Happy Home Learning Homework– Foundation Stage 1
This week we would like you to keep practising dressing and undressing yourselves! We have seen this week how hard you have tried changing into your nativity costumes. We would like you to all keep developing your life skills remember to tell your grown-ups, “I can do it”

Foundation Stage 2 Homework
For literacy homework this week we would like to direct you to a fabulous website to support phonics learning. This can be found at and can also be accessed through our school website (just type Espresso in the search bar). Our school login is: student27402 – password: bramley.
Please access the foundation stage phonics section of the website where a range of activities can be found. These include initial sound games and CVC segmenting and blending activities. The one you should access will depend on your child’s current developmental reading stage.
In maths we have practised forming numbers correctly. Please use the snake numbers in your child’s Home school diary to help them form numbers to 10 accurately in their homework book.

Maths – Can you find all the doubles to 6?
Literacy – Can you retell the Christmas story to your grown up?
