Phonics Screening Past Papers 
These resources are really useful to help your child with blending and segmenting words. Remember to recognise any digraphs/split digraphs and alternate sounds within these words. They can sometimes be tricky!
As we are very pleased to hear how brilliantly you are doing with your home learning, from this week, you can earn GEMS for completing some of your daily activities. Make yourself a GEMS chart and reward yourself with 1 x GEMS each day when you have accessed your daily maths and English activity on the website (or the learning set by your adults at home).
You can also give yourself an extra GEMS if you complete an additional activity which has been set either by home or by school!
If you bring in your GEMS chart when we return to school, then we will add them onto your school record sheet.

Dear Parent/Carers,


To support pupils at Woodloes School with their mathematical learning, please find attached a letter showing how to register for 'Maths with Parents'.

This is an interactive website where your class teacher will assign you tasks for your child to complete with you.  There are videos and support on how to complete the task with your child/children.

Please login using the details found on the letter and then await for tasks!

The first task will be launched on Tuesday 21st April.  This will give you time to register over the Easter break.

Please find attached 'FAQs for parents' to support you with this and if you have any further questions then please email ( the school and your queries will be forwarded to me (Mrs Khaira).
