Handwriting Practise using Letter Join
Using the website 'Letter Join' your child can learn to write the weekly letter with the correct formation. It is very important that the children learn to write letters correctly. This website includes instructions of how to write each letter the correct way and then gives lots of opportunities to practise. A demonstration video will also be added to Tapestry each week.
As well as reading books as a family for pleasure it is important that the children continue to practise their reading skills. The Oxford Owl website has many books that the children can attempt to read independently, similar to the books they have been reading at school. The link to this website is below. Once on the website click the 'My class login' button. There is then a username and password for each class to enter. Once you are logged on you can choose different books to read together. Enjoy.
