Useful Information

To those who need new ones issuing, reading books will be sent home on a Monday. Please note that reading books should only be returned to school on a Friday, please. Please help your child to be a successful reader by practising reading on a daily basis when possible (little but often is good). We also complete guided reading in school which is separate to home/ school reading books; therefore, progress through the reading scheme will be dependent mostly on how much they read out of school, as well as their phonic skills, decoding and comprehension.  All children have a reading chart to encourage reading at home – please remember to issue a sticker each time they read at home and remember that there are prizes for every reading chart completed throughout the year. If your child has completed a chart, please post a photograph on Tapestry or send it into school.

Read, Write Inc. spelling and phonics books are also sent home and the rules/sounds learned will be noted on Tapestry.

As part of our school policy, children are encouraged to ‘Enjoy Learning Together at Home’ and learning opportunity grids can be found at the front of each ELTaH orange coloured book (these will be updated termly on the website for you to be able to download or print yourselves). These include a list of suggested ways that you may choose to support your child at home.

Thank you so much for your continued support. Please do not hesitate to ask if there is anything you are unsure about.

Mrs Gardiner
