To help the children to settle back into school life again, we will be setting homework that focuses on reading, spellings and times tables for now. We will continue to review this as the term progresses and use our knowledge of pupils to decide on where we go with homework moving forwards.
Please listen to your child read at least 3 times a week, if not more, we would really like for them to work on their fluency and understanding of a text. Home reading books will be changed once a week if the children are ready to change them, this is usually on a Thursday. If your child is enjoying a book that they have at home, that is absolutely fine but please record any reading in their diaries- they should be coming home with this every night.
We would really like to celebrate reading at Far Forest and now with our new library, the children are becoming keen to choose and share books with others. The children have 2 further books that they choose from the library each week, a fiction and a non-fiction text which they read in class everyday.
Please continue to support your child with reading at home, we really appreciate your support with this.
Please find the spellings that the children will be set each week, they will be tested every Friday. We have allocated catch up spellings for those that are finding the Year 3/4 list tricky and also to close gaps from the previous year. Should you need any clarification, please come and speak to us.
Thank you for your support.
