Each week, children will be given a reading book to take home. Their reading book will match the level that they are working on in phonics. They will also have a non-fiction book and a library book they have chosen. Please read with your child every day. 

Each Friday, we will set homework for the children and this will be posted on your child's class dojo page. Please take photos of your child doing their homework and send it to your child's class teacher so we can celebrate all their good work. 

Your child has been sent home with a set of phonics flashcards and a exercise book. Children should follow the QR codes to watch the phonics lesson. Children should then practice forming the sounds in their book.
