Home Learning

What could you do at home to help your child with their learning?

 

 

To help your child with their maths you can practise the following:-

  • Counting forwards and backwards from 1 to 100. (Start on random numbers, does your child know what number would come before and after that number?)
  • Read, write and order numbers to 10, 20 and then 100. 
  • Say the days of the week. (It is always fun to make up a tune to sing a long to, then your child could share it with the rest of the class).
  • Say the pairs of numbers that add up to 10. These are called number bonds and we will be starting them soon in class, e.g. 6 + 4, 8 + 2... If your child is feeling really clever challenge them to find the number bonds that add up to 20. 
  • Say the number that is 1  more and 1 less than numbers to 10, 20 and then 100. 

 

To help your child with their english it is important to:-

  • Read with them as often as you can, please write in their diary when you have listened to them read.
  • Learn their spellings each week. Children will be given new spellings every Tuesday and will be tested on them the following Tuesday. When practising their spellings it is helpful for the child to write the 'spelling' in a sentence so that they can practise finger spaces, capital letters and full stops. Creating funny rhymes with your child may help them remember their spellings and would be lots of fun too. There will be prizes for the most creative rhymes/ acronyms for any spelling e.g. Because

B - Big 

E - Elephants 

C - Can't 

A - Always 

U - Use 

S - Small 

E - Entrances
