Concept carrot is a clever, clever carrot. He looks here; he looks there; learning as he goes. And when he comes home, he tells us a story.

Concept Carrot helps EYFS to learn new words that are introduced in our learning, each child has been provided with a Concept Carrot board.  Each week your child will be given a word to focus on during their home learning. Can you use this word in your house to create stories, could you use it when you are out shopping?

This week’s word is

Home Learning                                                            24th January  2020

To explore the meaning of  key vocabulary linked to our next class book:

'The Gingerbread Man'

Can you identify any of characters? What do you know already about the Gingerbread Man?

We will be learning the new vocabulary throughout the week and learning how to use them in sentences.




Books will be changed Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Our aim is to develop children's passion for reading and therefore we encourage them to take books home to share with you.

We have found that ten minutes a day one-to-one reading with an adult at home can make a positive difference to the children, and therefore we have included this as daily homework. Every child has a reading log, and we kindly ask that you sign this on the evening your child has read and return it to school the following day, alongside their reading book.

It is important that children have time to discuss the book they are reading, and with this you will have a better understanding about vocabulary your child understand and how much they are understanding what they are reading or listening to.  


We encourage parents to read alongside your child, draw about the book, ask questions and even role play part of the story, all of which will help with developing a passion for reading.
