Please look online for new stories to look at with your child. Try YouTube or follow the link:
Reading Books - Your child will bring home a reading book in reception. Please try to read with your child every night. They will keep their reading books for approximately 1 week so be prepared to read the same book several times. The children read at school at least once a week so please keep your child's reading book and reading record in their book bag.
High Frequency / Tricky Words - Your child will bring home a list of words that they need to learn to recognise. These are the words that appear lots in the Oxford Tree Reading books or words that cannot be spelt phonetically. Please practice memorising these words with your child.
Library - The children go to the infant library every Thursday with Mrs Potts, they independently choose a book to borrow, these are for enjoyment that you can read to your child at home or that they may want to look at independently. Please put the library books in your child's book bag every Thursday so your child can change it. Please note - You will incur a fee if you fail to return books or return them damaged.
PE - PE is done with Mr Cowling on a Friday morning and during the week with Miss Rigby. All children need a PE kit - black pants/shorts, black pumps, white tee shirt at school. The children keep these on their pegs and they will bring them home in the holidays to be washed.
The children learn phonics to learn to read and write. Each week we learn three new sounds. The new sounds we have been learning this week are - 'e' and 'l'
Please practice with your child, finding the initial sounds in words, especially with the new sounds they have been learning!
Please use this link to help you practice sound pronunciation correctly at home with your child:
Here is a picture to show you the order in which we will be learning single sounds.
