How to Help Your Child at Home.

Your child will be bringing home a book bag with a word / sound box. These are to help your child to support their reading and writing in Reception.

Please make sure that your child looks after these resources and brings them to school daily, so as we can assess if they need the next set.


Activity ideas:


  • Show your child the words / sounds in a random order for them to speak aloud.
  • Lay the words out and ask your child to find a given word / sound.
  • Make simple words using the sounds - you model first, when your child is ready, see if they can blend the sounds to read the word.
  • Can your child find a given word / sound from a book or sign?



  • Can they recognise numbers in their environment? (House number, bus number, prices)
  • Ask your child to place a set of numbers in the correct order.
  • Lay numbers out and ask your child to find the correct amount of objects to match the numeral e.g. 5 can your child find 5 apples?


If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Early Years team.


Thank you for your continuing support,


Mrs Fry, Miss Heaven and Mr Nelson.
