Homework and Reading in Key Stage 1
We have recently reviewed how homework is being set throughout the key stage in order to ensure there is consistency and progression. We know that homework can be stressful for some children and adults and we hope that by working together, we can eliminate any problems which may arise. As a result, after half term, all children in Key Stage 1 will be set the following homework.
When your child has read 10 times they will earn a reading star. Every time they earn 5 reading stars (50 reads) they will be awarded a certificate and a new book to take home.
How can you help?
We ask that you listen to your child read and record what they have read in their reading record.
To help ease the stress of reading at home, each year group will have a day where you can come into class early and read with your child. This will be from 8:30 until the bell. Year 1 will be on a Wednesday and Year 2 will be a Thursday.
If your child is not completing homework or reading regularly at home then they will have lunchtime homework club with Ms Darby and Miss Alcock.
Please see your class teacher if you have any questions or concerns,
Thank you for your cooperation with this.
