Home Learning in Reception


Reading and Writing in Reception

 By the end of the Reception year children should be able to read and understand simple sentences through the teaching of reading with phonically decodable books.. They can use their phonic knowledge to decode regular words and read them aloud accurately. They can also read some common irregular words. They demonstrate understanding when talking with others about what they have read.

Children should also be able to use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds. They can also write some irregular common words. They write simple sentences which can be read by themselves and others. Some words are spelt correctly and others are phonetically plausible.

Mathematics in Reception

By the end of Reception children should be able to count reliably with numbers from one to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number. When using quantities and objects, they can add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer. They can solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.

Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them. 

Outdoor Learning in EYFS

The outdoors is a place where children can continue to learn by doing. They carry on building on the knowledge, skills and understanding that they have already acquired to make sense of the world around them. They are active learners, seeking information and continuing to question and explore. Being outdoors provides a focus for different types of experiences which support young children’s growing sense of confidence and autonomy. This is enhanced by the enjoyment of new challenges, such as seeking and finding treasure on a treasure hunt. Their enthusiasm to participate in outdoor experiences is expanded as their social and communication skills develop and they seek out and enjoy the company of adults and other children.    

Parent Helpers in Reception

 We are very lucky to have the support of many parent helpers in Reception, most of these stay after dropping their children at school to support a guided reading session in the class. This has greatly improved the overall progress of reading this year and we hope to continue this in the future.
