As part of Safer Internet Day on the 9th of February 2021, WISE KIDS is hosting 2 online interactive workshops which will also feature guest panellists. These workshops will explore how we assess online content and interactions, and the knowledge, digital literacy and resilience we need so we don’t get tricked online.
This workshop will be facilitated by Dr Sangeet Bhullar from WISE KIDS and will also feature guest panellist Dr Huw Davies (Lecturer in Digital Education at Edinburgh university), Mrs Josephine Farag from Cardiff High School, Mrs Julia Willis and Miss Ceri John from Cross Ash Primary, Mrs Becki Bawler from Risca Comprehensive School, Ms Sian Northey from the Parent Network, Mr Dayle Luce from Cardiff Youth Service and Ms Parven Kaur from Kids n Clicks.
You may need to create an account, but this is all free. Select the ‘e-books’ tab, then ‘oxford owl e-book library’. Take a look at the stage your child is currently reading by looking on the back of the book. Select the same stage from the options available.
This website has a lovely selection of activities and resources available, so take a look around and enjoy exploring.
Writing your child’s name using a variety of resources/equipment – chalk/pens and paper/shaving foam/playdough/iPads/paint/water and paintbrushes outside/sand/pasta etc.
Support and encourage your child with their ‘pincer grip’ of holding the pencil/pen when writing/forming the letters.
Letters and Sounds – please use the following website to find letter and sounds activities, resources and sets of ‘sounds’ and ‘words’ you can use at home. We are currently working at ‘Phase 2 Sounds’ but please feel free to work on ‘Phase 1’ too.
Jolly Phonics – listen to the following link on youtube to sing along to the letter sounds. They are in a different order to the ‘Letters and Sounds’ sounds but please do not worry about this, as the encouragement to sing and recognise the letters sounds is the important aspect.
‘I spy letters’ game – can you find objects around the house that begin with different letters? e.g. s = smelly sock, a = apple, t = torch ect.
Handwriting Practise – We are using the cursive handwriting in school – find formation sheets on Twinkl or look at the pack sent out to you at the end of Summer Term.
Number formation practise
Count objects around the house
Object hunt – how many apples can you find?
Addition – can you add objects together to find out how many altogether?
