Our school value this term is...
Please read with your child for a short time five times each week and sign and date the reading diary. It is so important that we are able to keep track of the amount of reading your child is doing and if the book isn't signed we don't know if they have read or not or if the reading book needs to be changed. There will be an acknowledgement when children read regularly and frequently and this will be celebrated in class. Remember that all kinds of reading counts, for example, reading a couple of pages of a favourite book at bedtime or reading from a children's website such as CBBC and remember the different genres including poems, encyclopedia, comics and so on, any kind of reading counts and can be recorded in the reading diary. A class reading challenge will be on our class Learning page soon and the activities on it will also count towards the five times weekly reading when they are recorded in the reading diary.
Your child's reading book and diary need to be in school everyday and should be kept in their bookbag in their drawer so it is available should we wish to read with them individually. Reading diaries will be checked on Friday mornings and books changed if they have been completed. If your child needs a new book before Friday, please let us know by writing a message in the reading diary and asking your child to put it in the pink box in the conservatory.
In class your child will read to an adult each week as part of a guided reading group. In class, we share books and poems at least twice each day and this is something that we all enjoy.
Spellings will be given on a Friday and there will be a low stakes check in on Thursdays. Spellings for the whole term will be available on our Learning page. There will be daily phonics/spelling lessons in class to learn new spelling patterns and rules.
It is so important for children to be fluent with number facts, including number bonds and times tables facts. There are many ways to practise number facts and information of how and what to practise can be found on our Learning page.
Just2easy is a safe place online where your children can access a suite of ICT apps. Each child has their own login details and can save any learning they do into their own virtual folder. If you have any problems logging in please email me and I will send you the information you need.
Oxford Owl is a great resource with lots of free ebooks. We have a class login which I can let you have but it is easy to create your own free account if you'd like to start reading straight away.
