Reading books.

Individual reading books will be changed twice a week, the children are responsible for changing their own reading book during the book change session, (days may vary). Can I ask that individual books sent home are read at least 3 times before books are changed. This encourages fluency and pace which is an integral part of the reading process, also please ask your child questions about what they have read. When your child is ready to change their book please remind them to do so during the next book change session. 



Chester Zoo in the Spring Term costing approx £22.

Addition trips to be arranged.



Reading - please record in your child's planner when you have read with your child.


Indivdiual homework will be linked to weekly phonics taught in class and will be sent weekly. Homework will be sent home on a Friday, to be returned the following Wednesday. 


I look forward to meeting you all and teaching each and every child. I am excited for a wonderful year in Class 1!


Mrs Ward.
