How is homework organised?
Homework is now focussed soley on reading. A Rocket Phonics book that is levelled at your child’s phonic ability and a shared read that will be used to develop love of reading and engagement will be sent home every Friday. The shared read should be read with yourself and your child to model intonation and expression as well as challenge. Other homework may be sent home to support learning if required at the teacher’s discretion.
All the reading that your child completes earns them points which go towards earning a book from our reading vending machine.
What reading should my child be doing each week?
Your child should be reading at least five times per week. They have access to an Independent reading book from the teacher and also a ‘Shared’ Reading book. The independent books may seem basic to parents but Government guidance states that books the children are reading cannot contain any sounds they do not know or have been taught. The shared read is given to promote reading for pleasure. I do not expect your child to read the ‘shared read’ alone, it is more something that you can look at and discuss together. Any reading that is completed needs to be entered in our Reading Record logs which need to brought in daily.
Lastly, these books will go home every Friday and need to brought back into school the following Friday.
