Below are some websites that you may find useful when practising reading and writing at home.

We have been reading 'Whatever Next' by Jill Murphy and 'Here Come The Aliens!' by Colin McNaughton. Inspired by these books we have drawn rockets on the playground, acted out the stories, written names for our own aliens and designed rockets. We have enjoyed learning about space too! Well done Reception for working hard!
