9 Children should record their opinions about the texts they read in their reading diary. Reading and phonics will be streamed. Writing will generally be topic based, looking at a variety of different texts, such as longer stories, information texts, recounts, persuasive writing and poetry. Writing will not be streamed. Reading and library books  Children have guided reading sessions each week.  Children will be heard individually each week before changing their books to check comprehension and accuracy.  We will record the books they are taking home in their reading log to ensure they are reading a range of styles.  Every week your child can take a new library book if they return their previous one.

10 Reading activities at home  All parents have been sent home a leaflet with suggested reading activities and websites.  You will also receive a bookmark with suggested questions you can ask your child before, during and after reading a book.  Please ensure your child shares and reads other books with you, e.g. from the library or their own collections.  Children can record all books they read in their communication book.

11 Phonics · Children have discrete phonic lessons throughout the week helping them work on their current phase and preparing them for the Phonic Test in June. · In order to pass the test they need to be fluent in all phases to Phase 5).

12 Key Stage 1 Expected standard for writing The pupil can write sentences that are sequenced to form a short narrative. They need to: · use capital letters and full stops · use their phonic knowledge when spelling words · spell some common exception words · form lower case letters correctly · ensure letters are the correct size · leave spaces between words

13 Writing Process · Cold task – from which we set targets for the topic. · Learn the text using actions. · Teach skills relating to targets. · Hot task - where children apply their new skills.

14 In writing all children must: · form all letters correctly when writing on lines, i.e. descenders go down below the line and ascenders are tall · use capital letters at the beginning of sentences and for Proper Nouns (names) · use full stops at the end of a sentence · have clear spaces between words · spell the days of the week correctly · If your child is struggling with these please practise at home
