How you can support your child at home: 

Reading at home

Children are expected to read to an adult at home for at least 10 minutes daily.

School Reading Books are sent home daily and will be changed when your child has read them twice, once for decoding and then the second time for comprehension.  Please indicate in the reading diary when you have read with your child so we know that they require a new book.

Please see https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/ for more electronic books.

Spelling

Please help your child to practise the letters sounds we have taught in school. Your child will start with Basics 2 and then progress onto basics 3. Please help your child to learn their tricky words at home. They need to be able to read and write these tricky words. You can start with a few words at the beginning and then add a new word in each time. It is progressive so the children will learn basics 2 words first and then move onto basics 3. Some phonics website with free games to have a look at are: https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/ and https://www.ictgames.com/

Topic

Mini-beasts

 

This half term we will be thinking about all things ‘minibeasts’.

You could talk about what the children understand by the term minibeasts, what type of animals does this include? What do they look like? If you go on a wellie walk, can you find any minibeasts, where do they like to live? You could go on a Minibeast hunt.

 

What facts do you know about minibeasts?

There are lots of great minibeast stories you could look at e.g.

  • What the ladybird heard,
  • Superworm,
  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar,
  • Mad about Minibeasts.

 

You could make a bug hotel or collect a caterpillar and look after it until it changes. You could build a bug or write a fact sheet on a bug or go on a bug hunt.
