Your child should bring their reading book daily as there will often be times for independent reading. Please try to read with your child as often as possible and once they have completed their book it can be changed. Each child has been allocated books online with Bug club, if you need any help accessing the site please let us know.
Bug club books to be returned once they are read at home and they will be changed by the pupils through the week and we encourage parents and pupils to record in the red home link books. There are also book reviews in the back and times table pages where you and child can work on times table targets. Pupils will develop their reading skills and be listened to in class through individual, shared and guided reading sessions.
ll pupils will have HWB log ins that we will send home and everyone will have log ins for active learn to access the Bug club books online. Again we encourage pupils and parents to use Bug Club online at home to develop reading and comprehension skills. We can monitor pupils’ progress through the questions asked online then assign books of appropriate level to each child.
The Class blog will be updated regularly with homework, information and photos of our learning.
Juniors use Class Dojo to reward points in class but not as a tool to communicate with parents. We will communicate through Twitter, Texts and the Class Blog. If you have any questions please see us before or after school when convenient.
Headphones – pupils are welcome to bring into school inexpensive headphones should they wish to do so as it will allow them to use the iPads with sound. This is not compulsory.
