Reading and Phonics in Reception via zoom Thursday 12th November 2020 @ 10am (25 mins)
Books are so important to your child's development and learning, the more you read the more they grow! Bed time stories are crucial from birth throughout the Primary years... You are never too old for a bedtime story!
Home Learning and Home Reading
1. Thank you for your help with your child's learning. Please bring your child's book bag with their green folder every Friday.
2. School library books can be changed every Friday morning (see below why it is SO important to read to your child).
3. Phonics Bags, later in the Autumn term your child be given a Phonic Bag, please read the letter that is in the bag this will help you support their learning. We will add more sounds to the bags as the weeks progress. Remember even if your child knows the names and sounds of each letter they should be able to use them to build and make words before getting new letters.
4. Reading Books, again later in the term your child will get a reading book, this will be changed in school with the teachers. We encourage you to draw a smiley face or make a comment in the small yellow comment book.
Please look after the school books and phonic bags as they take such a long time to prepare.
We expect your child to bring their book bag to school everyday. (During Covid times just Friday)
Thank you so much for your support in your child's learning
