Achieving excellence for all children

within an inspiring and inclusive environment


Home Learning

Task: Reading


Please read lots of books at home or visit the local library to borrow some new ones. Please encourage your child to talk about the book and to ask questions if they do not understand. Don't forget to read poetry, non-fiction, magazines etc. together and also model how you use reading at home too. 


Please read the RWI words, ditties or stories a few times if possible. The children should be able to read everything they have brought using their knowledge of sounds or tricky words. The aim is to build confidence and fluency. If you would like any further support with this, please come in and have a chat.


Task: Phonics


Please keep reviewing previously learnt sounds and add new ones in. The aim is to recognise all the sounds speedily, as this will help with reading, so the more practice the better. Challenge them to read a word made of 3 of their known sounds.  


I have added the set 2 sounds practise sheets into the folder below. Click on the star, scroll down and you will find them labelled 'Set 2 handwriting.' I have also uploaded some videos to help practise reading words and reinforcing the speedy recognition of 'special friends'.  


I am changing the links below weekly, so please click on them to practise reading words at home. Thank you



Task: Maths


I have assigned some more activities on Mathletics.  If you have misplaced your login, please let us know so we can print another one for you. 


This week we have been learning to double a quantity by adding the same amount again. We have been working on knowing some of the facts 'off by heart' e.g. double numbers to 5. Please practise these if possible e.g with toys, sticks, you say a number and ask your child to double it and show with the correct number of jumps etc.



Thank you for your continued support and please upload some photographs of your child, enjoying their learning at home, to Tapestry. 



Summer 1 Home Learning Challenges


If you have any questions or want any help, with the Home Learning, please come and chat to a member of the Oak Class Team. Doing these activities at home really supports the learning we do in class. The more you can practise the letter sounds in fun, exciting ways the easier your child will find learning to read.  Thank you.



Curriculum Presentation


Thank you to all those parents who managed to attend the 'Curriculum presentation.'  If you couldn't make it, please have a look at the PDF of the slides. Please ask if you have any questions.
