Reading

Please could you support your child by listening to them read daily and recording their reading in their Reading Record. There is an expectation that you will read with your child at least 5 times a week. Every child who does this will receive a raffle ticket towards a prize draw at the end of each term. They will bring home a phonic decodable book which they should read at least 3 times before it is changed to build up fluency, expression and intonation (tone and expression whilst reading)

Handwriting

The children will be expected to write in the cursive font and will be continuing to learn how to join these letters.  Please continue to use Letter Join to practise the font.

Spellings

The children will also be given spellings to learn each week. The spellings will be sent home in their Spelling Books on a Friday and should be practised during the week and returned to school on Thursday. Your support with reading and spelling is very much appreciated.

Maths

Please continue to encourage your child to practise counting and writing their numbers 0-100. Also familiarise yourselves with the Key Instant Recall Facts (KIRFs) which can be found on the school website. Children are assessed termly in maths using a mixture of formal and informal ‘quizzes’. 

PE

PE will take place on a Monday afternoon with Mrs Hughes and on a Tuesday with Mrs O'Daly. Please see the PE letter for full information.

Water bottles

Please ensure your child has a named water bottle with them every day. These will be sent home daily to be cleaned and refilled with water, as per the school policy.
