How We Learn

We learn when we are engaged, motivated and encouraged to be creative.  We are provided with opportunities to allow us to think about how we might do a task next time so we can improve and build on what we know.

What We Learn

Mathematics

Here are some useful links for maths games online. Click on the images to take you the webpages to play games that will support your child's learning.

           

 

Literacy

From learning to make marks in sand and cornflour goo, to holding a pencil correctly to form letters, then words and finally simple sentences, every level of development is carefully planned to facilitate the individual child's development and needs.

Phonics is initially taught to the young children in the form of developing speaking and listening skills ready for the second phase of phonics which is identifying letters and sounds to make words. Click on the picture to take you to Phonics Play were you can access a free page for parents which provides you with information on the teaching of phonics and also some games you can play with your child. 

 Here are some useful resources for learning the jolly phonics actions we use with our children. Click here to open the sheets. 

FS3 (Reception) Because tricky words can not be sounded out, you have to learn to read them by recognising them and remembering which bit is tricky! Click here to access the tricky word sheet.  You can cut them out and hide them around the room or pin them on your fridge. 

Communication and Language

We encourage children to become good communicators by enabling them to speak clearly and listen to others. A great time to develop this skill is asking your child about a story you have read to them or encouraging them to tell you about their day at school, look at their profile pictures through tapestry our online learning journal,
