Home Learning

3rd February 2023

Task: Reading


 Please read lots of books at home and talk about them with your child. Please talk about the front cover, blurb on the back and use the images to predict what it is about. Don't forget to read poetry, non-fiction, magazines etc. together and also model how you use reading at home too. 


If you have a Read Write Inc. book please share these a few times. Your child should be able to read them using their knowledge of letter sounds and sight words. If your child has a game to play, please 'Fred Talk' the words, let them blend to say the word and find the corresponding picture. Please remember to write in their reading diaries so it can be counted towards story wings.


Task: Phonics


 Please keep reviewing previously learnt sounds. 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 2 or 3 of their known sounds.  If you would like any further ideas, please come and have a chat. I have added some links to online games that the children may enjoy.



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 about 6, 7 and 8. We have introduced a ten frame and looked at ways that each number can be made. I have uploaded a support sheet to give further ideas for things you can do at home.



Spring Term 1 Challenges



Please find below the Home Learning Challenges for this half term. There are further explanations for some of the activities too. Please upload a photo or short video of your child's learning so we can share their success with them. Thank you.




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.

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.
