The early years curriculum is based on learning through exploration and play.

There are a number of ways you can help your child to learn and make progress:

  • Always be on time.
  • Good attendance
  • Home reading
  • Point out numbers and letters in the environment. 
  • count at every opportunity
  • Talk to your child about the world around them.
  • Ask your child what he / she has been doing in school.


Parental Involvement

We believe that parents and / or carers play a vital role in their child’s education. We will support your efforts at home and provide opportunities for you to engage in your child’s education in school.


Reading at home 

Reading can be a special time for you and your child. Research has shown that reading for as little as 5 or 10 minutes each day can help support your child’s educational development. 

Please continue all of the hard work you have been doing at home ensuring that your child is reading their school reading book every night. Please remember to use the Phase 2 phonics actions and robot arms to help your child blend and segment the words they are reading and encourage them to memorise the high frequency words that they encounter in most books (the, no, he, she, go, etc.)
