Tomorrow Lime Class will be sent home with their Love to Learn books. This is a book where we will send home little tasks from time to time. We have a few things in there... Most importantly there is a list of high frequency words that your child should know as they have been taught those so far. Please practise these. They need to read them, once they know those to read, they need to be able to start writing them.
Don't panic! They are not to be learnt in the 2 weeks, they are there to help you to know what your child needs to know. we have the year to make sure we really know them, but we need to make sure we are practising them as well as practising our phonics.
Over the holidays continue to read as much as you can (we know it can be hectic) it all counts towards Boris. We will count the amount you have read when the children return (please do not fill them in yourselves). Remember its being read with each day- please read as much as you can a day, but it will only be counted once.
There will be Nativity photos here tomorrow, and lots more Christmas fun! Two days until the festivities begin... See you tomorrow!!!
P.s. Parents who came to the phonics screening workshop: you will remember I mentioned games. Well there will be resources, my fairies are currently working hard to get them ready. They will be ready by Monday 9th January. If you want to borrow one, there will be a library system in place. Then return them when you are done.
