Useful documents and links

 

As parents you may find these documents useful when assisting your child's development at home. They are to be used as a guide as we know that all children develop in different ways at different rates.

Mastery Maths

 

In Reception we follow White Rose Maths. This programme of study allows children to learn practically while utilising the learning environment. We build upon core principles that allow children to progress their mathematical skills throughout the year. Creating a mathematically rich learning environment also provides children with opportunities to develop, practice and consolidate their skills in different contexts and using different media. 

 

We also use Numberblocks to support the cementing of newly learned numeracy areas- all of these videos can be accessed for free on BBC iPlayer. Please use the link below to access them at home.

 

Alongside our maths lessons, the children enjoy playing different maths games, some of these can be found online on Top Marks- please use the link below to access these. 

Read Write Inc.

 

In school we have daily Read Write Inc. sessions, where we say the sound of each letter and practise forming them, using each of the sound rhymes. Below is a chart, which will help your child to form their letters at home.

 

Alongside our phonics lessons, we enjoy playing different phonics games in our class. Some of our favourite online games (our favourite is Buried Treasure!) can be found on Phonics Play, please use the link below to access the website and play the games at home. 

Here is a letter formation chart, following the Read Write Inc. program...

Parent video: How to say the sounds
