A few days absence:

If your child is away from school for a few days and they are well enough to complete school work, please:
- Hear them read their school reading book or a book from home of their choice. Please record this in their yellow reading record. 
-Practice counting to 20 forwards and backwards. Make it fun with jumping, climbing the stairs, star jumps etc! Could challenge them to say one more or one less than a given number. 

 - Practice reading and writing some of our 'tricky' words. Please see document below for some examples. 

- You might also use the internet to research any topics that are studied in school. Please see the planning documents section of the class webpage.



A week or more absence:

If your child is away from school for a week or more, it is important that they access the curriculum that their classmates are benefitting from. With this in mind, it is advisable that they have compete a maths, writing task AND phonics daily. I have added additional subjects as well. 


These tasks are designed for Autumn 1 curriculum. 

Phonic games:
Here is a list of website that contain useful phonic games. Please choose the correct phase for your child - you will find this on your school reading book. In the top right corner you will see a circle sticker and this will tell you what phase your child is on.
