Home Learning in Reception

At Windmill we believe that during the Reception year the majority of learning will take place during purposeful and high quality interactions and through play. However, you will receive some key pieces of learning to explore with your child at home.

These will include but not be limited to: 

- New phonics sounds weekly once this is being taught and progressing towards applying phonics skills in writing and reading activities.

- A reading task weekly - see the 'Reading in Reception' information for more about this.

- A combination of maths and topic activities across the term that supports teaching and learning in school eg Go on an Autumn hunt and record what you find. 

- Parents sharing their children's learning and development via our online learning journal 'Tapestry'. See 'Tapstry in Reception' for more information.
