Reading Books: Book change day is a Friday. Your child will receive 2 reading books each Firday.

Please re-read these books to support your child with building up their fluency and confidence in word reading. If you would like further support with strategies for supporting your child’s reading at home then please do come and see me, I am more than happy to help.

On this free app, the children can select a phoneme and explore spelling different words that include it. The app provides you with letters to chose from to help.
Simplex Spelling Light:
On this free app, the children can select an appropriate phoneme. Words containing that phoneme are then read aloud to the children, which they can then spell using the letters provided. The words are also put into a sentence.
Year One enjoy using the website Phonics Play, which has many free resources, during phonics lessons to revist previously learnt sounds. Year One particularly like the game Obb and Bobb and Pick the Picture.
On this app, the children can answer different maths questions to achieve BINGO! Warning: There are adverts on the bottom of the screen.
