  • Practice reading all words from the high frequency word/tricky word pack we gave you before lock-down (there is 100 in total) but it is not expected that YR children should know all of these before they start Year 1!  
  • Read your set books on Rising Stars - books will be uploaded at the start of the holidays to last the duration, you can re-read books if you would like to.  The school libraries are also running a summer virtual reading challenge. 
  • Complete tasks on your Doodle English - this is still available for the whole of the summer holiday
  • Spelling - practice spelling the words from your high frequency/tricky word pack that you have either now stuck in the back of your home learning book or on the orange card we gave you before lock-down. 
  • Phonics - keep practicing letters sounds and blends over the holidays particularly ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, oo, ure, air, ear, er, ow (n-ow) - use Phonicsplay, Letters and sounds and Teach my monster apps to support with this. 
  • Keep practicing your handwriting letter family groups, curly caterpillar, long ladder, robot, zig-zag monster.  Make sure you are starting and finishing at the correct points, also remembering which way round your letters should go.
