“Hand in hand with God,we live love and learn together.”
“By God’s grace, we learn to loveand love to learn.”
Individual reading will occur throughout the week, and each child in Reception will have their books changed two or three times. Please ensure that their reading books are placed into the basket when it is their reading day. The basket will have a laminated sign with children's names on who are reading that day.- Initially staff will do this as parents will not be entering classrooms until further notice.
Big Cat Collins
Thanks to the help of 'Friends of Antrobus PTA' we have recently been able to buy new phonetic reading books in school from Big Cat Collins. Alongside the physical books that children will be sent home with each child in Class 1 will be able to access reading books online during school, holidays, weekends and evenings. A letter explaining how to log in will be sent home and in your child's reading record there is a note stating what colour band your child can select to read up to.
It is vital that children read at home daily, even if it is only for 5-10 minutes. We do not have any other formal weekly homework in class 1, as we emphasise the importance of reading at a young age. This helps to develop not only reading but writing and imaginative skills too. When you have read with your child at home, please date and sign the reading journal so that staff at school know. Thank you.
In Class 1 we will complete guided reading sessions every afternoon.
We will adopt a carousel style approach with 3 work stations;
1. Guided reading with Miss Perry.
2. Hand writing practise.
3. Fine motor activity.
