Home Learning



To support your child's learning at home you should:


  • Share stories every day, ask questions about the pictures
  • Involve your child with day to day tasks such as cooking and tidying up
  • Draw pictures together, practise name writing
  • Encourage independence with self-help tasks such as toileting, dressing and feeding
  • Encourage positive behaviour, have clear boundaries
  • Limit screen time


Check 'Evidence Me' regularly so that you can see what your child has been learning about at school. Don't forget to send us some photos of their learning at home too!



Supporting Language and Social Development

Speaking, listening, understanding and socialising are fundamental skills for young children to develop. Please see the links below for more information about this, as well as ideas for ways to help at home.

Please spend 5 to 10 minutes each day with your child looking at a book together; the length of time will vary according to how long your child concentrates for.


Ask your child questions such as “What can you tell me about the picture?” and give them time to reply to get them talking. You might look at all the pictures in the story in that time or you might just look at one of the pictures. Encouraging your child to say what he/she thinks about the pictures in books is an important part of learning to read.


Read to your child regularly. Encourage him/her to join in with some of the phrases he/she can remember when you tell the story again the next time. Talking about the pictures in books helps us to tell a story.


As your child develops their phonics knowledge over time, they will begin to have a go at reading letter sounds and blending them together. practising these skills together will enable them to read simple sentences independently.
