Otter Class Home Learning
The most important thing for you to do with your child at home is to read every day. Find a time when everyone is relaxed so you can enjoy some special time together. Your child can enjoy reading their reading book to you, practising their new decoding, prosody (reading with expression) and comprehension skills. Then share a book together, one which your child has chosen, and enjoy spotting graphemes (written sounds) that they know, adding lots of expression and chatting about what is happening and why.
Every Friday a new sheet will be stuck into your child's Home Learning book. This will tell you what we have been learning in phonics, give you some spellings that your child can practice and an example of a maths question or activity that you can do so you know what we have been covering in school.
Each term a topic based 'Home Learning Grid' will be stuck into their books. Each week choose an activity, highlighting or ticking the box to say you've done it. This work can be recorded in the Home Learning book.
If you have done all the activities, you could choose to do one again in a different way, or to do an activity of your own connected to the topic. If you have a particularly busy weekend , or your child is very tired, please do not worry, we would rather they had fun / a good rest so they are ready for the week ahead.
Please hand all books in on a Thursday : Homework books; Reading records with Reading books tucked inside.
The Home Learning Grid is also added to the website.
Thank you for your continued support. The homework they did last term was wonderful . It is always a pleasure to look at what they have done each week.
