Medium Term Overviews

Take a look at our plans for what we are covering each half term. Please note that these are overarching plans and children's needs and interests can take the learning in different directions, so these plans are adapted as necessary on an ongoing basis. 

Home Learning

Homework is set on Tapestry every Friday and should be uploaded for the following Friday. Please check Tapestry each week for home learning tasks. 

If your child has to be off isolating due to the pandemic, daily tasks will be added to Tapestry so they can continue with their learning and enjoy joining in with what their friends will also be doing in class. 


Your child will come home with reading book and a library book to share with you for pleasure.


Your child's library book should be returned every Friday.


Please ensure your child brings their reading book to school every day. The children will have 3 group reading sessions within school each week: decoding, prosody and comprehension. Please share the book with your child at home each night to develop confidence and fluency, encouraging them to read independently by segmenting and blending any words they are unsure of and talk to them about what is happening, how characters are feeling, predicting what might happen next and discussing what their favourite part of the book is and explaining why. 

We use 'Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised' to teach the children their phonics and early reading. Please see the link below to their parent information site, which includes useful videos and documents to help you support your child at home.
