Useful Information

Reading books 

Reading book are changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. 

 

Library books

 

Library books are changed every Thursday. The library book is a book your child has chosen for you to enjoy together. Your child is not expected to read this on their own. Discuss the pictures, enjoy the story, predict what might happen next, use different voices for the characters, explore the facts in non-fiction books. The main thing is that you have fun and develop a love of books. 

PE

PE will take place every Monday and children will continue to learn skills in gymnastics and develop ball skills this term. PE kits can be left in school and will be sent home at the end of every half term to be washed and checked for correct sizing. Please ensure all clothing and pumps are clearly labelled with your child's name. Please remember that earrings must not be worn for PE and must be taken out on PE days.

A reading practice book

This book will be carefully matched to your child's current reading level. If your child is reading this with little help, please don't worry that this is to easy - your child needs to develop confidence and fluency in reading. 

 

A sharing book 

In order to encourage your child to be a lifelong reader, it is important that they learn to read for pleasure. The sharing book is a book they have chosen for you to enjoy together. Your child is not expected to read this on their own. Discuss the pictures, enjoy the story, predict what might happen next, use different voices for the characters, explore the facts in non-fiction books. The main thing is that you have fun. 

 

Below I have included some information about early reading and how you can help your child at home.
