We hope you have all had a restful summer break. It has been lovely to get to know your children these last few days and to see their smiling faces. They have settled well into year 1 and we look forward to seeing all their achievements in the year ahead. Below are a few reminders for your information.
Please read 1 book a week on Bug Club.
If you have finished your allocation for the half term, please go to your library and reread the books. Rereading helps to build fluency and deepen your understanding of the text.
Dates for your Diary
Please check the School online calendar for all dates.
Homework - Homework will be allocated on our class page every Friday and is due back the following Wednesday (unless stated otherwise).
Reading Books - Pupils will receive a reading book on a Friday which is due back the following Monday.
Additional reading books are allocated on Bug Club.
It is important that pupils are using a range of reading skills: recognising key common words; using phonics to sound out; recognising similar rhyming words; using picture clues along with initial letter cues. Pupils should be able to talk about the story showing good understanding. Discuss the characters, setting and events with your child. Ask children to: link the story to events of their own life; predict what might happen next based on events that have already happened; link the title to events; and think of a different ending for the story, for example.
Visit https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/ and sign up for free to access lots of online Oxford Reading Tree books. This will be a great resource for extra books at home.
Phonics - It is important that you help your child to keep practising their recognition of phonemes. This should be done as isolated sounds, but also by recognising them within real and pseudo ('alien') words.
