How to support your child at home...
Below are some useful websites that will help support and extend learning.
Your child will receive a picture book to read at home during the second Autumn term. Please read this book throughout the week, asking questions, looking at pictures, thinking about characters feelings and using story telling language (once upon a time, next, after that, four leaf clover my story is over.)
Once your child has learnt and is confident with their Set 1 sounds they will be given a red ditty book to decode and read.
Enjoy reading and sharing books at bedtime and any time, this is perfect for developing knowledge of story structure and vocabulary. Try making predictions asking the children what they think might happen before you turn the page and of course read variety - story books, magazines, instructions, poetry and non-fiction.
