A few handy things....
The Bishop's Hull Books of Everything (BHBoE) have arrived and your child has brought it home along with two reading books and a shared text (stuck in).
Please read at least 3 times a week. It’s so important they read little and often, particularly in the early stages of reading. Your child can read their book or the shared text. The shared text will change each week and is a text for you to share with your child, we don't expect your child to read every word! Please help your child to spot key words and talk about the text together. We will be reading this together in school too.
We change all the reading books on a Monday morning. In school your child will be listened to on a weekly basis either individually or in a guided group. If your child needs to change their reading book, just let us know when you drop them off.
If you have any questions about this, feel free to drop us an email or telephone the school and we will get back to you.
Things you can do to help at home:
If your child is off poorly for any reason we will have some activities that can be done at home linked to what we will be doing at school. Please click on the star at the top of the page!
The Year 1 team
There are lots of ideas for you and your child's wellbeing on our Wellbeing Page. Please take a look!
Don't forget to look on the Forest School webpage for forest school type activities you can do in your home and garden.
Lots of them are 'off screen' ideas.
