How can I support learning at home?

Please see the link to the guidance from the Department of Education – What to expect, when?

This is a guide to your child’s learning and development in the early years foundation stage.



Numbers: children count reliably with numbers from 1 to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number. Using quantities and objects, they add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer. They solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.

Shape, space and measures: children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore 12 characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.

Common Exception Words


These are the Hunnyhill Exception words that we would like each child to be able to read and spell.  Exception words are words that cannot be sounded out phonetically but need to be learnt.


Please support your child at home by helping them to read and spell these words.  This will greatly help them to build up their reading fluency and independence in writing.

In Early Years and in Key Stage 1, we aim to develop children’s foundational knowledge of the number system and number bonds. Websites to support this are:
