You have received letters home about our Big Cat ebook library. We have introduced this as we are not currently sending Reading Books home, in line with our Covid-19 Risk Assessment.
We will be changing the books weekly for you to read with your child as you would a physical reading book.
If you are unsure of the login it will be as follows:
The log in instructions are available for you to download and the website is https://ebooks.collinsopenpage.com/
We will be monitoring the children's engagement and children will be rewarded weekly with stickers in school.
If you have any questions, please come and ask.
Our focus texts for the Spring term will be 'At the Beach' and 'The Lighthouse Keeper's lunch'.
At the end of Year 1, normally the second week of June, children will sit the Phonics Screening Test. This seeks to test whether children have learned to decode words using phonics to the required level. Children are expected to sound out and blend graphemes to read simple words. Throughout the year, we will be sitting various practise tests to help prepare the children and every day children will be taught two phonic sessions. Below you will find some phonic assessment materials that may support you at home to help your child.
