One of the best ways that you can help your child at home is to read with them as often as possible. We'd love to see lots of our children getting their Fab Four Reader reward!
Our Fab 4 so far this term can be seen in our photo section.
Reading your child's reading book is an enjoyable and rewarding experience for both you and your child. Please encourage your child to point to each word as they read and then as they become more confident in their letter and sound knowledge help them to segment the sounds and blend them together for each word. For example to work out how to read the word pat they would say, p-a-t, pat. For more information about how we pronounce letter sounds or if you have any questions regarding your child's reading, please do not hesitate to ask one of the team.

Numbers and Counting - every day children will count and look at recognising numbers. You can help at home by counting out objects, counting stairs on the way to bed and writing numbers too. In school we use these number cards to help.
