    Every week your child will choose their own high interest reading book.  This is in addition to their reading scheme books.  Please can you read this book with your child and promote their love of stories.  Whilst reading try to ask your child questions linked to their understanding of the text, identify any familiar words they already know and share their likes and dislikes about the book.  Please ask your child to draw a favourite part from the story in their homework book.  Encourage your child to include a simple label, sentence or more.

    During the Spring and Summer term children will also receive a piece of maths homework which supports their weekly learning focus.  Please help your child by returning their homework book every Thursday.
