Hello St Bernadette's
We are very excited to see all your lovely faces on Monday 8th March. We have all really missed you.
Miss Finaldi has sent a newsletter explaining the return to school information. Any queries please do not hesitate to email me. Please ensure children return to school in full uniform.
For the final week of home learning please complete your lessons each day but instead of emailing please bring in your work on Monday 8th March for us to see. Remember you don’t need to print all of the information and activity sheets out, you can just use the information and respond on paper.
Please remember it is vitally important that your child reads every day, sounding and blending words. Sound out words, and they have to guess what you are saying are really good ways of helping your child hear and blend words together e.g. please pass me the

If you have any questions, then please also email the class email address where we will be happy to help you.

Phonics and Reading Websites
Please log in to our reading scheme called Bug Club. The website is: www.activelearnprimary.co.uk
The scheme has a comprehensive collection of high quality reading books for the children to read at home. In your child’s reading record, there is a login in and password so your child can access this resource at home. If you have any issues with your child’s login and/or password, please speak to your child’s teacher.
There are lots of useful websites with phonics information and games. Here are a range of different ones you could use at home:
The Letters and Sounds website has lots of information, resources and games linked to each of the phonics phases.
Oxford Owl has a whole selection of free eBooks, some with linked activities. These are banded according to age group.
We like Mr Thorne does Phonics. This is a link to his YouTube channel so be aware there may be adverts/videos may auto play.
Phonics Play has a selection of free and fun resources you can use at home with your child. It also gives you the option to create your own account on the website however this will need to be paid for.
To access daily lessons that makes phonics learning easier please watch videos and read flashcards on Monster Phonics: https://monsterphonics.com/home-learning-in-the-covid-19-lockdown/year-1-home-learning/
