Reading books are sent home with guidance on how to support your child with their reading. We also assign books to Bug Club online library. Homework is set on seesaw. This is where teachers set work digitally for the children to complete on a device at home, which can then be sent back for the teachers to respond to. 


Learning Projects:

Autumn B- Do you want to be friends?

Spring A- Dangerous dinosaurs

Spring B- Puppets and pop ups

Our Learning Project this half term is Puppets and Pop ups. The children will watch a puppet show and learn how different puppets move. They will listen to a variety of stories, make their own puppets and perform group puppet shows. 



 Further information on Bug Club.

The children will be using an online reading resource called Bug Club.

Please help your child to read the books allocated to them on active learn.

Remember, at the end of the book there are questions for your child to complete. To answer a question, just click on the bug icon. 

When your child has finished all the quiz questions in a book, they will earn 'Active Learn Coins'. By reading more books, your child will earn enough coins to 'buy' a reward in one of the many reward schemes. The answers to the quiz questions will be sent back to our teacher site so that we can see how your child is progressing. Thank you.


How to help your child this half term:

Talk to your child about their day in school. Share stories every day at home. Encourage your child to dress themselves each morning. Encourage your child to wait their turn to talk and answer questions clearly. Help your child with their reading book and key words. Log onto Bug Club so your child can read the online books allocated to them.
