USEFUL TIPS

  • Reading every night will help you to grow into a super reader! Talk about what you've read with your parent or loved one and discuss what you think might happen next, the meaning of new words and how you can relate to the story. Don't just read your school reading book but read books from home or the library, newspapers, non-fiction books and poems. Think about what the characters are like and if they are similar to other characters you've read about in other books. Compare similarities between the books by the same author and think about the illustrations and what they show. 

  • Find time in the day (walking to School or before bed) to count in 2s, 5s and 10s and see how quick you can do it. 

  • Increase your independence by getting dressed on your own and helping out with jobs around the house. 

  • Complete your homework and make sure it’s uploaded onto Google Classroom by Monday. This shows me that you really care about your learning and you will be ready for action at the start of the week. Get your parent or carer to sign your reading record and record the page numbers you have read-this shows us that you are dedicated to your reading at school and at home. 

  • It is ok to make mistakes..... but we must remember to try and make it better with our fresh start- because  every day is a new day!
