Learning at home
Try to build in a learning routine into your day. It doesn’t have to be too rigid, but something predictable means your child will know what to expect and they will feel more relaxed and ready to learn.
We will prepare 3 fun learning videos that will be posted on Tapestry everyday, with a focus on Maths, Phonics and Writing. The teacher will model and guide the learning to ensure your child continues to make great progress.
We find children concentrate best in the morning. Here's what a morning of learning may look like in the home setting:
A Typical Morning
8.30am Washed, dressed and breakfast
9.00am PE with Joe Wicks (Monday, Wednesday and Friday)
9.20am Time for a glass of milk
9.30-10am Maths with Mrs Wales
Free time - Fresh air, go outdoors and explore
10.00-10.30am – Phonics with Mrs Moore
Snack time – Healthy fruit and a glass of water
11.00-11.30am Writing with Mrs Reho
Free time - Quality play and talk time with your child
The importance of Play
Play is one of the main ways in which children learn and develop
Young children can develop many skills through the power of play. They may develop their language skills, emotions, creativity and social skills. Play helps to nurture imagination and give a child a sense of adventure. Through this, they can learn essential skills such as problem solving, working with others, sharing and much more.
In turn, this helps them develop the ability to concentrate. Providing children with a range of playthings will help them learn in a number of ways:
It's important that learning is fun at this age. It needs to be about doing things with them that they like.
Fill your afternoon with lots of fun and try and keep active together.
Sing-along with Mrs Pottage
Teachers are still working hard to make sure we get it right for your child. If you have any problems, please make contact through the Tapestry account or email the class teacher.
We will be making weekly calls to check how things are going and offering support where we can. We would also like to have a phone conversation with each child to give them a chance to tell us what they have been busy doing at home.
We can do this together!
Stay at home, stay safe and take care,
The Reception team
