Nurture, Grow, Succeed




Homework in Year one is focused upon reading. We ask that you listen to your child read each day but as a minimum three times a week. We listen in class to each child read during the week and when your child has shown enough progress we will change their reading book. Practice makes perfect! 

Each week the children will be given 5 common exception words. We will track your child's progress with these in class and will initially focus upon the reading of the word and then the writing of the word. 

On Friday, each week we will check to see how many times your child has read at home and will stamp their record if 3 or more entries are listed. The child will also be given an extra 'dojo' point which is part of our reward system. 

The children will also visit the school library each week to borrow and return books. 

Please make sure your child has their book bag each day!
