LITERACY

We can read! 

Home Readers

When your child is blending independently, they will begin to take home a scheme reading book. We endeavour to read at least twice a week with your child and will send the book home for them to read to you. These books should be able to be read by your child independently. Please speak to your child's teacher if you have any questions or concerns about your child's reading. Alternatively, you may wish to write in your child's Reading Record Book.

 

Please do encourage your child to read to you at home and help them with their challenges in their home learning book.  We recommend 5 minutes a day and remember, little and often is best!

 

 

 

Red Words 

 

As your child is exposed to new words and vocabulary, they will develop a bank of tricky 'Red Words'.

These are words that are not phonetically easy to sound out. For example: Bob put on a hat.

 

Look for 'Red Words' in the storybooks you share together; the more your child sees and uses red words the easier they will be to read and write. 

 

FRED TALK GAMES

How should I say the sounds? - RWI. Pronunciation Guide

This video from Ruth Miskin shows you how to pronounce sounds in a pure way. This will help your child to hear each individual sound more easily which will give them the confidence when spelling and writing. For more information and videos, please visit http://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/parents/ or ask one of our lovely Reception teachers; they are more than happy to help!

 

Learning doesn’t just take place in the classroom, it can happen anywhere.

A child or young person’s everyday routine offers many opportunities and experiences to practise and apply their numeracy skills in real and meaningful ways. There are many ways that you can build learning activities into everyday routines to support your child’s numeracy skills. Below are some simple ideas to build numeracy skills into everyday activities:

Barnaby Bear could be coming home with you!

Each week, Barnaby will choose a child to go home with for the weekend. Barnaby loves to go on adventures. If you go to the park or beach, take Barnaby with you - he likes to explore. Barnaby Bear has his very own scrapbook so that you and your child can write about your awesome adventures together. It would be great if you could take some photos also or even draw some pictures. We can't wait to hear all about your time with Barnaby Bear!

Captain Hook visits Bailey Class!

One day while Bailey Class were busy learning, Captain Hook (the mischievous pirate) barged into the classroom! He stole a sweet, poked out his tongue and then ran away with Mrs Jensen's Ipad! After we called 999 and reported the robbery to the police, we made wanted posters and warned others about the naughty pirate.
