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. Books are changed each Friday so please ensure that you child’s book is in school or their books cannot be changed.
Information to Parents:
Please ensure girls wear small studs instead of hooped earrings. Trainers should not be worn. Please ensure that PE kits are brought in for PE days. Please try and ensure your child has an opportunity to read with you at least three times a week!
‘Hook a book’ parent and child reading sessions will continue to be held every Friday morning 8.50- 9.05.
We look forward to seeing you!
