Puffin Class Summer Ideas

There are a wide range of resources available to keep your children busy during the summer holidays which will support their learning and development ready for the new term.  These activities are not compulsory and are just here to provide ideas.

Spelling and Phonics

You should have a list of common exception word spellings for your child from the start of the closures - I have included these as links below.  You could practice these as good preparation for the new term.  You can also practice your spellings using the Spelling Shed App (Stage means year group.)

You can practise your phonics via the Monster Phonics Apps. 

Maths

Number Fact Practise: NumBots App

White Rose Home Work Books (Practise the year they are currently in and previous years if needed)
