Here is the link for the Talk for Writing Home School Booklets.

They are two weeks worth of literacy work attached with every booklet- so little and often is best for this type of work.

Please select the year group or best fit writing ability for your child and work through the booklets together.

I know we have a lot of Harry Potter fans in our class! I found a new website that JK Rowling has launched called 'Harry Potter at Home'.

Click on the picture to access the site.

 

Julia Donaldson is now reading one of her books each week!

The only access I can find so far is to go on Facebook and find 'The Gruffulo', it will be broadcast from there.

'A squash and a Squeeze' should be on there already.

Here is a link that has options to listen to a range of authors read their books. 

Hopefully it works!

Lexia at home

At Borrowdale School your child may be using a programme called Lexia Reading Core 5 which they use on our ipads. This programme helps the children with their reading and spelling skills. The children enjoy playing the educational games and we have seen a real improvement in their reading and spelling ability from using this programme. Your child is also able to access this from home. 

 

Your child can use Lexia through the internet by going to the following website:

 

 

When asked for your teacher's email, please input  r.smits@borrowdale.cumbria.sch.uk

 

Your child then needs to use the login and password that were provided. 

 

You can also download the Lexia App on iPad or Android tablets by searching for ‘Lexia Reading Core5 UK’.

Oxford Reading Owl

We know that regular reading for pleasure and parents showing an interest in children’s reading has a huge impact on children’s progress. This is why it forms the backbone of our homework approach. At school, we constantly look for opportunities to help families support their children with both reading and language development. The Oxford Owl website (click on image) is full of practical and proven tips, from children’s author Julia Donaldson, to help your children both engage with and get better at reading.
