Home learning tasks will be added to our class page by Monday of each week and these will run alongside learning in school. This will enable you to continue to support your child’s learning in a meaningful way and enables us to work together effectively. It is important that children complete the home learning each week and get into the routine of working from home. Home learning partnerships with school are crucial in supporting your child’s success and we very much look forward to working alongside you.
Reading - Once your child brings home a reading book, please make a special time to hear your child read to you (before they get too tired in the evening). Ideally listen to your child read every day for five to ten minutes. Please remember it is as important for your child to talk about what is happening in the story and answer questions about what they have read as it is them being able to read the words. So please take time to ask appropriate simple questions about the story and characters.
Bug Precision Words - Your child will be bringing home high frequency words. In order to help your child to become a fluent reader they should practice reading the words we send home daily as this will increase the recognition of these words which in turn will help them read more fluently. Taking the time to build their accuracy with sight reading these words will have a huge positive impact on their ability to read successfully and confidently.
Letter Formation - Please help your child practise their letter formation as we teach new sounds to your child. This could be done with crayons, chalk, pens, in glitter, rice, ketchup, in the bath bubbles, mud - anywhere your child can make marks and play - get creative and share on Tapestry.
