Learning Update – Targets and support at home

Sunday 24 April 2022

We’ve had lots of emails this week to let us know about how your child has been working towards the targets that we discussed during our parent teacher consultation meetings.  Thank you for working with us to support your child. We know that parents/carers are a child’s first educator so support at home has a significant impact on future learning.

If you haven’t had a chance to work on them yet after the busy Easter holidays, have another look and see what you can do towards them this week. Lots of the activities will fit into day to day life and your child’s play time.

As some children had similar targets for some areas, we’ve put together a few ideas to help you further support your child at home.  Check which targets your child was given and have a look at the corresponding activities.

ReadingSpot rhyming words in stories.

Writing – Encourage children to write some of their name using correct letter formation. 

Writing – Encourage your child to pretend write such as making shopping lists or writing messages. 

Maths – Counting objects 1:1 to 5

Maths – Sing number songs to help show ‘finger numbers’ to 5

Maths – Subitising  – How many objects are there without counting? (up to 3)

Have fun working with your child on their target, and remember, please let us know how you’re getting on and if you need any further help.
