Phonics

In school, we have a daily phonics lesson to teach reading and writing. Log on to the Active Learn website to access lessons and activities. I know some of you have already been using this website, but if you have not already done so, your child has a username and password and activities have been allocated according to your child's learning needs. 

 

username: your child's name and first letter of their last name-e.g. SamH

password: Shenley

school code: gpwk

Once logged in, you will see the screen below:
Click on the 'My Stuff' tab.
Using the arrow on the right, scroll through to the end where you will see the activities last added.

Complete one lesson (about one sound) each day. 

 

Once you have completed a lesson, have a go at some of the games already allocated. If your child is confident with blending sounds to read words, they will have been allocated reading books which appear as an item on 'My Stuff'. These are the same books as those the children bring home with them and, once completed, they are stored in the 'My Library' tab so they are available for re-reading, which is great for developing fluency.

 

The children all love our phonics lessons. If your child would like to play some of the games we play online in class, have a look at the Phonics Play website.

Please also practice the activities in your child's phonics pack daily. The need to recognise each letter by saying the sound. They also need to be able to write the letter when they hear a sound. Have a go at reading and writing some of the words suggested in the pack.
