The Grange Community Infant School
I play, I learn, I belong
How can you help your child at home?
All the children in Key Stage 1 have their own Home Learning Journal which they are encouraged to complete at home and bring into school to share on a weekly basis.
At The Grange we recognise that the children learn, not just in school, but at home as well and we want to celebrate this. Each half term, the teachers will send home a suggestion sheet of home learning ideas linked to the topic being covered at school, however any area of interest can be explored.
There is no one way of a child recording their home learning. Paintings, drawings, collage, writing and computer generated work are all appropriate. Tickets and mementoes of places visited could also be included as well as photographs.
As well as completing work in their home learning journals, all children are encouraged to read or listen to a story being read at home every day. As well as bringing home high quality texts to read together, your child will also bring home their Little Wandle reading book on a Friday to show you how well they are doing with their reading.
Please follow the link below to find out more about how to support your child with their reading.

Towards the end of Year 1, all children will take part in the Year One Phonic Screening Check. This is to assess their Phonic knowledge and their ability to apply this knowledge to the reading of a range of words. We send home half termly phonic assessments to enable you to see any sounds your child needs to spend some more time on. You could use magnetic letters to make words containing these sounds for your child to read. You could also visit the Phonics Play website to reinforce learning.
