List of High Frequency Words (HFW) to practise

Our Home Learning consists of:



High Frequency Words


High Frequency Words (HFWs) are common words that appear very often in books, such as; and, dad, if, not et c. These will be taught systematically in school and a copy of the words that we are going to be covering will be sent home termly. Some words cannot be sounded out and we call these tricky or common exception words e.g. I, no, the, go, to and into.


Letters and Sounds Workbook

Our Letters and Sounds are taught in sets. At the end of a given set, a workbook will be uploaded to the Documents tab in Tapestry for you and your child to complete together.  N.B. the pre-cursive font that we use in school will mean that some letters are more complicated than others.


Reading books

Please continue to share books with your child regularly and note, using Tapestry, when they have read with you.  We will also share what they are reading in school via a Tapestry observation.


Handwriting - Letter-join

Practise patterns and letters using a desktop, laptop, iPad or tablet (see letter below for log on details from home).


Rooted in Reading; Reading Together Passport- TEMPORARILY ON HOLD 

Along with their assigned reading book, children will be free and encouraged to select a book that appeals to them to bring home to share with you. These books may not be within the reading skill of your child yet and so need to be shared.

The Reading Passport encourages children to read books from a variety of genres.

You can either record your child's feelings about the book yourself or encourage them to write/draw a response.

If you have any queries, please ask your child's class teacher.

Top 20 Things to do Before Reading

There are two Early Learning Goals for Maths. This is what most children in Reception are expected to be able to do by the end of their first year at school.


Number: Children count reliably with numbers from one to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number. Using quantities and objects, they add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer. They solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.


Shape, Space and Measure: Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.


The attached document contains some information about Mathematics in an EYFS setting. The How can I help at home? section is particularly useful because it provides lots of practical experiences that can be applied in and around the home.
