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 see attached list of high frequency words below. The children will be learning to read and write these words. We will start with the Phase 2 word bank and then progress onto Phase 3 and Phase 4.
