Reading at home

The children are enjoying learning to read in school and taking a reading book and library book home each week. A few parents have asked for advice when hearing their child read at home. This short video is very useful and gives some good tips about how to hear your child read. Please watch it and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask a member of our team

Helping your child to read at home

We loved watching our Year 5 Buddies singing their Christmas songs

Sing our tricky word songs with us!

We are learning to read tricky words in class and we love singing these songs to help us learn the words.

We can't sound out tricky words as they wouldn't make sense...this is why they are very tricky! In class we are learning; the, I, go, no, into, to, he, we, she and be. 

Please help us at home to recognise these words by sight. There might be tricky words in our reading books that we can point out, or even in our favourite story books at home. 

 

 

Red and Green Butterflies BLOG!

Chatterbox - time to chat about your favourite book!

amanda on: Red and Green Butterflies BLOG!

Red and Green Butterflies all love Chatterbox time and listening to each other talking about their favourite things from home. It gives the children an opportunity to talk to their classmates and answer questions about their special objects. The children have also improved their listening and attention skills as they sit quietly and listen to the child whose turn it is to be the "Chatterbox".

From now on we would like the children to bring their favourite book into school when it is their turn to be the "Chatterbox". They will need to talk to their classmates about their book and explain why it is their favourite. We will then enjoy reading the book together at story time.

Happy half term!

amanda on: Red and Green Butterflies BLOG!

The children have worked incredibly hard this half term and we are very proud of them. They have completed their weekly homework with enthusiasm as well as regularly reading their books and tricky word bookmarks.

Thank you to all the parents who have added photos and videos on Tapestry as part of the homework. We love seeing the learning that takes place at home.

During half term we would like your child to choose one (or more) of these activities:

  • Listen to their favourite story
  • Play a game
  • Visit their favourite place
  • Spend time with their friends and/or family
  • Watch their favourite movie or TV programme
  • Play outside
  • Ride their bike or scooter
  • Fun activity of their choice!

If you would like to share what your child chooses to do on Tapestry or in their home learning book we would love to hear about it.

Have a fun half term!

We have loved being number takers!

amanda on: Red and Green Butterflies BLOG!

Red and Green Butterflies have had fun this week learning about taking away. We have discussed that when we take away it makes the number smaller. 

We played a game and had to take away marshmallows....by eating them! In groups we used language such as 'take away' and 'equals' to talk through what we had done. 

Well done everybody! 

Challenge - Be a number taker at home. What can you take away? Crisps, grapes...have a go!
