Year R

Home learning for 13.1.21

Home Learning for Tuesday 12th January

Home Learning for Monday 11.1.21

Welcome to the Year R Website Page!


Your child has been given various things to support their learning at home. They should have some keywords to practise at home with you, a login for Bug Club where they can read books and an Education City login to enable them to play games to support their learning. Below you will also find a full list of the Year R Keywords, the handwriting rhymes that we use to introduce letter writing to the children and 2 PowerPoint presentations explaining how we have introduced each letter and sound so far. When introducing new letters to the children, we use 'pure sounds' to help support their reading and spelling of words. As this might be different from what you are used to, the PowerPoint explains how to make the sounds and why we teach them in this way.


If you have any queries, please make a note in your child's green Home-School Communication book or have a chat with us at the door when picking up or dropping off. If your message gets missed, please feel free to call and leave a message or send an email to
