Reading is one of the most important skills that we learn. We would really appreciate your support, by hearing your child read at home. We have a whole school reading reward scheme for home reading.
If your child reads with you please date and sign their organiser, so we can annotate this for the children to move along the reading track. Prizes are awarded at 15, 25 and 50. Each time 50 reads are achieved, they start back at the beginning in order to gain more prizes.
Each time a child reads 50 times at home, they will pick a brand new book of their choice and automatically be entered into a prize draw to win a trip to Waterstones to spend £50 in book vouchers each term.
Children will be given spellings to learn every week and will be tested on a Friday. There are spaces in the organiser for children to practice and parents are encouraged to practice with children writing and saying their spellings.
This year we have introduced spelling lessons into our daily timetable. We practise spelling patterns and ways of learning our spellings.
