Happy New Year everyone! Welcome back to another term in Reception. Thank you again to everyone for all your help last term with our Home Learning Project. The weather and season charts were AMAZING and the children showed how much they have learnt from this project. This term is short with only 28 days but it is jam-packed with exciting things. We have started learning our Set 2 Sounds; ay, ee, igh, ow, oo and oo. The children will be introduced to a new sound each week so please use the Homework to help them learn it. Keep an eye out for any information coming home which you can always find in the Boomerang Folders

Home Readers

This term the children in Reception will be encouraged to take home a reading book. These will be borrowed from our classrooms  and kept in the Boomerang folders. This is a great chance for you to share a story with your child and help build a love of reading! 


Please do encourage your child to read with you at home and help them with their challenges in their home learning book.  We recommend 5 minutes a day and remember to make it fun!



Inside your Boomerang folders you can find some Sound Tiles. These tiles are the exact same as the magnetic letters we use at school to help us learn to segment and blend. Please use these as part of your home learning and help your child build their confidence with sounds. 



Teach Your Monster to Read

Have you been on to access Teach Your Monster to Read? This will help your child learn their sounds and begin learning how to blend and segment words. Great for beginning readers! Click the picture below to go to the website. You can find your child's login details in their Homework Book.  





How should I say the sounds? - RWI. Pronunciation Guide

This video from Ruth Miskin shows you how to pronounce sounds in a pure way. This will help your child to hear each individual sound more easily which will give them the confidence when spelling and writing. For more information and videos, please visit or ask one of our lovely Reception teachers; they are more than happy to help!

Barnaby Bear could be coming home with you!


Each week, Barnaby will choose a child to go home with for the weekend. Barnaby loves to go on adventures. If you go to the park or beach, take Barnaby with you - he likes to explore. Barnaby Bear has his very own scrapbook so that you and your child can write about your awesome adventures together. It would be great if you could take some photos also or even draw some pictures. We can't wait to hear all about your time with Barnaby Bear!
