Reading is incredibly important!
Please make sure that you hear your child read for 5-10 minutes every day. In addition to this, read to them and ask them questions about what you have read.
Why do you think the character did that?
What do you think will happen next?
Who are the main characters?
Where is the story set?
What do you think the story is about?
Can you describe the character? Personality? Appearance?
Want to be a Reading Champion? Read to an adult 5 or more times and bring in your signed reading diary.
Your child will bring home some teddy words. These may be a set that they have already had in Year R, however in Year 1, they now need to be able to not only read them instantly, but also spell them. They will then be expected to spell them correctly in their writing.
Encourage your child to count forwards and backwards in steps of 1 from any given number to 30.
When you’re out and about, try spotting numbers with your child. Start with number plates, house numbers and numbers on lamp posts.
What number is this? What will be the next number? What number is before this one?
Practise spelling numbers 0 – 10.
