Select one task per week to complete.
Spellings will be sent home every Term to be tested in class on Thursdays. Spellings will also be uploaded to Class Dojo.
Children should aim to read at home regularly for at least 10 minutes every day. It is important that what your child is reading is discussed so that they have a better understanding of the text. Children are expected to read 3 times a week to an adult at home. Their reading records should go home every day and come back to school to be used too.
Good inference questions to ask your child are:
- Why do you think the character did that?
- How would you describe the character’s personality? Give an example.
- What do you think will happen next based on what you’ve just read?
