Reading

Please listen to your child read as often as possible. Studies show that children make more progress when they complete regular reading at school and at home, and we hope you will take every opportunity to read and discuss with your child a range of texts. Please write notes, comments and questions in their homework diaries. We will change books on a Monday and Thursday.  Additionally, they can log on to Bug Club and read one of the books on there and complete a comprehension task.

 

Spellings and Grammar

Spellings and Grammar will be given on a Monday and tested on a Friday and should be practised daily (10minutes each). Your child will bring home their spelling book and they will also be put on Seesaw each week.

 

Tables should be practised daily (15 minutes each) on TT Rockstars.

 

Thank you for your support.
