Children in Skippers are expected to read as often as possible at home with an adult. They will be sent home with a reading book and their reading diary within the first two weeks of school. Each time you read with your child at home please fill in their reading diary so we know they have read and can change their book accordingly.
Each child also has a 'sound book' to take home with the sounds we are learning in school for you to continue to practice with them. They will also be given an envelope with individual sounds and tricky words to practice. Using the sound cards they could play lotto games or begin word building with the sounds when they are ready.
They will be given a number line to take home so they can practice number recognition and ordering to 20.
