We are all looking forward to seeing you all on Monday 8th March where we can continue our learning together! A big well done for all your hard work whilst home learning - we are all so proud of you!
Home learning can be found further down this page. Please read the letter which explains the learning for each day - we have given you three lessons to complete each day. Please take a picture of your work and try and email it over to your class email address at the end of each day so that we can have a look at and respond to your wonderful work. 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.
If you have any questions then please also email the class email address where we will be happy to help you.
We hope you continue to work hard, stay safe and remain positive during this tricky time. We cannot wait to see you all as soon as it is safe to do so.

By the end of Year 1, we are aiming for children to be secure in using all the sounds from Phase 2 to Phase 5 in their reading. One of the best ways of becoming secure in these sounds is using flashcards daily.
Please refer to the information booklet below if you would like some ideas for phonics activities. There is also a useful glossary of phonics terms. We have also included all the sounds mats for your use.
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. 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.
