Here is some information that you may find helpful when using the GetEpic website. Your child will be allocated three books to read each week. As the book levelling system is different to what we are used to, we have chosen books that are a best-fit match to the colour bands in RWI system. Unfortunately there are some American spellings such as ‘mom’ and ‘gray’ that you will need to explain to your child.

 

It is important that you sit with your child when they are reading so that you can support them. Remind them to use their phonics or if your child is stuck on a tricky word, you can prompt them to look at what is happening in the picture to help them work it out. Don’t forget to take the quiz at the end to check their understanding of the story.

 

Log on to the website to see your three new books each week.

Here is some information about the phonics play website. The sequence in which the phonic sounds are taught will be different to Read Write Inc. This site uses the governments ‘Letters and Sounds’ sequence which is set in phases 1-6. Some sounds appear at different points in the sequence that we are used to seeing, but they represent all the sounds that children need to learn.

 

We will ask parents to start at different phases according to the phonics group that your child was working in at school.

Maths

Maths 1

Well done for your impressive work using the MyMaths website. As we have now run out of material on that site, we are going to move onto using White Rose lessons. This is the scheme that we follow in school.

There are four video lessons available to watch each week. However, we will choose the most suitable ones to watch and post the information on this page every week. As we do not have a subscription for White Rose worksheets, we will upload some linked worksheets that you may like to have a go at.

 

Each video takes children through small steps in learning. Children may be asked to pause the video to have a go at an activity, therefore it would be a good idea for you to support your child through the video. You might like to have some scrap paper and small everyday items such as pencils or lego bricks to hand, to use for counting. Thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions, please email your class teacher.

 

Here is the White Rose home learning link:
