Year R Information

Check this page regularly to see what we are learning about in school and how you can support your child's learning.
General Information
Thank you to everyone who supports their child by sharing the reading scheme book regularly at home.  Children who read often become confident readers.  Please remember to write in the Reading Diary so we know what you have been doing at home.
We do many reading activities at school in addition to hearing the children read.
PE days are as follows -
Ladybird  - Monday
Dragonfly - Tuesday
Bumblebee and Butterfly - Wednesday
Please make sure your child has a PE bag in school, with a white t-shirt and blue/black shorts.  PE bags will be sent home at the end of every half term to be washed.
After Easter, children will need a pair of trainers for outside sports.
Library books
Please check outside your classroom to see what day your child's Library book change day is.  Books need to be returned on this day so they can be changed.
WOW Moments 
We love to celebrate the learning your child has done at home, so if they achieve something that makes you say, "Wow!", we want to hear about it!  You can fill in a WOW moment, and send it in to school so it can be shared with your child's class.
Supporting your child at home.
Supporting your child with learning at home will help them to develop as a confident learner.  In addition to hearing your child read as often as possible, you could also access the following activities and resources ...
Learn the Anima Phonics actions.  You can see them in the booklet sent home with all children.  You can also access the character pictures on
Watch the Alphablockas and Numberblocks videos ...
Use the White Rose Maths site to help you follow what we are doing at school.
Use the Purple Mash website that you have access to - your child's login details have been provided to you.
Familiarise yourself with the Early Learning Goals (where most children will be by the end of Year R)
Encourage your child to write as much as possible and remind them to use correct letter formation.  Use the letter formation booklet that was sent home with your child.
Take a look on Pinterest.  There LOTS of good ideas for making learning fun, especially for phonics and maths.
