Children should be reading at least three times a week and recording their reading in their reading records.
Please make sure that children bring in their reading folders every day. On Mondays, a member of staff will be checking to see that reading has been done at home. The children will have the opportunity to change their book daily, if required. The children should all have a VIPERS bookmark, which you can use whilst reading, to ask children questions. I will also set a book on Big Cat Collins website too when they are required. Please let me know when you have completed the books set online, so that I can add more on for the children.
When the children become more confident readers, we will be sending reading comprehension tasks home for homework.
Children will be set spellings weekly. We will be setting our spellings on a Tuesday and doing our spelling test the following Monday.
We have purchased a new spelling programme for the children, Spellingshed. We are in the process of setting this up. More information to follow very soon.
