Hi Logan, When I click the links they are taking me to the login page for floppy phonics and oxford owl. Would you mind trying again or sending me a screen shot of what you are getting so I can fix it. :)

Welcome to EYFS' Learning Hub

This is where you can find ideas to support your child's learning, homework, as well as useful information about our weekly routines.  If we need to return to an online learning platform this page will be where you will find the relevant information.

PE

Please ensure your child is wearing PE kit on this day.  However, our physical development lessons and activities are not restricted to PE lessons. Please ensure your child is wearing the appropriate footwear as stated in our uniform information: plain black solid fully built-in shoe or plain black trainer with good support and grip.

Phonics

We have moved to Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised.  This is a complete systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP) developed for schools by schools.  For more information on this scheme and parental support please click the link below               

or see your class teacher.

We are also following the same scheme with our reading.  Below is an excerpt from the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised which outlines how reading will be taught and supported in our school:

 

"Supporting your child with reading

Although your child will be taught to read at school, you can have a huge impact on their reading journey by continuing their practice at home.

There are two types of reading book that your child may bring home:

A reading practice book. This will be at the correct phonic stage for your child. They should be able to read this fluently and independently.

A sharing book.  Your child will not be able to read this on their own. This book is for you both to read and enjoy together.

Reading practice book

This book has been carefully matched to your child’s current reading level. If your child is reading it with little help, please don’t worry that it’s too easy – your child needs to develop fluency and confidence in reading.

Listen to them read the book. Remember to give them lots of praise – celebrate their success! If they can’t read a word, read it to them. After they have finished, talk about the book together.

Sharing book

In order to encourage your child to become a lifelong reader, it is important that they learn to read for pleasure. The sharing book is a book they have chosen for you to enjoy together.

Please remember that you shouldn’t expect your child to read this alone. Read it to or with them. Discuss the pictures, enjoy the story, predict what might happen next, use different voices for the characters, explore the facts in a non-fiction book. The main thing is that you have fun!"

 

We record all our reading on Boomreader, formally known as goread, and we ask that you also record reading done at home on the app as well.  Please contact us if you have not received your login details or if you have an issues with the app.
