Information for Parents – Helping your Children at Home

Practicing reading and writing set 1 sounds, high frequency words and ‘tricky words’ will help your child. Please encourage children to explore books. They love ‘Bedtime stories’.  We now have a new reading scheme ‘Bug Club’. Parents are asked to read with their child and to sign and date reading diaries. Library books are changed each Friday so please ensure that you child’s books are in school everyday or their books cannot be changed.
