Please try and do 5 minutes on Numbots daily. We ask that you please focus on Numbots and addition -subtraction and number as this is a very important foundation that needs to be solidified in year 1 (TTrockstars and timestables is suggested for year 2 onwards - in year 1 we focus on skip counting in 2's 5's and 10's). Numbots does start off simply but moves on fairly quickly whilst establishing good number knowledge and concepts.

Please watch the clip in the web link below which will help your child to correctly pronounce each phonic sound. Not only will this prepare them for their phonics screening later this year but will also help develop reading skills.
Teaching of Handwriting and Spelling
Please keep practising the year 1 Common Exception Words that they need to be able to spell correctly in their writing by the end of year 1.
You can visit the PE Homelearning Hub from the 'TB Sports' an Education and Sport Partnership. It also includes a yoga and mindfulness section.
Why encourage Reading?
Regular reading and listening to stories at bedtime has a clear link to success at school in all areas of the curriculum. Albert Einstein was once asked by a mother what she could do to help her son to be successful. His reply was to read fairy tales. When she explained that she hoped her son would become a scientist like Einstein his reply was to read more fairy tales. The most important thing you can do to support your child at home is to read to them and listen to them read.
