I am pleased to let you know that you are now able to sign up, for free, to a facility called Oxford Owl.

Oxford Owl is part of the Oxford Reading Tree company which is the main scheme we use for reading in our school. Signing up, will give the children access to a wide range of reading material at the same levels as the books we use in school. The books are graded by age group and use the same system of levels and book bands that home readers use. This means that the children have access to books that are appropriate to their reading ability.

To access this facility search online for Oxford Owl and join up.

The activities for English have been broken down in to three main areas.

  • SPAG- Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar.
  • Reading / Comprehension.
  • Writing

For each year group there is a weekly folder on the school website which contains all three of these elements for your child to work through.

We have provided Year 2 materials in case any of the activities are too challenging for the Year 3 and if your child is struggling then go to previous years material.

Many of the resources are further broken down using a star system. 1 star is the easiest version of the activity through to 3 stars which offers the most challenge. Again this will allow you to try and tailor the activity to your child’s ability.

Your child is able to use their exercise book to record their answers and written tasks.

Where possible, the vast majority of activities which have been set also have the answers included or attached for additional support.
