Week Beginning 16.3.20



This week, your child will read an ORT word book with their class teacher and they will make a short comment in their reading diary. The children should continue to read the character names (Biff, Chip, Mum, Dad, Kipper and Floppy). When the children are reading we ensure they sit at the table and use a pointy finger for accurate reading. Please encourage your child to share this book or others with you at home and make a note in their reading diaries.

Target: Can you use the contents page to read your favourite part of the book?





Key Words

As part of the curriculum, we teach the children 'sight words' each week which we expect the children to be able to read within segmenting and blending. The words we have learnt are: I, a, am, is, in, it, mum, and, dad, at to, on, the, said, cat, dog, can, big, he, she, me, we, be, look, see, you, went, up, yes no go, come, some.


This week we will be revising set 2 key words.  



On Tuesday your child will share an ORT book in class.

Please share this book at home and any other story books you are sharing together and record in your reading diary. The ORT book will be handed back in on MONDAY.


Please tick the days you have read that week. The expectation is a minimum of 3 times a week. Please keep the diary in your child's bookbag everyday.  


On the table are a selection of books, please choose your current reading level.




We have chosen a book from the Library. Every FRIDAY we will be visiting the Library every week to choose a new book to share with you at home. Please ensure your child's library book is in their bookbag on a Friday in order to change it for a new one.



Days to remember:

Monday - Hand in reading diaries. Please bring back ORT reading books and give to a member of staff.

Tuesday - ORT books go home.
