In Reception Class, each half term, the children are provided with a grid of 12 activity ideas to complete at home. The activities are fun and practical, linking to our learning in school, and designed to encourage quality family time spent together. There is a copy of the grid in your child's reading log so that you can tick these off/date them together once you have completed them, a little bit like a bingo grid!
You do not have to complete all of the activities, we ask that you aim to do at least one per week during the half term, but if you are able to complete more this is great. Please upload photographs/videos to your child's Tapestry account once you have completed an activity.
The activities are active and play based to fit in with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and have been carefully designed to ensure a range of skills and knowledge is being promoted. The activities are open-ended to ensure that they are accessible to all families and children. You can choose the activities that suit your family and interest your child. They can also be adapted if necessary. For example, if your child is interested in writing, you could include some writing in the suggested activity. If your child enjoys numbers, you could include some counting in the suggested activity.
As well as completing the home learning challenges, please ensure you continue to read with your child and go through their sounds/tricky words every day.
