Each week, your child will receive spellings to learn over the weekend for a spelling test the following week. We also ask that you hear your child read each day. Your child will receive their own reading bookmark, this needs to be signed and dated by an adult. Once your child’s bookmark is full up they will receive a small prize as well as sticker for their bookmark. During a long holiday, projects may also be sent home to complete.
Please ensure you hear your child read each day and record it in their reading diary. This is extremely important and supports their progress in school. Each child should bring their reading book and record into school every day.
Counting and recognising numbers:
Please help the children to develop their counting skills. It is important that the children begin to recite and recognise numbers from 0-100. Encouraging the children to identify numbers within the home and outdoor environment will support them greatly with their transition to Year 1.
