We expect children to be reading at least four times each week and for this to be recorded in their organisers. The key to learning and progression at this age is little, often and repeated to embed and consolidate learning. Even five minutes can make a huge difference to your child's reading development. Reading can involve your child reading their school reading book and phonic book, using their sound cards to make words to blend as well as sharing their favourite bedtime story. Stories are incredibly valuable to children, building up an understanding of their world and are a key part in developing language and vocabulary.
We provide an optional homework menu each half-term as well as a knowledge organiser for learning taking place within the classroom. It is entirely up to you at home how much is covered. We aim to make these activities fun and straight-forward to fit in with busy lives whilst at the same time encouraging independent skills and quality family time.
