Reading

Your child’s reading books will be changed once a week following on from their Guided Reading session in school. The day on which their book will be changed will depend on which reading group they are in.

Your child will take home 2 books, 1 fiction and 1 non-fiction to read together with an adult.  Please read both books with your child and remember that ‘little and often’ is a good approach to reading. If your child finishes reading the books we would ask you to read through them again together, talk about the book and ask them questions about the text they have read in more depth to encourage their comprehension skills.

It is really important that you read with and listen to your child read every day.  Research shows that children who read at home to an adult on a daily basis make more progress in school. We believe that quality reading is better than quantity and that a good 10 minutes of reading with your child is more effective than trying to make them read for 30 minutes after a long day at school!

Phonics 

We like to use ‘Phonics Play’ in school, the ‘Free PhonicsPlay’ has lots of fun games which encourage sounding out and blending.

Mr Thorne’s Phonics videos are great too to learn and practise your sounds: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7sW4j8p7k9D_qRRMUsGqyw

 

PE Kit 

Please ensure that your child’s PE kit is FULLY LABELLED with their FULL NAME, in a bag labelled with their FULL NAME and CLASS. Earrings should be removed or covered with surgical tape for all PE lessons.
