In Robins, we hope that all children will develop a love of reading. We have a wide variety of books in the library for children to read, and welcome books which are brought in from home. We ask that children read or have the opportunity to listen to a story be read to them every day.
Your child will be issued a reading book and a library book every week. We are happy to send home more than one reading book if your child likes to read a variety of books throughout the week. If you would like to change your child's book more frequently, please feel free to do so at the end of the day.
We also would like to see all children accessing their Bug Club account where they can choose from a selection of books.
In Robins, all children have a red communication diary. Every Friday your child will get the sounds they have been learning that week in Phonics, stuck in for you to practise with them at home. These will vary between children as our phonics groups are streamed across the unit. You will also receive some 'tricky' words to learn and high frequency words.
If your child has been recapping the same sounds you will not receive new sounds that week. This will only be for one week at any one time.
Other Home Learning
At different points through out the topics you maybe asked to complete Home Learning Challenges with your child. These will not be weekly as we know you are already busy reading books, learning phonics and working on your childs personal target. We will send home at least one challenge per half term.
We love seeing what your child has been doing at home and will always share and value other learning, photos or messages they bring into school.
