Speed Sounds

Please feel free to use this video across the summer, to help your child practise their speed sounds in preparation for September. It is under 2 minutes long but will really help to build their confidence.


Welcome to our reflective area! In school, we have collective worship each morning. If you would like to take part in this daily reflection at home, you will find the planning and resources needed below. Each day, we have a short discussion, listen to a story, sing a song and say a prayer together. This area will be updated each week, to match the learning taking place in school. The children will be familiar with the songs and may even know some actions too! 

PE Challenges

Mrs Bigley has sent through some more activities for you! Please do not feel that you need to do them all - just pick and choose the ones you would like to try!

Reading at Home


Have you checked out Oxford Owl for reading books? There are some fantastic reading books for you to share with each other.  Our Class login details are penguinclassstm and the password is crab. 






There is also another website you can access for fun games which allows your child to practise phonics and reading. It is called Teach Your Monster To Read and is free to use on computers (there is a charge to use on other devices such as iPads). It follows Letter and Sounds which is how phonics has been taught, alongside RWI, in Penguins Class.





Have fun reading together!
