How you can help:
Support your child in learning the letter sounds and formation for each week.
Visit the local library to look for poetry, fiction and non-fiction books about pets.
Share your child’s reading book with them, giving them time to talk about what is happening in the pictures and asking them questions about the story and the characters. Remember to sign (and comment) when your child has shared their book.
Celebrate your child’s out of school achievements by filling in a ‘Proud Cloud’.
Talking tubs. Bring filled tubs in on MONDAY to share with the class.
If you have any pictures, materials or objects relating to ourselves we would really appreciate them.
