Reception Home Learning
Whilst school is closed, please use the following to continue your child’s learning at home. If you have any queries/problems please contact Mrs Jenkins, EYFS Manager - email@example.com
1. Reading using the Oxford Owl website
Click on ‘Free e-book library’ to access lots of banded reading books. You can search for your child’s reading band colour to find appropriate books for them to read at home. Remember that we encourage children to re-read books more than once to develop their fluency. Reading of e-books can be recorded in your child’s reading diary. The Oxford Owl website also has lots of free learning games you may want your child to access.
2. Phonics using RWI cards/Phonics Play website
Cut up the sound cards provided in your home learning pack and use them to help your child practise recognising the sounds at speed, in different orders. Move on to making words for your child to read e.g. cat, man, milk, spin, drink.
Play the free games ‘Picnic on Pluto’, ‘Dragon’s Den’ and ‘Buried Treasure’. Choose ‘Phase 3’ or ‘Phase 4’ to ensure your child practises the sounds they have been learning in real and nonsense words.
3. Challenges on Tapestry
Log on to Tapestry regularly to see a range of challenges/tasks set by the Reception team. Don’t forget to add on observations of your child completing these!
4. A range of learning tasks on Mini Mash in Purple Mash
Using their individual log on, children can access a range of different activities which explore different types of learning.
