smiley Hello and welcome to Class 5 smiley

 

Mrs Lucas teaches in Class 5

Reading Book and Reading Diary.

Reading diaries will go home each night with a sticker in them with the colour book that your child should be reading. On the day that students read with the teacher they will bring home their group book to re-read what they have read in class. Children should aim to read for 15 minutes per night and will be awarded 1 dojo per time that they have read.

 

The school library is also open on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday after school , where they can choose a book to issue out.

Swimming

Children need to remember to bring their swimming kits every Thursday. 

PE

Children need to Remember to Bring their PE kits every Tuesday.

Homework

Homework will be handed out every Wednesday and returned every Wednesday.

Children will have spelling homework one week and Maths homework the following week. If your child is struggling with their homework please have them bring it in before it is due so Mrs Lucas can work on it with them.

Water bottle

Can you make sure your child brings a reusable water bottle to school each day.

Coat As it is getting colder could children please bring a rain coat.

How to encourage reading

Take your child to the school library or public library and let them choose a book of their choice. If you are unsure if the book is the right level for your child use the five finger rule- Open the book to any page and ask your child to read. Put your finger up every time your child does not know a word. If you put up more than five fingers before the end of the page than the book is too hard for them.

Make reading a part of family time by reading bedtime stories together, read a recipe and cook something together! Put your child in charge of reading the grocery list when you do your shopping.

Let your children see you reading.

 

How to read with a beginner reader

  • Start by looking at the cover and making predictions about what the story will be about.
  • Let them hold the book and turn the page
  • Encourage your child to use his/her finger to point to each word.
  • Talk about the story as you read it. E.G what do you think will happen next? What does this story remind you of? How do you think this character feels?
  • Don’t be afraid to read the same book again. Repeated reading helps build reading fluency.
