home with your child.  We hope you are enjoying seeing photos and videos of the exciting things we get up to!  Thank you for adding your own photos and videos too.

Please speak to the Reception team if you need any further help with this.

Maths information

We hope that the following slides will help you to understand how we teach Maths in Reception Class and why we teach this way.  We also hope to give you some ideas for ways to support your child in their maths learning at home.

Reading information

Thank you to those who joined us for our Early reading and Phonics information session. 

Please see the following slides for information about how your child will learn to read and ways to support them at home.

Here are some ideas of activities which you might enjoy doing at home to support your child in their learning!

At school, Reception Class are always busy!  

We really enjoy doing Cosmic Yoga sessions in school (available on YouTube) and you can practise fine motor skills by going to the ‘Dough Disco’!  There are lots of videos to follow on YouTube or you can get creative and make up your own finger disco moves!

Shonette Bason-Wood is the founder of ‘Dough Disco’ and a fabulous early years teacher and consultant, who has lots of great ideas.

Keep practising Phonics sounds and tricky words.  All of the Jolly Phonics songs are on a video in the 'Children's Area' of this website.  The children love the Tricky Word songs too (available on YouTube).

The Phonics Play website has some fantastic games, resources and ideas to help support you and your child with learning Phonics. 

Read anything that you can!  Share books, make predictions and talk about what you have read to check understanding.

The Oxford Owl website has some fantastic, free resources to support learning at home.

Practise writing names, handwriting and forming letters in cursive script by using the Letterjoin website.

School login details will be sent home soon.  Click the image below to go to their website;
