But she probably didn't say how disappointed or otherwise she is if they're not on yellow by the end of the year. I don't think our Reception class even aims for yellow or anything like it. I get the impression a book with words in is doing well.
my daughter is in reception. we don't do any maths at home unless she requests to do a bit in the holidays. She reads every day and she sometimes writes something to go with Show and Tell stuff or she writes things herself randomly but we don't do any more than that.
I think in Y1 it's counting backwards from 20, number bonds to 20 and halving and doubling, adding and subtracting up to 20. Lots of Reception children can already do that and more. I don't think great strides are expected of them. There was a thread posted a while ago where a girl had written
The prinsess marreed her prins. But shee did not now wich prins and then a dragon took the wich away
or somesuch and one of the teachers said that would have been a story to be proud of in Reception. I can't comment on your daughter's reading because I don't know how she does it, but you probably have some idea of how well she's doing it.
Overall I get the impression that Y1 is where expectations are put on the children. I didn't see much sign of them in YR.
Hi everyone, hope you're all well. (i tried looking for a prev thread, hope its not been done before.)
I've been researching at what level of maths, reading and writing my DD 5 in reception should be at. I'm using counters with her to count, and do sums. Are there other ways to help so theres a variety? With writing, i get her to write how her day was (occasionally) but she usually gets her book out and write so i don't usually push too much Readingwise, she usually reads every couple of days and i read to her every eve
Just wanted to know, usually where should children be when going into year 1.
