Reading

As a school, we expect all children to read their school reading book at home on a daily basis.  Please remember to record this in their reading record so that the children can earn stickers on their reading bookmark and dojos!  We also encourage you to share your love of reading with the children too through bedtime stories, library visits and listening to audiobooks in the car and at home!

In school, we share our love of reading through making time to share stories on a daily basis sharing books from our homes and school.  We vote for our favourite book each day.

Also, on a Friday, all children in Reception will bring home a ‘Snuggle up Sack’ with a reading book.  This is another opportunity to share a love of reading with your child.  Find some time and a cosy corner to read to your child and enjoy the treats inside the ‘Snuggle up Sack’!  It would be lovely if you could include a drawing / comment about your book in the notebook which is included in the sack.  Please return these books to school by Wednesday.

 

Spellings

During the summer term, weekly spellings are set.  These are linked to the letters and sounds taught during phonics that week.  Spellings will be sent home on a Friday in the children’s learning logs and are tested the following Friday.  Please make time each day to practice them.  This should take no longer than 5 minutes each day.
