From the outset of EYFS, children are encouraged to listen to stories at home and begin to practice their own reading each day.
From Autumn term 2, pupils in Foundation 2 will receive home learning activities through the Tapestry platform. Activities are phonics based and consolidate Read Write Inc learning taking place in school. Children will be given 5 new sounds/ words to rehearse depending on their position on their Read Write Inc journey. They are provided with a range of suggested activities to encourage recall and blending of sounds and words (e.g. draw a sound flower, make a collage of sounds).
Videos are also uploaded to model the correct pronunciation of pure sounds for pupils and parents.
Additional activities may also be uploaded to help foster independence in other areas of the Early Years Framework, for example fine motor skills.
