The children take home a piece of maths homework on a Wednesday. We would like it to be back in school the following Wednesday. Spellings will be sent home on a Monday with a spelling test on a Friday.
We would also like the children to read at home as often as they can.
Children who read three times or more at home in the week, will be able to move their car further along our reading race track. The top three children who have read the most in the autumn term, receive a 'Book Worm' certificate. Please make sure you tick / sign the journal each time they read so we can award them their next place in the race.
www.teachyourmonstertoread.co.uk is a fun way to practise your child's reading.
We are following the Phase 5 Letters and Sounds programme. We use phonics play a lot - here is the website www.phonicsplay.co.uk

As you may be aware, children will undertake a Phonics Screening the Summer Term. You will receive further information about this in the Spring Term. Please click on the link below for further information. https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/phonics-screening-check-administration
Children will need to practise their phonics as much as possible at home. Please encourage children to sound out and word e.g. s n ake and blend it together to read it - snake. The phonics screening test uses alien words (made up words e.g. blorg) as this really tests their phonic knowledge and doesn't allow them to guess.
Www.forestphonics.co.uk is a fun way to practise the sounds we have been learning in class.
www.ictgames.co.uk has lots of fun games and activities that your child could access at home.
Children will undertake the Phonic Screening Test in June 2019.
