Relax and Read!!

Posted on Thursday 20 January 2011 by Mrs Weekes

January 2011 073In Year 1 we spend time every day reading; it might be reading with an adult or it might be reading independently.  Please remember that it is important to read “real” books as well as the reading books that the children bring home; your child will become a much more fluent reader if they experience a wide range of books.  There will be a leaflet coming home soon with some questions you can ask your child when they have read a book as it is essential that they understand the different features of the text. 

Enjoy some reading time with your child; it is a very valuable and enjoyable time!

We have only been back two weeks and we have done so much already.  The children have made a brilliant start to 2011; they are working hard and have learnt basketball skills and circus skills.   Ask them what they learnt in the circus skills workshop but don’t let them spin your plates as they only practised with plastic ones!
