Your child will be able to reach the star reader target set within the classroom. 

If your child is finding a story easy, please ask them lots of comprehension questions to ensure they understand the book they are reading. Questions can include:

  • Who are the characters?
  • What role does ______ have in the story?
  • Where is the story set?

PHONICS

In class, your child is being taught Phase 5 Phonics. They will take a Phonics Screening Check in June 2018. The check consists of 40 real and pseudo (alien) words and it is to test your child's blending skills. Please practice reading the sound mats below as much as possible. Whilst your child is reading their home school reading book, you can help them to break down the sounds and blend the word together to read.

Book Bags & Uniform:

Please make sure your child brings a book bag to school. It will help them to carry their homework and reading books. Children will be told to put any important letters or notices inside their book bags so please make sure you check them regularly.

 

Please ensure that your child's uniform is clearly labelled to avoid loss of belongings. We encourage children to put jumpers in their trays to keep them safe. When the weather is bad, make sure your child has a waterproof coat with a hood and suitable footwear.
