Reading remains the single most important thing we do in Year 1, and to facilitate this, we have managed to secure access to two new platforms to access electronic reading books.
The simplest to access is Oxford Owl. All you need to do is click on the Oxford Owl link here, and then click on the My class login on the top right of the screen. In the top box type: class1sv. In the bottom box type: class1. To search for books, the best way is to choose search by levels and then choose Book Band. Choose books from the Book Band that your child was working on before the holidays.
I have also recorded a short youtube tutorial to help you further. Click here
In addition, we have also gained access to additional Collins Big Cat books, which are phonics based. If you wish to access these, then please email Year1@st-veronicas.lancs.sch.uk so you can be sent an activation link from Collins.
Finally, we are also trialing an eReading Record. This is designed to allow safe communication on a daily basis between school and home. A google link will have been sent to you via the school app, which will allow you fill in a reading record online which then can be accessed at school. This will allow us to update our reading records in school and assess when your child is ready to move onto the next Book Band. Each link is only accessibly by yourself, myself and Mrs Lord.
All children in Years 1 to Years 6 now have an account on this amazing maths app. As of Thursday 25th April these accounts now can also be used to use Doodle English, Doodle Spell and Doodle Tables. All are available from your preferred app store.
The PDF document below provides additional help in setting up and starting to use the apps.
Key Stage 1, Reception and Year 3 would like to say a big thank you to Mrs White for allowing us to buy more than 300 new phonic based reading books to supplement our existing home readers.
As part of this purchase, we have also received a year's free subscription to Collins Connect that allow children to access any one of over 250 e-texts to read either on their own or with an adult.
To log on to our pages simply click on the Collins Log on link below and then type the following into each box:
Date of Birth: 1(day), January (month)
First Letter of Surname: A
Year group: 1
Complete this and you can start reading at once.
When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.
