Whilst we would like you to be able to complete as much of our home learning as you can, we also understand that this may not always be possible. This may be for a number of reasons. We appreciate that every family is going through a range of different experiences and challenges at the moment and we would not want you to be hard on yourselves if you do not feel able to complete learning on a particular day in a given week. All we ask is that you and your children try to do whatever you can, with the time and resources you have available. We will always be very grateful for anything you are able to do, but will not mind if some work is left incomplete.

When it comes to sight vocabulary, 'tricky words' or 'red words' as they are referred to in Read Write Inc. cannot be sounded out but must be recognised as the whole word. It is true that using flashcards is one of the best ways to teach tricky words, as learning to read these words is all about memory and recognition more than anything else. However, there are lots of fun games that can really bring the teaching of tricky words to life and make it exciting and more stimulating process.
Please see documents below for some ideas.
