Reading book due in
Learning at Home
Spellings have been sent out.
Home Reading Books are changed every Friday.
Thank you for a fantastic set of Home Learning Challenges on Megastructures.
Bug Club will be set on Friday’s every fortnight- please let us know if you have any trouble accessing the website and we will do our best to solve any issues.
We will change Year 1's reading books every Friday. The purpose of the home reading book is to consolidate decoding skills and comprehension and develop fluency and expression. Please read with your child each week, asking them questions about the story, and sign the reading record so we know to give them a new book. Any additional comments in the reading records are welcomed. Bug Club will also be updated every fortnight.
In school the children will also have two guided reading sessions each week. These sessions will provide differentiated teaching of reading and will secure progress by providing opportunities for children to practice their learning. We currently use a breadth of reading schemes including Bug Club books, Oxford Reading Tree, Collins and Big Cat.
In the teaching of Phonics we follow the Letters and Sounds programme. Children are taught within differentiated groups for 20 minutes daily.
