Many parents have been asking about how they can help support their child’s learning during
the holidays.  It is really important that your children have lots of free time in the holidays to
enjoy talking with you, playing with you and getting lots of fresh air.  However, if you would
like them to do a little practice each day to help make sure they don’t forget all their new
learning, here is a list of a few fun online activities they (and you!) might enjoy.  
 
These activities are all about phonics as this will be a big focus for us next term in preparation
for the Year 1 Phonics Screening Test that all Year 1 children will be taking in June.
 
If your child is in a reception phonics class:
