The most important thing is to keep reading. Read aloud to an adult daily, share some favourite stories and talk about these. Also chose a book to read to your child each day. Sing some nursery rhymes daily, see link.
Phonics: Reception practise phase 2 and 3 using the linked sounds mats. Year 1 practise phase 4 and 5 phonics using the linked sound mats. Also access phonics on Espresso (your log in to this will be sent privately)
Choose some words from the word houses to learn to read and spell.
Year 1 and Reception: The children can go on Number blocks and practise Number formation using this sheet. Cooking is also a good way to practise Maths as is playing broad games using dice e.g. snakes and ladders, ludo, orchard games etc.
Do remember they need to play.
PE: Make sure you go out for a walk or take some exercise each day.
Cygnet Class is where the youngest children begin their time with us. The children in this class are Reception and Year 1. Mrs Manzi, the class teacher, is supported by many very experienced voluntary helpers. In Cygnet Class there is a mixture of play based learning and more formal teacher lead learning. A particular favourite of the week is the Welly Walk where the children go off site around the village and local area learning about their surroundings. Children in Cygnet class have daily phonics to support them in learning to read and write effectively. Many of the children will say that their favourite part of the week is creative dance, a favourite of Mrs Manzi’s.
