‘Guiding explorers of the future’

Welcome back. We hope you had a fab winter break. A busy term ahead! Don't forget you can sync your phone to the school calendar so you don't miss out on any future events. Thank you :)



Reading at home:

When you listen to your child read please write in the Partnership Book:

  • The page your child has read to.
  • Any relevant comments on the way your child read
  • Any words that your child found difficult


The children will have the opportunity to change their reading books daily if their Partnership Book has been signed.


Reading should be a relaxed and enjoyable time for you both therefore please offer praise and encouragement for all your child's efforts. Talk about the book together to further your child's understanding of the text and its key features. 


Reading books and Partnership Books should be in school everyday.

Please encourage your child to keep their reading books and Partnership Books in the plastic bag provided. This helps to keep everything together when the children put their books in the Reading box.


The children have been given a bookmark. Each day  we check the Partnership books and if the children have read at home and their Partnership books have a comment or have been signed the bookmarks are dated. In class the children also move their owl up the Reading Tree when they read at home. If children reach the top of the Reading Tree they receive a certificate.

Word hunt


Are there any words your child is finding difficult to spell or read?

Put these words on post it notes and hide them around your house.  You could hide them in your fridge, under their bed or even in their coat pockets.

When you child finds these words they have to read it or write it down.


Perhaps, once they have found 10 they could get a special reward. 


Have fun!
