When books need changing there is a designated place in each class room and books will be changed on Monday and Thursdays only.Please remind your child to put their book in the right place if it needs changing, first thing in the morning.In addition to individual readers we also have shared and guided reading each week.
5 Reading at home.Please try to hear your child read and read to your child every day. Read a variety of literature together including books from the Coxheath library.When you read with your child please make a note of the page read to and a comment in the yellow reading record book.Your child will bring home a school library book on a Monday which they will be able to keep until the following week. This is a book for you to share.
6 Basic reading skills: Here are some skills to help your child read. If you get stuck on a word:Sound it out – this means saying each sound slowly then blending them together.Try missing the unknown word out of the sentence and carry on. What could it be?Look at the pictures for clues.Think about what has happened in the story so far.Remember to use the letter sounds rather than the letter names.
7 HomeworkWe expect you to read with your child daily for a minimum of 10 minutes.We expect you to write in your child’s reading record and make a comment on the reading that has taken place.In a few weeks we will be sending home a phonics book.Year 1 = a weekly phonic update.Year 2 = a phonics investigation.

8 P.EChildren must not wear earrings on P.E days, as adults in school are not allowed to remove earrings or put tape on ears. (Please remember that other jewellery should not be worn in school anyway.)If you intend to get your child’s ears pierced please do so at the beginning of the summer holidays so that children don’t miss P.E.
