Reading at home

We are currently not sending books home because of having to quarantine them on their return.  Some of you have asked for advise about what your child should be reading.  We suggest you use Oxford Owl, where you will find free e-books.  You can access the books by age, but obviously we are all different and not every one is reading at age expected.  As a general rule your child should struggle with about 1 in every 10 words, otherwise the reading becomes a chore.  If the book is too easy, try the next level, if your child is struggling, try the level before.

Thanks for your support in this!  We are continuing to hear your child read, both individually and in a group.  We are recording what they read in their reading record and keeping that in their desks in the meantime.

We have been practising ordinal numbers in maths and today we linked this to PE and the children ran races to see who would come first, second and third.  
In PE the children focused on how to roll and receive the ball.  They surprised Josh and Jack with their skills and they have been told they will probably move onto catching next week.
