Here is Mrs Scott and Mrs Ward's virtual library! You can click on any title you choose and listen to the book being read to you. There are lots of favourites in there so sit back and enjoy the story!
Help at Home
The best way to help your child succeed at school is to enjoy sharing a book with them. This can be a favourite bedtime story, a magazine from the shop or a non-fiction book based on their interests- any type of reading is great!
You might have noticed your child singing songs or doing some funny actions when telling you all about their reading and writing! That's because we use some Jolly Phonics songs, a fun way of learning letters.
Here are a few links to help you understand what it's all about.
All About Jolly Phonics
Dinosaurs Eggs choose a sound to practice and have a go at finding the right egg
Phonics play comics has some decodable comics to read for something a bit different. Look at phase 2 or 3
Fun Maths Games
We have been enjoying lots of clever Maths games.
Some of these can be played on a tablet. Some need a laptop or PC.
Maths Train (we have been trying the additions up to 10 and 20)
Chinese Dragon (lots of fun sorting and ordering numbers)
Shape Patterns (having a go at continuing the patterns)
Underwater Counting (working on our careful counting)

Songs We Like!
We are a very musical class and love learning new songs.
Counting By 2s (we learnt a clever way to count large amounts!)
Counting by 10s (and even larger ones!)
3D Shapes (that I know) (such a catchy song to help us learn some 3D shapes)
Baby Shark (for when we want a bit of silly fun!)
You Are The Best (because St John's is the BEST! I wonder if Mums, Dads, Grandparents and other family members can learn the dance?)
Joe Wicks The Body Coach, does an 8-minute workout aimed at children – it might burn some energy off!
Cosmic Kids Lots of different stretching, yoga and mindfulness adventures here.
Please remember to always supervise children when they are using the Internet. Although we have checked these links when adding them to our Class 1 page, things can change quickly. Please let Class 1 staff know if you spot anything inappropriate whilst playing these games.
