Learning at Home
Spellings will be sent out on a Monday and the children will complete a spelling test on Friday.
Home Reading Books are changed every Friday.
Home Learning Challenges about "Why Would a Dinosaur Not Make a Good Pet?" will be sent home shortly
Bug Club will be set on Friday- 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 Cedar class reading books every Friday. The purpose of the home reading book, and Bug Club online 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 is updated every week.
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.
Toast is for sale on Mondays and Fridays. In year 2, in order to promote independence the children are responsible for their own toast money. Toast is 10p per slice.
