Reading – Please listen to your child read every day and fill in their reading tree for checking every Monday. Please ensure they have their reading wallet in school everyday. Some children will have two shorter books but some children will only have one longer book.
Red, Green, Purple, Pink and Orange books
Day 1: practice the Story Green Words and the Red Words. Day 2: Read the book for the first time. Day 3: Read the book with expression and fluency (they will need you to show them how you would read the book with expression so they have a model to copy) Day 4, 5 and 6 repeat the pattern but with the second/ new book.

Day 1: practice the Story Green Words and the Red Words. Day 2: Read the first half of the book Day 3: Read the second half of the book Day 4: Read all of the book with expression and fluency (they will need you to show them how you would read the book with expression so they have a model to copy) Day 5: Read the book again improving and developing the expression and fluency (they will need lots of praise and encouragement) Day 6: Read the book and answer the comprehension questions which are on the last page.
Spelling – Practise their spellings everyday so they are ready for their spelling test on Friday morning. (This will now start after half term once the children have settled into their new routines)
Maths – Please encourage your child to access Doodlemaths 3 times a week for 10 minutes. This regular practice will make a huge difference. If your child did not have a password and log in letter given to them on Friday 10th September, please let me know and I will issue another one.
If your child would like extra home learning, they might like to play Stick and Split using the following website.
