Things to remember:

Please note: It is extremely important that you help your child practise their number facts and spellings at home so they feel prepared for their weekly tests.
- Reading records should be signed at least 3 times each week.
- Your child should bring their reading bag into school every day, with their reading books and reading records inside.
- PE kits should be brought in at the start of every half term. Check the Uniform Policy for more information.
- Please remember to check your child's bag each evening for any letters, information or homework.
Please open up the documents below if you wish to see the long term overview for the current academic year and / or a more detailed overview for this half term.
Below are links to useful, interactive games your child can play whilst at home on their tablet, iPad or computer device.
Phonics and English:
Reading is such an important life skill to acquire; letters and words are all around us! Reading allows us to be transported from our world to another. Between the pages of a book, we become immersed in the lives of characters and learn about cultures and ways of life entirely different from our own. We learn new words and phrases, experience a range of emotions and acquire skills and knowledge that sets us up for life.
Benefits of your child reading:
- By reading to your child, you provide them with a deep understanding about their world and aid them with knowledge about lifestyles different to theirs.
- Children learn to develop empathy as they experience the lives of characters and identify how they are feeling. Children then are more likely to discuss their own emotions and those of others in real life situations, which in turn, develops their social skills.
- Improves well-being.
These are just some of the benefits of reading with and to your child. Please read the Pearson article for more information on just how important reading is.
We love to watch Newsround and discuss what is happening in the world. Newsround airs twice daily and is a great opportunity to educate your child on important issues in our world.
