Heymann Primary & Nursery School

Inspiring and motivating our children
to be the best they can be


If you are interested in better supporting your child's development in reading and maths, here are a few thing that may help you. The school follows the White Rose curriculum for maths and the Little Wandle Phonics scheme for early reading.

Most importantly, a range of life skills and a passion for reading with your child will be the greatest influence you can give your child

Little Wandle (Phonics)

During their time at nursery, children will be learning to identify sounds in words and articulate those sounds. Look at the Little Wandle website to find out more. We suggest looking at how to say the sounds in the "Reception Autumn 1" and "Reception Autumn 2". Nursery age children are not expected to recognise or write letters.

We have also included all the rhymes that the children learn across the year in our "Reading and Rhymes" section of our Nursery Page

White Rose Maths

For maths, simple spotting numbers, counting in the environment and talking about thing you see will enhance your child's skills. Maths is a practical subject that can be bought into any part of your day. Try counting objects at the dinner table, using different containers to pour and fill in the bath or describing what lego brick you might need to finish a model!
