Home Learning (FS1)

Governors At St Albert The Great

In FS1 we encourage parents to do things with their children when at home to help extend their learning:

  1. Read the children’s library book that they choose each week
  2. Encourage you child to develop an understanding of number by counting, pointing out numbers of importance, eg your house number
  3. Play rhyming games to help develop your child's understanding of rhyme and alliteration
  4. Encourage your child to name shapes and colours in the environment
  5. If your child wants to write their name, remember to only use a capital letter at the beginning of their name, and the rest in lower case
