Reading Books

The children will be visiting the school library each week where they will be given the opportunity to change their book, if needed.  These books can be taken home, and it would be great if your child could read with an adult at least 3 times a week. The children will be given a reading record book and we would encourage them and adults to complete them as a record of home reading. If your child does take their book home, please make sure that they bring it back to school each day.

How can parents help?

Many children find work on telling the time challenging.  Please encourage them to practise at home using analogue and digital times; telling the time, working out time intervals etc.

By the end of year 4, the objective is for all children to know their times tables  up to 12x12 so any support you can provide with recalling times tables would be appreciated.

Encourage your child to take as much pride in their homework presentation as their presentation in school books.
