Please find on this page some activities we would like the children to work through during the time they are spending at home to consolidate and keep their learning moving on.
We have included some phonics booklets, story writing activities and maths activities, this will enable the children consolidate what they have learned so far in Year 1.
We have included a list of useful websites that you can access for stories, maths, literacy and P.E. We hope these will keep them entertained and be familiar to them.
We would also like you to continue to listen to your child read and share stories as much as possible, to develop their accuracy, fluency and comprehension. Questioning the children on what they have read, what has happened and what they predict may happen will also be helpful for their understanding.
Could you continue to work on the Year 1 common exception words list enclosed reading and spelling of these.
Phonics Screening should take place in June and to help consolidate this could the children please complete the booklets enclosed and use the website www.phonicsplay.co.uk for activities and games, the children are familiar with this. We have also included some other websites children can access for phonics revision.
We would also like the children to be encouraged to play board games/games like snakes and ladders, dominoes, Guess Who, Frustration, etc, to encourage turn taking, description, counting forwards and backwards etc.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support at this unprecedented time. We hope to see everyone back into school as soon as possible.
Good luck and keep safe and well.
