What a fantastic week in school! There has been some great learning taking place and I owe a huge thank you to all the staff, parents and pupils who have been so patient with such significant building works taking place. I know I say it all the time, but it is so important to keep reading everyday at home! We use decodable reading books to support the teaching of early reading and these books are precisely matched to the phonics has been taught in school. By now a child in FS2 would hopefully know nearly 16 phonemes so practising them at home to build up speed is vital. All children have reading diaries throughout school and we will be launching another reading challenge in Autumn 2. We also allow children to choose books to develop a love of reading from the school library and we have some great books to take home. My personal recommendation is the Tom Fletcher series! Happy reading!
