Please follow this link to find out more about this great online reading game-based programme:
If you like the look of it, you will need to register online and then will have access to another tool to be able to support your child on their phonics journey in a fun and accessible way. The app can also be purchased for a one-off fee from the App Store or Google Play.
Many thanks - The EYFS & Key Stage 1 Team.
Today, the children and I looked at the characters in the Oxford Reading Tree books, we will meet them lots in our reading books:
Please look below for the videos that I mentioned in your child's reading diary today. I have also attached a downloadable booklet informing you about the progression in Letters and Sounds - usually in Class R children work on phase 2, 3 and 4 as the year progresses. Letters and Sounds is the programme we use to teach your child synthetic phonics which helps your child to read and spell. Please, if you have any questions, contact us through the agreed channels - thank you.
I hope your child is enjoying the 'Teach your monster to read' app! Here is another useful site for helping children with their reading. https://www.phonicsbloom.com
The Department for Education has recommended a list of apps to aid children's learning during Reception and KS1. To celebrate being included on this list one of the providers of these applications has made their app free on ipad, iphone and android device. This is a limited offer until the Friday 28th February. Tomorrow!
We have the app installed on all of the ipads within school and will be providing KS1 children with logins next week. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of this short limited time offer. Your child will then be able to login with the accounts provided to them next week.
Practise some of the spelling rules we have been learning this week:
