Bug Club has been updated so there are plenty of books to keep you going over the summer holidays.
At John Clifford, we believe that reading is very important. We allow the children to engage in reading in a number of ways, including:
- daily whole class story time
- children being able to choose their own reading book
- open reading mornings and afternoons
- reading buddy classes
- guided reading sessions
- access to a range of text types in the classrooms for children to choose to read.
We ask that to support your child with their reading that you read with them at least three times a week at home. For each time your child reads at home, they are rewarded with a class bee token to put towards their hive total.
We are always looking out for reading volunteers too to help read with children at school. If you have the time to spare, please see Mrs Laud who will be able to give you some more information.
Your child is given reading targets as part of their guided reading sessions. Their targets are discussed with them. You can see what your child has been working on at school by taking a look at their reading target sheet in their Reading Diary. Please feel free to tick when you see these targets being used at home too.
Writing in Year 1
Weekly Maths Task
Each week we will be setting a 'Math Task' for your child to complete at home. The task will be a skill to practise or a follow up activity to a lesson they have had. We will not be asking for homework to be returned to school but hope that you and your child will continue to practise these important skills.
What can you do to help?
