Welcome to Reception!

 Things you can do at home

There are lots of things that you can do to support your child’s learning at home. Most of these are really simple things that you are probably doing without realising!


  • When you go to the supermarket, look out for numbers or letters that your child can recognise and challenge them to find others.
  • Talk about pictures in books, what they think is happening and what might happen next. They could also talk about which page is their favourite and why.
  • Look at shapes when you are out and about or at home. What shapes do they recognise? What do they know about the shapes?

There are lots of other helpful tips in the welcome pack that you received!


Most of all... HAVE FUN!
