Reading books - In Year One we do a daily read with either the teacher or teaching assistant. The children will need to bring their reading book and reading record every day to school.   

Homework - Fridays and to be handed in by the following Fridays.   The children have one week to complete it.

In addition we have Numbots and Teach Your Monster To Read. More information will follow in the coming weeks ahead about this.   

Uniform -  please ensure that all names are in your children's uniform especially jumpers, cardigans, coats and water bottles. 

Water bottles - your child needs to bring a water bottle to school each day containing fresh water.

We are really looking forward to working with you and your children,

Reading at Home

It is really important to read with your child regularly and develop their love of reading. We encourage the children to read for five minutes on most days. We will listen to your child read daily and will change their books when needed.  We encourage the children to read their reading book more than once. A first read will help your child to decode the words and a second re-read will help to develop fluency and understanding. Children will be given a reading book matched to their phonic ability. There will also be questions at the back of the book to support their comprehension skills. Sharing books with your child and reading bedtime stories will help your child to develop a love of reading developing their imagination and vocabulary.                        

            Please let us know if you have any questions or would like to know ways to engage your child with reading at home or further develop their comprehensions skills through questioning. Follow the link to our Phonics page for more information about the teaching of phonics at Aldwyn. You can find resources to support your child's phonics and reading at home.

Online games to support learning!  This will help practising reading numbers, number bonds, times tables and doubling and halving On this site you will find some spelling activities. There are a variety of phonic activities on this  site. This will help with practising phonic sounds, blending and reading tricky words. On this site you will find various interactive games and activities.
