Rainbow home learning is sent home each Monday and is returned on a Friday in your homework bag.  There are a variety of activities included from week to week (one for each night) – these can include numeracy, literacy, phonics, pencil control, cutting skills and more practical games and activities to work on together. 

As well as this, reading books are sent home to share together until the children begin more formal reading.


In Rainbows, we base our topics around a book which covers a social or emotional aspect of learning. Our literacy and numeracy activities are linked to that book too.

In our play, we have activities that are linked to our book.  We have been painting, making collages of a lion, using playdough to make safari animals, playing on the safari mat with animals and playing in the home corner.  We love dressing up too!

We are working hard on our phonics (following the Jolly Phonics scheme) and trying our best to write our letters confidently using Handwriting Without Tears.
