We aim to listen to your child read every day, either by a member of staff or one of our generous volunteers. Your support in listening to your child read at home is very much appreciated. The new curriculum puts an emphasis on reading and re-reading books, encouraging your child to read the books again will help to develop fluency and comprehension.
Spellings are given out each Monday in preparation for a test the following week. We will check your child’s book to ensure that spelling practice has taken place on each week night. Your child will be rewarded with a team point for doing so.
Spelling is just a small element of your child’s learning but is very important so we ask that you continue to support your child and encourage them to understand the importance of practice.
Some children benefit by learning in different ways so practice can take place in the form of copying the words in pencil, sounding out the spellings, or by using magnetic or wooden letters to form the words. Please write in your child’s book if a different method has been used to copying. It is advisable to allow your child to copy the words out at least once before using a different method.
Foundation Stage children will receive spellings in the summer term.
The Phonics Screening test takes place in June every year for Year 1 children and we work hard to prepare them for this. There are lots of fun phonics websites. You will enjoy helping Geraldine the Giraffe on her quest to find the different sounds around the house!
