Cross the River!
Sometimes, the most simple of activities support strong learning in early phonics and reading. ‘Cross the River’ is one such game that really inspires our children in Reception. It’s simple, the children read the word and see if the word can swim across the river without getting eaten. The sense of suspense, willingness and engagement is really high when this game comes out. Furthermore, the children play the game independently in Challenge Time and even begin to write their own words to cross the river. Win, Win!
