Welcome to Class 1!
Our Class Teacher is Mrs Willerton. Mrs Skinner also works in our class every day.
We follow the Read Write INC phonics scheme: https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/find-out-more/parents/
If you would like to help your child with reading here are some links you may find useful:
Phonics play – www.phonicsplay.co.uk
This is a very popular website we use regularly in our phonics lessons. Some
games are free, while others require a yearly subscription of £12. The
children enjoy the games and are very familiar with its content. Some of
our favourite games are –
• Buried treasure (pirates)
• Dragon’s den
• Picnic on Pluto
• Reading robot
• Investigating alternative spelling games (best bet, phoneme spotter)
• Cheeky Chimps
Read with Phonics - www.readwithphonics.com
There are some good games to practice blending of the phonemes
and segmenting the graphemes. The children particularly like the
'Phonics song' available on their website. A free app is also
available to download for android and iOS tablets.
Oxford owl - https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-abook/
You will find a good range of eBooks to read at home. It requires
you to register your email address first, but well worth it.
Teach your monster to read -
This is a brilliant resource with videos explaining the
letters and sounds. It allows the children to practice the
sound recognition and blending.
