Every afternoon after we have had our milk, we brush our teeth. We use this song to help us keep track of how long to brushy for. We also listen to the words and follow the instructions to make sure we do a good job! You could use it at home too!
Red reading records and reading books will be sent home each day and need to be brought into school every morning. Children will start by reading non-worded books, with a focus on looking at the pictures and telling the story in their own words. When the children are ready, they will move onto worded books. Reading books will be changed for a new one when the book has been read twice through. Each time you read with your child at home, please fill in the red reading record so that we can see they have read. When they have read at home ten times, they will get a prize from the treat box!
On a Friday, your child will bring home a set of words, taken from the Phonics scheme Letters and Sounds. There are 6 sets in total and at first the children will need to read the words before moving onto spelling them later in the year. The words will be stuck into the child’s spelling book and a set of flashcards for practising reading the words at home will also be provided. On a Friday, the children will be tested on their ability to read the words and they will then bring home a new set for the following week.
