Reading books

Once all our assessments have been completed your child will be allocated a reading book in line with their ability. This may be a picture book at first until your child can blend. You can share this book together looking at the pictures and talking about the people and the events. Here are some questions you could ask;

 

What happened in the beginning, middle and end of the story?

What was your favourite part and why?

How might these characters be feeling? How do you know?

What might they be saying?

What might happen next?

You will be notified what day/s your child’s reading book will be changed. It is really important that you read with your child at least 3 times a week and record it in their reading record. You can also read other books together that you have a home.

 

Snacks

It is not necessary to bring any snacks into school as the children are provided with milk and fruit at playtime.

Once the children are settled in and all our baseline assessments are completed homework will be given out on a Friday and is to be handed in by the following Wednesday. Homework will alternate between learning logs and English/maths homework. English and maths will focus on the week's learning either using EducationCity (which you will receive log-ins for) or a simple worksheet. Learning logs will have a focus around our topics or any special events which may be happening within our community or nationally.
