Reading at home 

During this time, escape reality by sharing a book with your children. This could be a book that you are reading to them or a book that they read to you. Why not also take a photo of yourselves sharing this book and send it into us. We would love to see it! 


Below, I have attached some examples of books that you may have at home that could be shared with your children:




Years 2 – 6 should now all have a logon for myon – an online reading portal linked to their Accelerated Reader. Your child/children will be able to choose reading books for pleasure in the library area but also their class teachers will be allocating books for them with questions as part of their reading home learning in the projects section of the website. If you do need any logon details, please contact the school. 


Whole school activity 1 week beginning 04.05.20 


Draw an image of your favourite book character and write a sentence or paragraph explaining why you like this character or how they inspire you. 


Send your images to


Those children, who have finished their physical AR book are able to take the quiz online by visiting this link. They will need to add in with their AR password not their MYON password. If they cannot remember their password, please get in touch with me (Mrs Brettle), my email iabove. 


Phonics teaches children how to speak, read and write so is an important milestone for children. To help support children with Phonics: 


T4T’s and Nursery – explore sounds in the environment (Phase 1); 

Reception – Phase Two – Three and ending with Phase 4; 

Year 1 – Phase four – five

Year 2 – Phase Six 


Please see the sounds explored in each phase below: 

                             Phase 1 

                            Phase 2 

                             Phase 3 

                             Phase 4 

                             Phase 5

Also, regularly share nursery rhymes and other rhymes with your children visit singing hands on YouTube for some excellent rhymes and it encourages the use of Makaton that we use in school.
