A simple named bag with a draw string is a convenient way of carrying and storing PE clothing.
For safety reasons earrings must be removed or taped over during PE. Hair must be tied up for PE.
Your child will have three separate reading books to take home each week.
1) Core Story Book – Oxford Owl eBook (online)
After your child has finished reading a story book in class, their reading teacher will issue the same book for your child to read via our online eBook service. These will be issued every 3/4 days. You will find your child’s log in to Oxford Owl in their reading diary. After reading the story, there will be a quiz to complete to support comprehension. Your child will have worked hard to learn to read this book in school so please celebrate their success in reading it to you fluently! Please add this to the reading diary and write a comment. An adult may need to read the questions.
2) Book Bag Book
This book will be changed every Friday and can be found in your child’s book bag. Our Book Bag Books build upon the ideas of the stories your child has read in school. Explanations about how to use the books can be found in the cover. Please read this guidance carefully and rehearse the sounds and words with your child before reading the story. This will aid fluency development. Your child may need some support in reading this book but it will contain sounds they are familiar with and therefore should be read to you independently. Please support your child to read this book to you at least twice over the course of a week and write this in your child’s reading diary, dating 1st and 2nd read with a comment to staff if appropriate. You should notice an improvement with each read.
e.g Scruffy Ted gets lost – 1st read - **/**/** Read all of the red words.
2nd read - **/**/** Used a great story teller voice.
3) A reading for pleasure book
This book is designed to promote a love of reading for your child. They choose this book independently based on their current interests. We have a wide range of both fiction and non fiction that the children can select from.
Your child is not expected to be able to read this book independently as it may contain sounds that they are not familiar with. The purpose of this book is for your child to share this with an adult and to discuss the text and pictures with interest. They can read this book once at home before bringing it back into school to be changed.
