Each Thursday your child will bring home their new reading books and phonic homework sheet to complete in pencil. The shared reading books give the children an opportunity to practise their reading skills with support from an adult as necessary. It is also provides a chance to talk about what they have read with an adult. The books can be read multiple times during the week giving the children the chance to recognise unfamiliar words and build up their confidence when reading independently.
We ask that every child aims to read at home at least 3 times a week for around ten minutes each time.
The children are now quite familiar with the phonic sheets, so as an extra activity see if they can make a sentence using one or two words from the list on the sheet. We are continuing to practise writing sentences in class using the conjunction ‘and’ or 'because'. Please draw lines on the paper so they can practise writing on the line.
We will also be sending home a weekly spellings list for your child to start learning in January. These spellings will be tested in school every week. We will update this page with more information once the spellings have been sent out.
Thank you for your continuing support,
Miss Ryde and Miss Green
Completed homework will be collected the following Thursday.
