Homework and Home Reading

  • A home learning task is set on Tapestry each Friday under 'Planned Activities' to be completed for the following Wednesday
  • Once your child has learnt several sounds, they will start to come home with a home reading 'Blending Book'. Please practise reading regularly, sign the diary to say when your child has read, and ensure the book and reading diary are brought to school every day
  • Your child will also being home a green Speed Sounds Book - this is to keep at home and use regularly to practise recognising the sounds and writing the letters correctly.
