Welcome to our Home Learning page!
If your child is self-isolating, please follow the links below to access home learning.
Your child should to continue to practice their weekly spellings, which can be found in the Year One Spelling Log. I have attached a copy of this below.
Your child should work through the booklet, beginning at Unit 1, and completing each set of spellings at least twice to help embed their learning. It is very important that your child can pronounce, read and use the words they are spelling. A guide on how to support your child's spelling is provided in the front of the Spelling Log.
It is vital that your child continues to practice their phonics on a daily basis. Sound mats have already been sent home with Phases 2, 3, 4 and 5 and I encourage you to recap these sounds with your child each day, alongside completing the daily phonics lessons. Copies of these sound mats are provided below, alongside a range of resources to support your child's phonic knowledge.
We also use Phonics Play regularly in school which is available at www.phonicsplay.com. Simply choose the phonics phase for each game. At the moment, we recommend choosing Phase 4 and 5.
Additional phonics support can be found at www.home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/learn-to-read-phonics
In Year One, our focus is for your child to develop pleasure in reading and a motivation to read. This will, in turn, support their understanding and increased vocabulary. Whilst we are unable to send physical books home, please make use of our online reading programme ‘Rising Stars’. A selection of books have been assigned to your child at their current reading level, with a comprehension quiz for each one. You can access ‘Rising Stars’ at www.my.risingstars-uk.com. If you have any problems logging in, please let Mrs Cole know.
There are many other ways to support your child’s reading at home. The most effective of these is to read to your child on a regular basis. This should include a range of texts including fiction, non-fiction, poems and nursery rhymes. You could also read instructions to your child, recipes or even leaflets for places you would like to visit.
