In Reception, we follow ‘Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum’. We believe children learn best through play, first hand experiences and through their interests.
You can help your child in many ways at home:
1. Talk to your child for example, about their day, when you are cooking, what you can see when you are walking home/on the bus.
2. Read them a bed time story. Talk about the book and ask questions about the book to check they are understanding ( questions you can ask are below)
3. When in the environment count things you see e.g. dogs, steps, buses. You can look out for shapes and letters in the environment.
4. Play jolly phonics phase 2 on youtube to help with the letter sounds. Link below.
This week we are learning doubling.
Double 1~ 1+1=2
Double 2~ 2+2=4

Children can go on youtube and type in double songs for children it will come up with a few. The double number zoo is the song we have been doing in class (Link below)
We have been learning money and recognising the coins 1p,2p,5p,10p. We have been describing the coins aswell.
1p- is a copper/brown small coin.
2p- is a big brown/copper coin.
5p- is a small silver coin
10p- is a big silver coin.
At home you can show your child the coins above and let them play with it. You could pretend to play shops which we have been doing in class (one person is the shopkeeper the other is the customer). The children have also been writing shopping lists so you can encourage your child to write a shopping list and take your child to an actual shop to buy the things on the list and show them the different ways you can pay- coins/notes/card. The children have also been writing shopping lists For online games - visit www.topmarks.co.uk and type in money for money games.
