Please read with your child for 20 minutes each day. This could be a story book which you read, a phonics book which they read or a mixture of the two.
Oxford Owl have a library of free books which can be read on a phone or tablet.
Follow the link below and sign up yourself. You can then access a variety of books which are age-appropriate. Start on age 3-4 (Oxford Level 1) and work your way through as your child gets more confident.
Today we are going to be revising recognising the sounds that we have learnt already.
Go to ictgames.co.uk and click on English Games. Then click on Shark Sounds and select any set of sounds up to Set 7. The aim of the game is for your child to click on the correct sound as it is called out on screen.
Repeat the game a few times with different sets, focussing on the sounds which your believe your child needs to practise.
Today we are going to be ordering numbers to create number lines.
First practise counting up and down from 0-10 and 10-0 and then 0-20 and 20-0.
Then give your child numbers on pieces of paper from 0-10 and ask them to place them in order. Encourage the to count along if they need some support.
Then repeat the activity but going backwards.
If your child finds this easy, challenge them further by asking them to order numbers forwards and backwards from 0-20 and 20-0.
