Reading

For your child’s weekly reading activities the following website is outstanding - www.oxfordowl.co.uk. Click on ‘Oxford Owl for Home.’ You should then register as a parent for free. Once you have done this we recommend clicking on ‘Check your Read with Oxford Stage’ with your child and allow them to complete the assessment that follows. This will help you to find books suitable for your child’s reading level. Following this go to the ‘Free e- book library’ where you will find a vast option of reading books, some of which have associated activities. Ensure your child reads at least one of these books per week. It is important that children read at the appropriate level to enhance understanding and confidence with reading. Feel free to explore the wide variety of learning activities on this website as we feel they are useful for other areas of the curriculum, in particular Mathematics.

 

Comprehension

Focus- Read for information and find facts

  • Using your Reading Explorers booklet (sent home), complete ‘An interview with an evacuee’ comprehension (last page of booklet).
  • P3 children in P3/4D might like to check out Miss Calvert's P3 page (literacy lesson 4) as there is a video story called, 'A Brave Knight'. Don't forget to answer the questions too. 

Grammar/Punctuation

Focus- Revision of Full stops and capital letters

  • Don't forget that Studyladder will also have some games, for you to practice the correct placement of capital letters and full stops.
