Reading, Writing, Spelling and Grammar
In addition to the daily tasks on Oak National Academy please read:
While your child is off please continue to hear your child read daily and record this on either Class Dojo or Tapestry.
In EY please see Tapestry for specific phonics and Literacy challenges. You will also have sound flashcards and green/red word cards to practise daily.
In Class 1 you will have been sent home Phonics Activities and/ or flashcards.
In Class 2 and 3 there will be CGP Reading Comprehension Workbooks sent home for your child to complete.
If your child already quizzes on Accelerated Reader please ensure they are able to continue to do this.
You can access a range of free ebooks on the oxford owl website.
