Animations of some of the best-known traditional nursery rhymes, many sung by BBC Children's TV presenters, with music that your children will love! They're an ideal resource to support a range of Early Years objectives, whether used in a nursery, reception class, or at home.
This collection of activities/ideas is here to help parents and carers find fun things to do at home with younger children.
Most of the ideas have an educational slant but remember learning when you're little should be play based.
So much quality learning can come from activities like helping with the washing, doing some gardening, baking, watching films, colouring, playing board games, writing letters to friends and relatives, reading stories, talking and just spending time together!
Read Write Inc. Phonics Guide for Parents and Letter Formation Sheets
Welcome to the Read Write Inc. page on Oxford Owl for Home.
Read Write Inc. is a popular phonics scheme. Like all phonics schemes, it teaches children the sounds in English, the letters that represent them, and how to form the letters when writing. Read Write Inc. Phonics includes reading books written using only the letters they have learnt at each level (and a small number of separately taught tricky words). The children will quickly feel confident and successful.
Here you can find lots of free resources to support your child’s learning.
Numicon is an approach to teaching maths that helps your child to see connections between numbers. From Oxford University Press, it supports your child as they learn early maths skills in nursery and primary school. It is a multi-sensory way of learning, which means your child learns by seeing and feeling.
Today's Number helps you to learn the numbers to 20. There are two different options to use. The first presents a random number of the day to work on, either from 1 to 10 or 11 to 20 depending on the range selected. The second gives the option to select select a particular number from 1 to 20, a useful option to those wishing to introduce students to the numbers sequentially.
The activities include a number formation activity which provides an animated model with start and end points as a guide, representing the number on ten frames, counting, identifying the numbers before and after and a number recognition task.
