Home Learning

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 etc. These will be taught in school through phonics, guided, shared and individual reading.  A copy of these words is available for your reference below.   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 

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.  


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

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.
