Learning Space 2 : Early, Levels 6-15

Here the stories become more complex as your child develops reading and writing skills. Your child is also learning about the sounds – letter blends and word families – to help with both reading and spelling. They will also explore more maths stories and maths concepts.

Literacy - 161 e-books and hundreds of activities spread across 10 levels
The early level features fiction and non-fiction e-books, letter blends and word families. Interactive activities focus on comprehension, writing, phonic and word knowledge.

Letter Blends - These 24 e-books will help children learn about common consonant blends and digraph. An understanding of these blends will support children as they attempt to decode words while reading and in their spelling and writing.

The e-books are read to the children and the text is highlighted as it is read. Children can move through the text at their own pace.

Each e-book is followed by a fun interactive activity allowing children to build words with the focus letter blend.

Word Families - These 32 e-books with activities help emergent and early readers to learn about common word families. Building awareness of the onsets and rimes that make up these words will support children as they apply this knowledge to their reading and writing.

The e-books introduce words from the focus word familiy within the context of a simple and enjoyable story.


The interactive activity following the e-book allows children to apply their knowledge through word building.

Maths
Mathematical language and concepts are introduced within the context of engaging, animated maths stories and then explored through interactive activities and games. The early level maths e-books continue to explore the language, concepts and skills from the content strands of Number and Algebra, Statistics and Probability, Measurement and Geometry.
