In the Reception year, children will not be set formal homework. However, throughout the year we may provide ideas and open ended opportunities via Tapestry, that you and your child may wish to participate in. After each of your child’s focus weeks we will also suggest some ways you could continue to support their progress and develop their interests at home.
The most valuable way to support your child at home is to talk to them, encourage them to ask questions and introduce them to a wide range of life experiences.
We also urge you to read with your child every single day – whether that is in the morning, in the car, before dinner or at bedtime. This could be time for your child to have a go at reading to you, but it is also very important for you to read to your child, model the use of expression and talk to them about the story. We encourage children to explore a wide range of fiction and non-fiction texts.
