Autumn Term - Home and School Support

Proud clouds

Please make a note on the proud cloud of any of your child's achievements at home. Date and send them into school to be displayed on our board. They are lovely to read and help to contribute to your child's assessment throughout the year.

We also use the Tapestry on-line journal to record your child's learning in school. You are encouraged to upload photos from home that show your child enjoying family activities throughout the year. Again this shows what your child is achieving at home with your support.


  • The focus in mathematics is to gain  a good grasp of number recognition to 20, ordering numbers and counting objects reliably. They  will be learning to recognise more and less and to match numeral and quantity correctly.
  • In writing, we are encouraging the children to mark make and build up their fine motor skills with lots of different activities. They will also be encouraged to hold their pencils/crayons  correctly using a tri-pod grip. We will be learning to write our letters correctly using the correct formation.
  • Reading progression will be developed by the children using their daily phonics lessons to 'sound out' words as they learn to read simple words. They will consolidate blending and segmenting sounds in words. Your continued support with their reading at home is very important. They will be entered into a raffle and could win a reading prize if their diary is signed five times a week!


If you have any queries about what your child is learning or about how you can help please don't hesitate to ask.
