Reading at home
Please follow the link below and use the Oxford Owl books to continue with reading at home: please remember to only read the books for the level your child is currently working on, this should be pink or red books.
In Reception during Spring 1 we are working on Phase 3, for this we teach several sounds each week: please use the ideas below to help your child learn to recognise, write and use the sounds. Each group are working on different sounds, your class teacher will be able to inform you of which sounds your child is currently working on.

The Reception team are keen to ensure your child has access to lots of different learning tools throughout this current situation. We have created plans that you can down load for the full term, which goes week by week, these are the same activities that your child would be participating in if they were in class, although some activities have been modified so that they can be carried out at home. If you are unable to carry out the activity that has been selected for that week simply choose a different activity for that area of learning. We appreciate it is difficult to teach at home with all of the distractions around and are keen to support this by making learning at home fun and hands on! We have created some clips of ourselves carrying out Phonics, English and Maths sessions so you can play these to your children as though they are participating in a session at school. We hope these are beneficial and support your understanding of how we teach in school. Please do not hesitate to contact us through Learning book if there is anything you are unable to access or are unsure of.
