Home Learning

It is an important time for your child to begin a love of learning when they start school. Children who have begun this journey now go on to form and keep positive learning habits and attitudes. Your child's home learning at this stage should be 'little and often' and always with the encouragement and support of an adult. Your child will need a lot of praise and encouragement from you at this stage to make the learning both rewarding and successful. 


You can help foster a love of learning by:

  • reading together at least 5 times per week
  • rehearsing 'tricky' sight words regularly throughout the week
  • completing learning projects together


Experiences and memorable activities with your child will further enhance their learning.


These activities will be shared as weekly challenges via your child's class padlet, which can be found:
