Other websites to try.....

 

Phonics Play

This website provides lots of free phonics games to play.  This website provides games to help children to practise blending and segmenting skills and sight word recognition.

 
Go Noodle is a fantastic website that offers lots of free physical activities to children. They can choose to participate in guided dances, relaxation or mindfulness.
 
ICT games provides lots of fun, interactive English and Maths activities. The Maths activities are broken down into sections such as number, addition and subtraction - all of which will be great to focus on. Many of the English games focus on phonics and recognising and spelling high frequency and tricky words.

 

Some more.....

https://speechandlanguage.info/parents - this website should be up and running by the end of 20.3.20. It will provide speech and language resources for parents to use at home with their child.

Me and You. How do you do?

 

We are very excited to get to know you and your family this year. We can’t wait to spend time with you in class or visiting you at home. We have been working hard to make the environment as stimulating and inviting as possible. We cannot wait for you to play, explore, investigate, discover and create in them! I wonder what you might do here.......

 

 

 

 

Thanks so much to all of you who have signed up and are already posting on Tapestry. It gives us a fantastic insight into you as a family unit and each child as a unique individual.

 

If you haven't already posted on Tapestry, please do have a go. Do ask if you need some help with this. We will be looking out for your posts and we are sure you will be looking out for ours too!

 

Here’s to a settled, happy start to a new school year.
