Reading is a vitally important skill and enables children to access all parts of their learning. This is why we would like to see children reading as much as possible at home during this time. 


There are two Reading Challenges set up on Dojo portfolios for children to be working on at the moment, which we hope will provide them with some encouragement. We would love to see as many of you as possible joining in with these.


Don't forget, you have access to a wide range of books, eBooks, audio books and phonics resources on Big Cat Collins.

Oxford Owl is another fantastic website which has a huge library of free eBooks for you to access as well as an abundance of resources for other subjects.

An important part of learning to read is having a secure knowledge of Phonics to decode texts. If your child is in EYFS or Key Stage 1, their teacher will be setting regular Phonics lessons. However, there are lots of other resources you could use to support your child with this at home including for children in higher year groups who find reading challenging. 


This are the songs we use in school to support the children's knowledge of sounds:


Song of Sounds (kids version) - YouTube


Song of Sounds - Stage 2 - YouTube


Song of Sounds 3 - YouTube


You can also find many different website with Phonics games and printable activities to support your child. These are just a few of the free ones we think are really useful.




Phonics Games for the Classroom and Home - Phonics Bloom


Letters and Sounds, English Games for 5-7 Years - Topmarks


Phonics - KS1 English - BBC Bitesize


Free Phonics Worksheets & Activities | Monster Phonics


If you have any questions or concerns about how else you can support your child with their reading, please contact their class teacher for support and advice.
