I have added a link to our useful resources home learning page.
Here you will find the phonics mats that we use at school, number grids, and number lines.
I am finding it difficult to create a tab in Google Classroom with a link to some really useful resources and videos that will be used throughout home learning. Therefore I thought I would put these things on the webpage so that you can come here to find resources to support all in the same place.
One of the main things I would really encourage is to practice common exception words and our tricky words. This is because they will rely heavily on these words to read and to write. This is an excellent time to really get to grips with these words. The activities also provide a great chance for the children to work completely independently, this might give you some time to catch up on work emails and juggle work and home school. I will still assign this work on Google Classroom, but this page will have all the resources that will be used throughout. So it is a great place to come when you have a spare 15 minutes and want the children to have some time practicing on their own.
We use these in every phonics lessons, they will continue to support their sounding, reading, and writing.
Our PE days are currently on a Monday and Wednesday. We ask you to label all clothing clearly to avoid anything getting lost.
Star of the week
Each week one child will be chosen as Star of the week in recognition of their achievements throughout the week. This will be celebrated in class on Friday afternoon. 🌟
The children will be expected to read at least 3 times at home during the week. Please could you write in the name of the book and pages read and sign this in your child’s reading log. I will be collecting these in every Friday to monitor reading of the previous week. It is important that your child practises their reading at home to ensure they make good progress. This year we will be particularly focussing on fluency and expression. Children make better progress in these skills with books that they are familiar and comfortable with. Therefore, please try to read each book that is sent home at least twice.
