Home Learning opportunities 


Your child will be given a Read Write Inc, book bag book to read. This book will be matched to your child's phonic ability and will be changed weekly on their book change day.

They will also receive one Read Write Inc book that is the story that they have been reading as part of their Read Write Inc lessons. This will be giving once their group has finished reading it in class.

Our new approach to reading is to build the children's fluency. 

To do this, the children will read each book three times. 

The first time allows them for 'Fred talking' the words where they can sound out the word aloud and then blend it together.

The second read, we encourage the children to sound the words out in their head (Fred in their head). 

The third read is for fluency where children should now be able to read it without the need to sound out everything. 


Please talk to your child's class teacher should you need further advice or guidance. 



Your child will soon receive weekly spellings. 


Numbots online Maths 

Your child will soon receive details of this website and a login. It is a great way of practising their number facts. 



Please go to the Curriculum Overview tab for documents detailing the topics, themes and books we will be covering this year.
