Reading Books:

Please ensure your child’s reading packet is in school every day.

Please read regularly with your child and ensure that their reading diary is signed.

When reading with your child, check that they understand the words and story.

How you can help your child:

Ensuring they get a good nights sleep.

Reading every day – find a quiet place, cuddle up, talk about the pictures and enjoy the book.

Encourage them to be as independent as possible by getting themselves dressed, feeding themselves, going to the toilet themselves, washing their hands and tidying up their toys when they have finished.

Taking your child to the library and share your love of reading.

Writing: Practice forming the letters of the alphabet and writing words and sentences about their activities over the weekend or their reading books.

PLAYING – outdoors, creative art, baking, imaginary play.
