Please try and read with your child at least 15 minutes a day.
You can access lots of resources around our reading scheme, including reading further books online, once they have finished the books sent home on the Oxford Owl Website:
Other websites that help with reading:
Primary homework help
loads of reading activities including books read to you and books to read yourself. Ideas across whole curriculum
big range of reading activities as well as spelling and all areas of maths.
Nessy - www.nessy.com - they have a free trial but a cost afterwards.
Reading eggs www.readingeggs.co.uk - also a free trial but a cost afterwards
Please look at the useful websites list and the advice from advisory teacher for lots more online ideas.
Remember you don't have to only read from the scheme, anything that is interesting is good.
Take a look at this website and follow the link to home learning resources. For those of you with sensory needs, such as the need to have regular movement breaks and pressure activities, look at the sensory section, it has some good ideas that can be done in the garden.
Gloucestershire Libraries have also got activities listed:
Gloucestershire.gov.uk/library-services-for-education and click on resources for home learning.
Below are worksheets that will support the outcomes on your child's My Plan. They can be used alongside Nessy if you would like a different format or just feel you need a break away from a screen. The 2 methods of learning will compliment each other.
If you have a printer, then the sheets can be printed out but if not, the can be done just as effectively, if not more so by writing in the pink book e.g. if it says underline the words, writing the words out is also a good way to practise and promotes muscle memory. Certain sheets may work this way better than others.
Please remember we have recommended that children spend a minimum of 15 minutes 3 times a week working on their my plan targets but we are quite happy if you choose to do more! To fit this in, they can sacrifice part of an afternoon session to do this.
Spelling Made Easy
These Spelling Made Easy Worksheets are aimed at supporting children to incorporate sounds they have learned in isolation into their reading. The short passages repeat the sounds and are followed by supporting activities.
The best way to help your child is to choose a sound specified on their MyPlan or one you have seen them struggle with. Start by asking them to read the passage through, with help and repetition as needed then ask them to highlight words with the focus sound .Go over the other tasks and then allow them to complete them as independently as they can. When they have finished, go over what they have done, gently correct any errors and praise for their amazing work!
Spelling Made Easy Level 2
These are more challenging and involve a passage to read and then activities to follow. The first 2 questions are short tasks around text investigations of the sound being learnt and some other spelling activities and would be beneficial as would the last sentence structure activity.
Question 3, however, is a longer written piece and you may feel that as other English tasks are being completed you wish to leave that one out, which is totally fine. However, should you feel inspired, please go ahead!

If your child has an outcome concerning sentence writing on their My Plan such as using capital letters and full stops, commas in lists or ensuring all words are included, this can easily be incorporated into writing tasks set by the class teacher but here are some ways you give your child a little extra support;
