Phonics is a key part of our learning in EYFS and KS1. It is the basis of how we read and how we write and spell words. You can learn more about what phonics is and how we teach it here. There are also resources on the page such as sound mats and word lists, as well as ways you can help your child with their reading at home.
We follow a concrete - pictoral - abstract method in Maths. This means that we start understanding concepts by using practical equipment - anything from sharing out cubes or adding using base-10. We then move onto drawing or manipulating pictures to solve calculations. These methods allow us to understand what is happening when we do a calculation (adding, subtracting, dividing, multiplying) so we can then progress on to written methods such as column addition and long multiplication. You can view our Progression in Calculation here to see how we teach the children in class.
Please read with your child as often as possible, at least three times a week. If we feel that your child can read their book satisfactorily they can change it once a week. Please sign your child’s book every time you hear them read.
We are not giving out homework at the moment but we would like you to ensure you read with your child as often as possible. If your child receives spellings for their phonics group, please practise these ready for the spelling test on Fridays.
