In Reception, children are given sound books to take home. This helps them embed the skills needed to segment and blend their letter sounds.
Each week we send home two pieces of homework. This alternates between SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar), Phonics, Numeracy and Topic.
Each week in class we have a spelling test which we then take home to practice at home and we are challenged to write these words in sentences.
Reading should happen every night and parents are asked to sign children’s reading records when they have read at home and put them in the allotted slot in the classroom to change.
