Home Learning

Every Monday, we will be sending home or adding Maths home learning and a 'Rhyme of Week'  to Class Dojo.  We will also be sending home a 'shared reader' book from week 5 for you to enjoy together.

Every Friday we will be sending home a Little Wandle book which the children will have read 3 times throughout the week in school. These books MUST be returned every Monday.

Each time you read with your child please ensure you sign, date, comment in the yellow reading diary. 


Class Dojo is a great way to keep in touch with what's happening at school and to contact members of the Reception Team.
