Home Learning in Cronk Vane

Here are some links and activities for you and your child to do at home, if you so wish. In Reception we take a hands-on, fun approach to learning, with the emphasis on 'learning through play', so please don't get worried about any of the activities listed, they are only suggestions, and I only wish for you and your child to enjoy this special time together.

In Cronk Vane we love phonics! In school we use a trusted synthetic approach to phonics called 'Jolly Phonics,' alongside the systematic approach called 'Letters and Sounds'. Please use the 'Phonics' button above, where you will find lovely interactive resources for your child to engage and practice their phonics.
