Extra Reading Materials
Oxford Owl have lots of free ebooks you can read online including some Biff, Chip and Kipper stories. There are also reading activities you can download as well. You can register for free here:
Remember once you have read a book, discuss the Three Sharings like we do in school. These are your likes and dislikes, connections to the story and any puzzles you may have thought of.
A blank timetable has been attached to the school app to help you plan out your learning for the week. A good way to start the day is to take part in PE with Joe Wicks. He certainly wakens you up!
Remember our weekly Sumdog competition as part of your maths learning. We have also introduced a spelling competition too!

Phonics, spelling and word recognition games
