Blue text = links to websites and documents
Week 9 ~ Week Beginning 15/6/20
Daily speed sound review - Set 1 Sounds
Daily RWI lessons available here
*Children are not taught Set 3 sounds in Reception so please do not worry about trying to these, this comes later on in year 1. Its more important to focus on embedding the sound knowledge of Set 1 and 2. Ensuring your child can spot these sounds in words, can you child fred talk words aloud with those sounds in and write them independently?
To see the full list of RWI set 1, 2 sounds alongside their rhymes click here.
Usually during this term at school we have a big push on writing; preparing the children for Year 1. Please try (where possible) to encourage your child to practise writing phrases and sentences about anything and everything. Each of the daily English lessons below give opportunities for writing to support you at home.
Week Beginning 6/7/20
For this week's home learning, we have two exciting Project's to choose from. As a break from the recent home learning format, children can choose from two topics by clicking on their selection and then choosing from a range of activities on the documents shown which covers the whole curriculum. It is completely up to you how many activities are completed and how you organise your time.
As always, we'd love to recieve some examples of what you have been up to by sending photos or messages to:
We hope you enjoy your learning!

What can I do, as a parent or carer, to help my child stay safe online?
1. Enable Parental Controls on your home internet.
2. Encourage your child to use 'Safe Search' search engines. http://www.safesearchkids.com/
3. Be aware of how your child is accessing the internet. Although the legal age requirement to have Facebook, Instagram and many other social media sites is 13, some children still access and use some or all of these.
Parents should also be aware of the many games, including X-Box live and Fotnite that allow children to communicate with others whilst gaming. 'Yoursphere' has some great advice about ensuring privacy settings are in place to keep your child safe whilst online.
4. Have regular conversations with your child about their use of the internet. Click the image below as it provides a simple way of getting the message of E-Safety across to your child
You can download a comprehensive guide covering many aspects of e-safety here:
