Bug club and reading at home

Please find below attached video, of how we would like you to film your child reading.  Please send this in by Wednesday morning, ready for an adult to watch and give feedback. You can do this by clicking the prompt add response' on see-saw and selecting video.   

Do not have the book set on 'read to me'.  This is not the purpose for which bug club was purchased.  It is to allow the children to have access to multiple books whilst home-schooling to read (not be read to).

If you do not click on the little bugs on each page, to answer comprehension questions relating to the book, the book will not show as being read/completed.  You may also not move on, to be allocated more books.  

Please ensure that your child reads the same book on more than one occasion, this is to build fluency and expression.  

2 books have been allocated, please ensure that you only read these two books for a whole week. 

Finally, please remember to write the name of the book each day, with an adults signature.  

Miss Burton is here on Thursday's and Friday's to answer phone calls relating to bug club questions. 

Thank you

Mrs Watras and Mrs Perry in 1F

Mrs Hubbard in 1G Mrs Hubbard

PE will commence week beginning 14-09-20.  Please ensure that your child brings in their PE kit (which must be labelled).  As we will be continuing PE on the field (due to Covid) it is advisable that you purchase the tracksuit, in preparation for the colder months.  You will also be allowed to wear a plain black pair of trainers (inexpensive please) as these are better for our outdoor activities.  

 

Please ensure that from week beginning 21-09-20 that reading records are signed and returned to school daily.  If you have a message for your class teacher, please write this in the diary and let your child hand this to the teacher as they walk through the gate (we are unable to look in every child's diary on a daily basis).  Reading books will be changed every Friday.  

 

Homework is issued on a Friday online, these should be printed and practised daily.  There will be a reading and spelling check of all the words on a Friday morning.  This is part of our recovery curriculum, as these were Reception words which the children usually will have secured by July.  We will move onto Year 1 words, as soon as the Reception words have been re-taught.
