RE: After Easter, our new unit will be ‘The Resurrection’. We will have the opportunity to know that we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus at Easter and reflect on how we do this. The children will get to talk about their experiences of Easter as well as recognise and describe some signs and symbols of Easter.
Bring along a book or magazine any time your child has to wait. Always try to fit in reading! Little and often is key.
Once is not enough
Encourage your child to re-read favourite books and poems. Re-reading helps to read more quickly and accurately.
Dig deeper into the story
Ask your child questions about the story you’ve just read. Say something like, “Why do you think Clifford did that?”
I read to you, you read to me
Take turns reading aloud at bedtime.
When your child makes a mistake, gently point out the letters your child has overlooked or read incorrectly. Ask your child if that makes sense as they are reading it. Focus on accuracy, rather than quickness of reading!
Talk, talk, talk!
Talk with your child every day about school and things going on around the house. Sprinkle some interesting words into the conversation, and build on words you’ve talked about in the past.
Write, write, write!
Ask your child to help you write out a shopping list, a thank you note to Grandma, or to keep a journal of special things that happen at home or at the weekends. When writing, encourage your child to use the sounds or tricky words being learnt at school.
