Reading – Children take part in guided reading and reading activity session every day. We usually read together as a class as well as giving the children time to listen to others read, question and be questioned about what they have read and how the author has written in a certain way.

Home reading books are changed regularly. Reading is part of your child’s homework and they have a challenge to read at least five times a week. Please listen to your child read so that you can ask him/her comprehension questions and help them improve their understanding and fluency.  We would be grateful if you could then write a note in their planner to say they have read to you.

Homework – Homework is to read regularly at home, every night and to practice spellings every week. Sometimes, we will send home a Project linked to our Learning Challenge theme.

Spellings – Spellings will also be given out on a Thursday and tested the following Thursday.
