“Preparing our children for all of their tomorrows”












Recommended reads for year R.

Here are some useful resources for supporting your child at home.

Reading is such an important skill and it's good to keep those phonics ticking over daily.  Read Write Inc phonics have some very helpful videos for parents, such as how to say the sounds and games you can play to practise them.

Check out their website via this link.  https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/find-out-more/parents/

Below are some worksheets where children can practise letter formation of their sounds and writing words.

 The children learn to recognise their sounds in nonsense words that we call 'alien words'.

This helps the children to segment and  blend reading. 


Numberblocks  and Alphablocks on CBeebies is a great programme for reinforcing counting and number recognition through songs and short animations.  

Top marks is a good website with some fun maths and phonics games, that help to practise those skills the children need in Early Years and KS1

Twinkl and Teachers Pet have put together some free resources for you to download, including activities to keep children busy such as colouring sheets, word searches and easter activities. 

Keep reading stories with your children and enjoy as many books as you can. You might like to have a go at the reading challenge below. We understand though that sometimes it's nice for the children to listen to audio stories for those moments when you also have a lot to do or just need a break. World Book day have a selection of videos where stories are read. Don't forget CBeebies bedtime stories  too.
