Every day children should have a chance to practice key skills and activities. This will be daily reading, writing and maths. Extra suggestions will be added to the website regularly but we would like to emphasise the importance of daily literacy and numeracy practice.

 

Reading – It is so important that you keep up with your reading at home! Many of you will have lots of books you can read at home or share with your child. Encourage them to read to you as often as they can. We strongly urge you to create a free account with Oxford Owl.  Once you have done this, if you then click on the Oxford Reading Tree tab you should then have access to 106 free e-books. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/

 

Phonics - Please carry on helping your child to practice their blending and segmenting skills. Phonics Play have now made all the resources and games on their website free. https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/

 

Writing – Children should enjoy writing so make it fun by finding a story starter to get them inspired. Activity Village has some great ideas to get them excited to write. https://www.activityvillage.co.uk/story-starters

 

Maths - Key skills children can practise at any time:

  • Counting forward and back to 100
  • Counting in multiples of 2’s, 5's and 10's to 100
  • Spelling days of the week / months of the year
  • Spelling numbers words up to twenty
  • Recognising / writing numerals to 100

There are so many great maths games free to access online. Check out Top Marks and challenge your family to see who gets the best score. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games

Guided Relaxation for Kids - to help us let go of our worries...

Peace Out | The Bye Bye Boat Jaime reads a calming guided relaxation to help us deal with anxiety.

The YELLOW literacy books that came home with the children would be perfect to use as a diary or daily journal. At the end of the day find time and encourage them to write. Here are some ideas for them to get started:

- Make a list of all the great things you did today.

- Write three things that you are grateful for.

- What would you wish for tomorrow? Dream big!
