We hope that you are enjoying reading with your children now we have started to send their books home with them. Please write a comment in your child's diary when you have heard them read.


Through our assessments, we have noticed that lots of the children are struggling to blend sounds together. This means, they can say the sounds individually, C-A-T, but then can't read the whole word as 'cat.' You can play games like this...: 

Balloon Phonics Game

teach your monster to read help them with this skill!



Please take any opportunity to include counting into your daily routine. Can you count the stairs as you walk down them? Can they show you how many they have on their fingers? Can they spot numbers whilst they are out and about?




We expect our children to take responsibility for their classroom and toys; it is their space to care of. We will always support our children to be independent learners and you can help with this by encouraging them to dress/undress independently, helping to prepare meals (using tools safely) and having small responsibilities around the house such as pairing socks and putting their toys away.



Joining the Library


We believe that stories and reading is one of the most important things to share and we wouldn't want anyone to miss out. Joining the library and borrowing books is completely free. Our closest library is on Narborough Road (although there are lots of libraries all over the city). There are no forms to fill in, just drop in with some proof of ID. Why not pop in after school? You can join for free and start borrowing today!
