Happy New Year to you all.
What an interesting start to the year we have had. The children have learnt just how important water is and how much we take our access to it for granted. Thankfully we are now fully operational and everyone is looking forward to the rest of the term.
We have noticed that many children are not reading enough at home. This will now become a major part of homework. We would urge you to hear your child read or read to them as often as possible, whatever their age. Remember reading is not just about decoding the words it is also understanding what is being read and making inferences. For example: What do you think will happen next? Why did the author use that word?
We will over the coming months help you in supporting your child at home by providing strategies and ideas.
Please make sure that at all times reading should be a positive experience for you and your child. Setting a specific time and special place to share a book is important.
