Please find below an information leaflet to help you support your child's learning at home.

Home Learning Daily Essentials:  (Resources to support some of these tasks can be found below)

- Reading: You can access a free eBook collection on Oxford Owl from Oxford Reading Tree that includes many of the books we use in school . All the eBooks in this collection are tablet friendly and have audio playback on each page. They can be accessed here (you will need to register for free): https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page

You can also access ‘Teach Your Monster To Read’ free of charge on the following website: https://www.teachyourmonstertoread.com/ (you will need to register for free). It is an app we use on the iPads in school to consolidate children’s learning of Phase 2 and Phase 3 phonics from the ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme.

Please spend time reading with your child everyday. Encourage them to spot tricky words within a text. Can they predict what might happen next? Can they use the pictures to discuss how characters are feeling? Can they use the pictures to describe the setting? Encourage your child to use positional language and adjectives to extend their vocabulary.

- Alphabet: Practise the alphabet daily - do this forwards and backwards, in a quiet voice, a loud voice, silly voices. Ask your child to find a letter and to tell you which letters it comes after, before, or in between.

- Phonetic words: Encourage your child to read, spell and write phonetic words by segmenting and blending the sounds.

- Tricky words: Take time to spell some 'tricky' words using the letter names (rather than the sounds). Say a word and ask your child to spell it out verbally using the letter names. Then spell out a tricky word verbally yourself using the letter names for your child to write down.

- Counting: Use a numberline to count forwards and backwards to 20 and beyond. Practise counting in 1's, 2's and 5's. 

- Practise letter and number formation:  Practise good letter formation, using a pencil on plain paper. As we have introduced each letter, we have taught the children a rhyme to help them form each letter correctly. These rhymes can be found in the resources below.
