Oxford Owl for Home
At Avenue, we always promote the importance of children learning to read well and developing a love of reading. By reading a range of books and genres regularly at home, you can help your child to develop confidence and enjoyment in reading. Reading is a key life skill and develops vocabulary which in turn will improve your child's writing and communication skills.
We are very pleased to launch our new subscription to ‘Oxford Owl for Home’. ‘Oxford Owl for Home’ provides access to a collection of tablet-friendly eBooks and helpful tips and activities for parents to support children’s learning at home.
To access the eBooks, visit the Oxford Owl website www.oxfordowl.co.uk/
All of the reading scheme books we use at school will be available through the Oxford Owl eBook Library, which should make it easier to select an appropriate book. This website will provide extra opportunities for reading at home and support your child to improve their reading skills.
To support your child with online learning during school closure, you can use the link below to access the Oak Academy learning platform. There are also lots of educational games and activities on the BBC Bitesize link below.
Blended Learning Autumn
Please find attached Nursery’s ‘Blended Learning’ opportunities. If your child is self-isolating and is well enough, there are two activities for them to do per day. Please can you share these on Tapestry. (You can upload a photo and/write a short comment about what they have done.) We also encourage you to read with your child daily, discussing the illustrations and asking questions. At this age, they often choose to listen to the same story several times.
