Ten Town

      Why I love…Ten Town - Teachwire

In Early Years children are introduced to Ten Town, to support learning numbers to 10 and beyond.  

All children are given access to Ten Town at school, and have passwords to use at home too.  You will find these at the back of your diaries.  Please check your child's diary for any activities they might be asked to do, or have a look together yourselves.





Children in Cherry Class can now access Numbots Maths activities.  Please see the password at the back of your child's diary to log in.  If you are having trouble, please speak to a member of staff.





Please see the guide attached here for information on how to access the letter-join website, to support letter formation and handwriting.

Proud Clouds

Don't forget to send in things you are proud of.  We love to share them with each other!

If you don't have any at home please ask a member of staff or you can print some off here.

Phonics Play

Please click the link here to take you to the Phonics Play website, where you will find some free games to practice reading words containing sounds we have learnt.  

Your Home-School diaries should tell you which sounds to look at.

After you have selected one of the three games shown here, select Phase 2 or Phase 3 and filter the selection to show words using phonemes, digraphs and trigraphs we know or need to practice.  Children then have to decide if they are real or nonsense words and put them in the correct place.  


1-Minute Maths 

I would like to draw your attention the new FREE app from White Rose Maths called 1-Minute Maths.  You can download the app on ipad, Android and Kindle.  There is also a downloadable chart for parents to track which activities children do and when.  

It has lots of fun activities great for children in Early Years and uses lots of the resources and vocabulary our children will be familiar with.  It would be great to dip in and out of to consolidate knowledge and understanding of various number concepts.
