 Tuesday PM - Multi skills.



Children will continue to take home a reading book and reading log book each week. Please use the log book to record when they have read and a short message of how they got on. Please ensure children have these in their book bags each school day. We will also be sending home a book from our school library which will give you a chance to read to spend some time enjoying books with your child.

There is also a small yellow homework book sent home each Friday with a short activity linked to either their Maths/Phonics learning. This needs to be returned no later than Wednesday AM.

This term we will begin to send out spellings to practise. Please do not panic, this is just a great way for the children to develop their segmenting skills. Words will be matched to their current phonic knowledge using graphemes from phase 2/3.


Please try and read with your child 5 times a week, this can be for 10 minutes whilst they settle for bed.
