Greenleaf Primary School & Nursery





 Here's a catchy song you can enjoy with your child. It will help them to learn their phonemes.

You can play it again and again. How many phonemes does your child remember? Do they remember the actions? Can they remember the phonemes with the volume turned off?

Here are Word Walls 1-14.

We have put these up for you to work through throughout the year and beyond. These words are really important when helping your child to read. If they know these words 'by sight' (not sounding them out), it really helps them to become more fluent readers. Please work at your child's level. We are aware that children are at different stages of reading, so have put them all up for reference.




Online Maths Games.

These games are great for number recognition, adding and taking away.

Learning numbers to at least 20.

Here, you can find activities to take us beyond numbers to 10.


"Wow Moment" vouchers

During their time in Reception, we are sure there will be lots of moments when your child does something that makes you say "WOW". So, here are some vouchers for you to write these "WOW MOMENTS" on. Just print a voucher, write about the 'Wow Moment' and we will put it in your child's Journey Book.

To further support the learning provided by your class teacher Oak National Academy is providing a collection of high-quality video lessons and online resources. Backed by the Government, it was created in response to the coronavirus lockdown and lessons from Reception to Year 6 can be found on here. This resource will also be useful if your child is self-isolating at home and can be used alongside the work set by your class teacher.

The children LOVED our Art week topic: Rainbow

We based some of our artwork around our Literacy Big Book and Maths learning. So, instead of going on a Bear Hunt, we went on a  Rainbow Hunt!

Look what we found at the end of the rainbow!
