St John's

Church of England Infant School

A small school with a big heart, a great place to grow.





Home Learning

You are your child's first and greatest teacher!  We believe in collaborative teaching and learning at St John's, and we would love to hear all about the exciting things you and your children are learning about at home.


We have compiled a few websites to help with supporting your child's phonic knowledge and mathematical understanding. Watch this space for updated home learning challenges, learning-through-play ideas, and outdoor adventures.





We use phonics to teach our children to read and write.  We follow the Read Write Inc program and use elements of Jolly Phonics, which is full of exciting games, silly songs and actions.


Online games and videos are one fantastic way for your child to practise and apply their phonic knowledge at home.  They are also an excellent way for adults to familiarise themselves with the often slightly confusing world of phonics, too!

Pure Sounds

This is a very informative video about what letters really sound like! It sounds obvious, but often as adults we find it very difficuly to pronouce the 'pure' sound of the letter. We teach our children how to say these sounds, and this forms the basis of their ability to read and spell words.

Jolly Phonics

Jolly Phonics is another phonics programme that we use elements of to help us teach the children new sounds.  We use the songs and actions when we introduce a new sound.
