Homework in Early Years is predominantly play based. We encourage children to listen to stories, choose and enjoy books and sing number rhymes. You could play games that encourage and support this type of learning e.g. I-Spy, Bingo, Snakes and Ladders. Count with your child at every opportunity, play games that involve adding or taking away to/from 10, look at and name shapes around us.
Children will bring home a variety of picture books, reading books and sharing books. Try to spend ten minutes each day reading or sharing the book together. Children will normally keep the books for three nights as repetitive reading improves fluency. Our morning Sharing Time in class is a great opportunity to read a book with your child.
Children will occasionally have letter sounds, handwriting practise and key words to learn at home. They may also be set maths homework tasks or games too. These activities will be recorded in their Home Learning Book.
