Friday 11th September 2020
At the moment, we have sent your child home with 5 supplementary books to get them to quickly return to the great habit of regular reading. These books will have been changed on Friday. Please continue to record their daily reading sessions in their reading diary from last year. We will be returning to levelled reading books and set reading sessions within the classroom after next week. We will be sending out further information soon.
Don’t forget the children can use Bug Club as well. They can reread any of the books on there too.
Your child now has a new spelling book. Spellings will be handed out on a Friday and the children are tested on a Thursday in the back of their spelling book. Please encourage your child by supporting them in learning and writing the spellings during the week. Little and often is best. The first five spellings are the year 1 common exception words which the children will benefit from revising. Some children will also have an additional five spellings to learn that follow the rules that we are currently studying in our grammar lessons.
Homework will be handed out on a Friday in a plastic wallet which should be returned the following Thursday. Please encourage your child to complete the work as independently as possible but, support them where necessary. The work should be completed using a pencil please.
