Phonics and Literacy
We love to practise our phonics and literacy skills by singing along to our favourite Scratch Garden songs.
Learn about dividing words, making beats, and counting syllables with this super fun animation:
We use daily number songs to help us learn and recite our number bonds and facts. We love singing along and dancing to Jack Hartmann's counting songs!
Teach your children to count to 100 as they get some great exercise too. This cool kid-friendly song starts out with a message about staying healthy and fit and having fun counting to 100 together.
The following websites will help you to support your child's learning at home, using fun and interactive games and songs.
