World book day

Sunday 10 March 2019

Thank you to those of you who came to the stay and read on Thursday 07 March. The children really enjoyed sharing stories with you. It was also a great opportunity to highlight the importance of your child reading their school reading book as often as possible – daily is recommended in order to support your child’s reading development.

The children also enjoyed sharing the adventurous words they have been exploring at school. Whilst your child reading to you is important, it is also important that you read to your child. This way your child will be able to experience more ‘adventurous’ words that would not be in their own school reading book. We are constantly picking out adventurous words from stories we read at school – this is a great way to develop your child’s vocabulary.

We would also like to say a HUGE well-done to all children in Foundation class for putting on a fantastic assembly. The children were very confident and spoke loudly in such a big assembly hall. We hope you enjoyed the assembly too.

The home-link this week is in your child’s book bag. This week we are asking you to listen to your child re-tell a favourite story. We are often re-telling stories in school using the story actions and sentence starters that we used in our assembly on Friday (First, Then, Suddenly, After that, Luckily, Finally). Please return the home-link this week. Home-links are a great opportunity for us to hear about your child’s learning at school and gain a bigger picture of what your child can do.
