Daily (15-20 mins)
Reading Records must be brought into school every Monday to be checked. It may be that the Reading Record is checked more than once during the week. Children are able to change their reading book whenever they need to.
Children may also borrow books from the Infant Library. We encourage the children to share their library book with an adult at home as well.
|Key words/ Spelling||
Please can you regularly revisit the Year 1 Common Exception Words with your child to ensure that they can read and spell them correctly. It would also be useful to begin looking at the Year 2 Common Exception Word list in advance of the children beginning Year 2. Also it would be helpful if you could make sure that your children practice how to spell their surnames as well as using capital and lowercase letters correctly in their first name.
|Number Facts and Times Tables||
It would be useful if the children could be given opportunities at home to practice the following key maths skills: number formation, spelling number words up to 20, number recognition up to 100, counting forwards and backwards, recognising one more or one less of a given number, adding and subtracting single and two digit numbers, and doubles up to 20.
