Each week children will be given a reading book or ditty sheet to take home. This text will match the level that they are working on in their phonics sessions. Please support your child’s reading development by listening to them read each day after school and sign their reading record.
Each Friday, we set homework tasks for the children. These tasks are designed to support the teaching and learning we have been focussing on that week in school. Please upload photos of your child completing their tasks to their Tapestry account so that we can celebrate their good work and share in the learning that has taken place at home.
Each week Reception pupils will visit the school library. They will be able to select a book of their choice to enjoy at home. Books need to be returned on your child’s class library day please.
Monday – Plum Class
Tuesday – Cherry Class
