Most homework for Kingfishers will be set via Education City. The procedure for accessing this remains unchanged: all you need is your child's ' Wonde' password and an Internet enabled device.
Homework will be set in Maths and English each week and is to be completed by the following Monday. Mrs Hall will check on Education City that the homework has been completed and children will be rewarded for completing it.
Reading is the most important thing you can do with your child at home. The expectation is that your child will read at home every night. Please ensure that you record in the reading record book when your child has read at home.
Children will have the opportunity to read every day at school in a variety of different occasions.
We have a sharing library in the classroom allowing free readers to change their book as and when they need to. Any children on the reading scheme will have their books changed as often as they need, to ensure they progress through the stages as their development allows.
Reading is all about the practice, practice, practice, we value your support in helping to develop young, confident and capable readers.
Good readers make good writers.
Every child will have a login to TT Rockstars, using their wonde logins and emoji passwords. This really helps with their confidence and speed with their times table knowledge.
Any times tables practice that they can do at home will help greatly with their speed recall of their times table facts.
Every child will be assessed and given weekly spellings to suit their ability.
Spelling test every Monday and they will share their scores with you. Please practice these as often as you can at home to help them learning these. You can use the practice book, or any other format to suit your child's needs.
We support their learning of these by daily practicing them during our handwriting time. We discuss the spelling patterns and identify what the words mean.
