We have created this section of the website to assist parents and carers at this difficult time of school closures. Please check on your child’s year group page for further details of activities linked to their learning. Check these pages regularly for updates.
Reading books are available on Bug Club and activities have been set on Purple Mash and Abacus. Children also have home access to Oddizzi. Log in details for all of these are in reading record books.
Interactive resources and ideas
Reading & Phonics
All children have been allocated books on Bug Club to read. Individual reading books have been collected in and there are plenty of books available on the children’s accounts on Bug Club that they can read. Their individual log in details are in the front of their reading record books.
Phonics Play – https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/
This is a site dedicated to phonics. A lot of parents already know what phonics phase their child is on, however if you do not you can select each phase and read them through with your children. You will be able to easily identify where they are working at and try and push them onto the next stage. Please make sure you consolidate their learning first before moving onto the next phase.
Phonics is just one of the many components to help children with their reading and writing. Keep on reading as much as you can with the children as this makes a huge difference.
Children can use the site at home without their parents needing to subscribe. To access the resources all you need to do is log on using the following details.
