Remember homework will be sent home every FRIDAY and will need to be returned by the following Thursday.
Please try to encourage independence and don't forget to write in pencil.
Year One spellings are sent home every Friday. The children are tested on Thursdays.
Check on the start on the following week's spelling sticker for the spelling results.
Remember to talk to your child about the spelling pattern for the week when you practise.
The more reading that your child does, the better their phonics and writing will be!
We have a new scheme of reading books so please refer to the reading schedule to best support your child.
Reading does not always have to be their reading book every night. Gere are some ideas for reading activities that you could do with your child...
- Reading the food packets in a supermarket.
- Looking for letters and signs when you are travelling in the car or bus.
- Finding sounds to read at the park or at the swimming pool.
- Making and reading sounds with paint, water, stones or other craft materials.
