Phonics help for parents

 

Here is a useful video with how to pronounce the sounds in words if your child is struggling with sounding out words when they are reading and you are wanting to help them with sounding out the words:

Reading

 

We want children to have a whole diet of reading which can be fulfilled through:

Reading their school book, either the Oxford Reading Tree books or RWI phonics books online. These books are phonetically decodable for the children and also allows us to consistently track the progress of pupils throughout school.

We listen to children read every week and will move the child on book bands when we feel appropriate. We appreciate that the school reading books may not be suited to all children's interest which is why we encourage the whole diet of reading and not just a focus solely on the banded books. Please note there are different numbered levels within the coloured book band however these are all grouped together so sometimes your child may have a level 9, then 7 then 8 for example.

 

Their school library book and any books they read at home for pleasure for reading. This allows children to read or have read to them a book that is more adapted to their interests and exposes them to language that they may not be able to read themselves. The more genres of books and different text types they are exposed to the better.

 

Whole class reading book and other related books within English and Mission lessons in school. These provide all children the opportunity to develop their reading comprehension skills and make their writing purposeful when linked to a text.

 

Below are recommended reading lists for year 2 and year 3 that are good quality texts for their age group.

 

There is also the reading VIPERS poster which we use in class and reminds them of the reading skills they use whilst reading.

 

Finally there is a document containing reading questions for parents to ask and discuss whilst reading with their child to help further develop their reading skills at home.

 

If you discuss any of these questions with them, please include it in their yellow homework diary. If your child has read their school reading book, please write in their yellow homework diary when they have finished so that we can change their book for them and comment on any words they had to sound out, got wrong, corrected reading on etc. Please also keep a log of any other books they are reading at home in their Homework diary as we love to discuss these with children.

Homework Booklet

Please find below the Homework Booklet for Summer 1. The home learning activities are linked to the areas we are focusing on in class, and have been carefully chosen to develop different skills in relation to a variety of curriculum subjects. All homework will be shared on a Friday and displayed proudly in our classroom.

 

Special Mentions and CHAS

Every Friday we come together as a school to celebrate the children's hard work across our school; we do this by awarding one (on exception more than one), child per class Special Mention, and one child per class CHAS recognition. The child will be rewarded a badge for each and if given CHAS will be able to take home our CHAS dragon for the week and CHAS book to write about what adventures CHAS gets up to with you.

During our celebration assembly we also celebrate weekly birthdays and award the winning classes with the Eco and Attendance awards.
