Useful Information

Reading: In Saturn class, we enjoy a positive reading environment in which books are enjoyed and shared by all. Pupils are given daily opportunities to listen to stories and read independently with an adult.  Every child takes part in Read Write Inc Guided Reading and Whole Class Guided Reading sessions. Please encourage your child to read at home daily with an adult. Having the opportunity to reread books helps the children develop their fluency and to read with a storyteller’s voice.  All children have a Home Reading Book pack and will be provided with two reading books to enjoy at home each week.  These books are closely matched the Phonics level each child is working at.  Reading books are swapped every Monday and returned to school on Thursdays so that they have time to be quarantined over the weekend.  You can access further reading eBooks at home through the Oxford Owl eBook Library.  Please ask Miss Cromack if you would like the Class Login.

Phonics:  In Saturn Class we follow Read Write Inc to teach Phonics.  In Year 1, the children will recap the Set 2 sounds and be introduced to Set 3.  In Year 2, the children will recap Set 3 sounds before moving on to the Year 2 spelling programme.  For further information on how to support your child with Read Write Inc Phonics at home, please take a look at:  https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/reading-schemes-oxford-levels/read-write-inc-phonics-guide/

In Saturn Class, we enjoy playing games to practise our Phonics learning.  We have access to Phonics Play which has lots of fun interactive games and activities that you can enjoy at home.  Please ask Miss Cromack if you would like the Class Login.

PE:  For this term, PE will be on a Tuesday and Friday afternoon and will take place on the field or playground.  Please send your child to school in their PE kit on these days.  In cold weather, please make sure their PE kit includes a warm outdoor top and waterproof.
