Home Learning

We believe that a love of reading is crucial to open doors for our children at The Green Infant School and we partner with parents and carers to give children the best start to their reading journey. Books are at the heart of our curriculum at The Green Infant School and children will be heard read and read to several times throughout the week.


Our expectation is that children will read at home x4 a week with a parent/carer. This is recorded in the children’s planner. Regular reading will be rewarded with Dojo points! 


Children will take home each new sound they have been taught  in school and  should be able to read independently as well as x1 picture book of their choice, from the school library to share.


Each term children will receive a Home Learning Menu. There are lots of different optional activities to pick and choose from to last you the whole term. For our Foundation children, this starts after the first half term to allow out children chance to settle in.  Once you have completed an activity, please upload it using a photo/video on your Class Dojo portfolio. Each activity is worth 2 Dojo points!  As always, points mean prizes! Please find the menus on the Curriculum pages below.
