Reading & Keywords
In Chestnut class, we would like you to read a few pages from the books we send home at least 4 times per week. Please don't feel like you need to comment in your child's reading record every time, unless you want to, just a date and your initials are fine. Please don't let these books replace lovely bedtime stories and other opportunities for you to read to your child, story language and vocabulary are both a vital part of reading. key words, please practice these frequently with your child and we will check them in school, rewarding your child with stickers. Use ideas from the Phonics and Reading Workshop in Term 1 to help.
Please see termly Curriculum Webs for ideas for Home Learning and please post anything you do with your child on their Tapestry account, we love to see lots!
From term 2 we send home phonics sheets that fit in with the phonics we are learning at school that week.
