Your child will be given opportunities to read individually during the week and will read to a member of staff during guided reading. Children will be responsible for changing and selecting their individual books when necessary. The children are also encouraged to take home a library book. It is expected that the children will read at home at least 5 times per week. Each reading ‘session’ should be for at least 10 minutes and will require an adult signature in the reading record for verification. Reading in Key Stage 2 is vital for your child’s progress; we will be introducing a new reading reward scheme this year.
Homework has been designed to support your child’s learning and will mainly consist of:
- Times tables
- Occasional extra tasks linked to our unit.
In addition to this the children will have a weekly spelling test on Fridays.
