Oxford Reading Buddy

Oxford Reading Buddy helps your child to get better at reading. It contains hundreds of books that your child will enjoy, all matched to their reading level. Special ‘Coaching eBooks’ help your child to understand what they read. Quizzes check how they are doing and send results back to their teacher. Oxford Reading Buddy can be used on on desktops, tablets and mobiles.

Oxford Reading Buddy - books to read along side school book (at home).

 

I have set our weekly reading books on Oxford Owl so your child can read these at home. This will help them gain the fluency skills they need for during our phonics and guided reading sessions in school.

Please ask your child the questions at the end of the book and do the quiz if you are able too.

 

Thanks,

Mrs Grainger

What an absolute delight the children have been today.

So well mannered and polite with other children in the park. They spoke beautifully to the staff serving the ice-creams. 

Hopefully the sugar has worn off now 🤣

The children have been working super hard these last few weeks completing lots of end of year assessments. They did them all with a smile on their face and enthusiasm in their hearts.

I am really proud of each and every one of them for the amazing progress that they have made and shown me since I took over as their teacher in November. To say I am proud is an understatement. I am gutted we only have a few weeks left together before they spread their wings and head to upper Key Stage 1. I know they will carry on being just wonderful!

 

Thank you to all you lovely parents and carers for your continued support throughout these last few months. It has made my job a little easier heart

 

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and they enjoy a well deserved rest after their amazing hard work and determination to do well!!!

 

Love Mrs Grainger xx

Please be accessing as many of the phonics sounds at home as possible to help your child secure any they are finding tricky. Focus on the alien words with them. You can even get them to make words themselves using the 'special friends' that they are learning about.

For example; special friends 'i-e'. Fred talk, s p i-e t m. Blend, spitem.

 

We are currently completing our last assessment with them before their official check in June.

 

If your child is part of the booster sessions can you please ensure they are on time and not missing any of the sessions.

 

Thank you.
