Homework is set on a Friday and due back in the following Wednesday.
Your child will have a blue homework book and will initially be sent the 5 new sounds they have learned that week to practise at home.
In addition - please try and listen to your child read for 10 minutes each evening or as much as you can. It really does help them to improve.
Try asking your child to tell you about the story they have read, including:
- Who the characters are?
- What sort of personality does each character have?
- What was the story about?
- Why did certain characters act or behave in a particular way?
It is important to reflect on what has been read as well as just reading the words.
Try and read the book more than once and record in your child's reading record when they have read to you.
