  • creating our own stories of the mixed up chameleon.

Helping your child at home

Your child should now be reading at home every day. Leaving a comment in your child's reading journal helps us to know what your child has completed at home.

Encourage your child to write at home. This can be shopping lists, sentences or even stories. encourage children to sound out their words and use the correct letter formation.

 

Every Friday, your child will get their home/school book which will contain details of what your child has learnt that week. We will also assign homework for your child to complete over the weekend.

 

Independent learning is a very important part of school life. Please can you encourage independence with your child by letting them get dressed by themselves, fastening buttons, pouring their own drinks, etc. 

 

Thank-you for your continued support
