Younger children will have a reading book most nights. Please take time to share this with your child. Listen to them read, read to them or read with them. Remember to encourage their efforts. Make reading a fun time. You are establishing the habit of a lifetime and success is important if they are to become lifelong readers. Reading to your child is the best way to encourage children to become readers.
Reading books and poem books. Families are asked to listen to children read, encourage and praise them and then sign their notebook/diary. It is also a good idea to read the book to your child so they hear what good reading sounds like. Some reading will go home each night, Monday to Thursday. Books are to be returned in their book bags the next day.
Years 2-4 will have nightly reading and weekly homework sheets. Encourage them to plan the use of their time to do this in. A little praise goes a long way.
Weekly homework sheet. Spelling and basic facts. Families are asked to check and sign homework.
