Homework and activities you can do at home
Please see our topic web below for suggested activities you can do at home that link with our topic in addition to the homework we send home.
We have children in our class at different levels in their journey with phonics. We use Letters and Sound, See and Learn and Ruth Miskin 'Read Write Inc'. We do a lot of work around our environmental sounds and through our music activities especially with rhythm. We have access to letters and music throughout our continuous and enhanced provision.
We use a lot of sounds in our play and during our Intensive Interaction session. We have lots of games with letter, animal and object sounds in.
Reading in our class will show in many different ways. We enjoy to look at books - both on our own and with adults, some of us use symbols to communicate and read our own sentence strips out, we track lights, images and other objects as part of PE, Outdoor play, Light and Sound activities and ICT to name a few. We participate in Sensory Stories, we have access to books in areas of continuous provision and we look at photos of ourselves and others. We have a Book Corner which is filled with a sofa and lots of cushions inside and a reading area outside. We have story sacks that go home as part of our homework to look at with our families.
You will see us taking part in lots of different Maths related activities in our classroom. We have access to numbers, shapes and sizes in our continuous and enhanced provision. We do lots of counting as part of our play and in routines - such as counting children. We have access to different sized containers and participate in lots of pouring and filling activities whether this is in the sand, water or other messy play. We are learning to follow routines and anticipate what is going to happen next. We have a designated Maths area within our classroom, but this doesn't mean this is the only place we access our learning in Maths, there are lots of opportunities throughout our classroom - both inside and outside.
