Your child will be given a reading book, a phonics reading book and a reading diary. They will need to keep these in their book bags to bring into school every day. Please listen to your child read at LEAST three times a week and ask them questions about the text to check their understanding. If the book has been read, and you have made a note in the reading record, a new book will be given if the school thinks they are ready as well. It is also very important that you read stories to your child to develop their vocabulary and imagination.
In Year 1 we have daily guided reading lessons, even if your child has not read their home reading books with us they have read with an adult which is marked in their books. Therefore, we aim to read their home reading books and change them if necessary on a Friday. It is even more important for you to listen to your child read their home reading book now they read other texts during the school day. Thank you for your support.
Homework will begin on Monday 6th September and will be due the following Monday weekly. Homework for the entire half term will be given all at once so do not worry if it looks like a lot, its just one maths and one phonics a week!
Homework is provided online in the links below.
Please feel welcome to come and talk to your class teacher after school to arrange a meeting if you have any questions or queries.
This half term PE will be on a Monday and Friday.
