Reception are using Mathseeds!



Mathseeds teaches kids aged 3-9 the core maths and problem solving skills needed to be successful at school with fun,
highly interactive and rewarding lessons. Mathseeds combines highly structured lessons with fun motivational elements
that keep children engaged and keen to learn.


We will be using Mathseeds as a class at school and we strongly
encourage families to log on and use Mathseeds at home throughout the week.
As your child progresses through the lessons, their teacher will be updated on their progress and the levels will become more challenging.


If you require your child's log-in details, please contact their teacher! 

What is... RWI?



This year, your child will be taking part in a daily Read, Write, Inc. (RWI) phonics session. 

This is a very successful programme that will enable your child to read and write independently and confidently. Each day your child will learn a new sound and will be taught how to put these sounds together to read words. They will also practice writing these letters and gain the knowledge and skills to write words and simple sentences independently.


  Sound Set 1

Week 1: m  a  s  d  t
Week 2: i  n  p  g  o

Week 3:  c  k  u  b  f
Week 4:  e  l  h  sh  r
Week 5: j  v  y  w  th
Week 6:  z  ch  qu  x  ng/nk.



Sound Set 2

ay - may I play?
ee - what can you see?

igh - fly high

ow - blow the snow

oo - poo at the zoo

oo - look at the book

ar - start the car

or - shut the door

air - that's not fair!

ir - whirl and twirl

ou - shout it out

oy - boy with a toy



Please help your child by hearing, saying and writing the new sounds. You can also help by reading and practicing words that contain the new sounds.  Please ensure your child's Home Learning Book is returned daily. If you have any questions about your child's home learning, don't hesitate to ask one of the reception teachers.
