Handy guide to the new online daily Phonics lessons that will be live streamed on YouTube
Daily phonics lessons will be live streamed on YouTube for you to access at home. They have lessons for Year 1 children that start at 10:30 am however, you do not have to watch them live if it doesn't fit in with your daily schedule. All sessions will be available after for you to watch in your own time. The daily phonics sessions are also offering Phase 2, 3 and 4 recap lessons for those children who find it difficult to retain previously taught phonics. This is a great way for you to assess which sounds your child is finding difficult and hopefully will help them learn sounds they may have forgotten. If you need any support with which sessions are going to benefit your child the most then please email me and I can give you some advice and point you in the right direction.
This video is a handy guide for parents as live streams begin on Monday 27th April.

Additionally, we are urging you to take this time to help your child gain important life skills that they wouldn't normally have the opportunity to do with you in the week, as well as some fun and creative activities, all of which you can find below. I would really enjoy seeing some photos of the activities you are doing at home and with permission I will post them on the website for Australia class to see (my email is firstname.lastname@example.org).
