Twinkl Phonics activities

If you don;t have a printer do not worry. Open the activities on a device for you child to refer to or copy them.

Here are some writing resources to support you with your writing at home. There will be writing tasks linked to the weekly story that we put up below. There are also some generic writing frames that you can adapt to anything that you have been up to together.

E.g. Writing instructions for...

Writing a story about...

Writing a recount of your day...

Use the RWI mat to the left to help you to spell. You have received a couple of these in the past, so may already have it printed off.
