At Wigginton we follow the Department of Education document 'Letters and Sounds' to teach phonics and reading. We do this alongside the 'Jolly Phonics' songs which provide the children with a visual song, sound, action and story. This video shows the songs in the order that they will be taught in class. It is a great way to practise phonics with your child in a fun way.
Links to websites for home learning
A great blog online which has some wonderful ideas for provision and play based learning for children at home and at school.
Great site to practise recognition of Phase 2 and 3 sounds which we have been revising in class.
This website allows children access to a wide range of e-books at an appropriate book band level. It is free to make an account on the website. This is a valuable resource if you cannot access the books in school.
Good practice for counting forwards and backwards from any small number.
Practice in sequencing shape patterns.
Practice in developing the language of comparison – longest, shortest, etc.
