PHONICS: This weeks focus: zz, qu, ch (Phase 3 revision).

Phonics Play is offering free subscription during school closure. This enables you and the children to have full access to the Phonics Play resources. Please spend some time, this week, to familiarise with the site and resources.

Any online game must be checked first by an adult and closely monitored. Children also benefit from applying the sounds they are learning through writing them into sentences as well as reading them.

READING: Oxford Reading Owl is a free resource that has increased its available resources during school closure. It has a fantastic selection of Oxford Reading books for the children to read at their level.

  1. Follow the link: https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/.
  2. Click on ‘Browse E-books’
  3. Click on ‘free e-book library’. 
  4. Choose a book

As well as listening to the children read, it also benefits them to hear adults read and discuss the story.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY: As well as having fun in the garden for daily exercise (throwing and catching, running, skipping, bouncing on a trampoline, etc), some other fun routines for the children to follow are:

  1. Wake Up, Shake Up Lazytown
  2. Cosmic Kids Yoga.
  3. Joe Wicks Daily PE lessons.

These can be typed into a search engine by an adult who will then need to monitor them.

Have fun!
