Home Learning

To support children’s home learning, I will be posting any details and information on our class page about Spelling and any other activities that we would have carried out in class or that I think will be useful for the children to complete while at home in the upcoming weeks. I appreciate that this is a difficult time and I will try to communicate as best as I can to help your teaching and learning from home.

Phonics and Read Write Inc Spelling 

As you are aware, Ladybird class complete the Read Write Inc Spelling programme on a daily basis. As this is not an online programme that parents can access, while schools remain closed I will try my best to post the relevant weekly information so you can cover what would have been covered in class, but at home.

It will also be useful for children to stay familiar with letters and sounds phase 3, 4 and 5 as we refer to and use these sounds daily during guided reading and literacy lessons. Below are some sound mats, flash cards and key words to help you with this.

Phase 2 – 5 Tricky Words Phase 3 Sound mat Phase 5 Flash Cards Phase 5 Sound mat Common Exception Words

The Twinkl website is free to parents at the moment. Phase 6 letters and sounds is equivalent to the Spelling programme that we use in class. Any Phase 6 activities that your children can complete during this time will be very useful. Simply search ‘Phase 6’ to locate these resources. https://www.twinkl.co.uk

Education City

As well as this, I have posted plenty of Maths, Literacy and Science activities for your children to be working through online. I have posted a lot as I know every child works at a different pace but there is no expectation for children to complete them all in a set amount of time. I can see when they have been completed so I can add more when needed. Log in details have been sent home in reading diaries this week.
