Please complete and send the book back into school by the following Tuesday.

It is hugely beneficial for the children to read regularly. Varying the way reading happens can help to keep it interesting.
For all ages of children, it is still valuable to sometimes have a story read to them as they can experience a more proficient reader's use of expression, intonation and pace.
Listening to your child reading is also important, as it provides opportunity to consolidate the reading of familiar words, whilst also decoding new words and sentence structures with adult support.
Discussing the books content is an essential part of reading as this supports the development of the child's comprehension skills, whilst also helping them to start formulating their own opinions about what they read.
You should have now received your child's personalised High Frequency Word list, which shows the key vocabulary that they need to practise. At the same time, it can be useful to check in with some of the other words on the list of HfWs to consolidate and rehearse these spellings too. Further resources to support this can be found at http://www.raglanciwvcprimary.co.uk/english-resources/
Home Learning-5th July 2018
Please rehearse quick recall of the 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times tables. Ask others to quiz you or play a bingo game with the multiples like we have been doing in class. This will really help you as you prepare to move into Year 4. If you are confident with these tables already, double the 3s to make the 6 times table, double the 4s to make the 8 times table and rehearse quick recall of these too.
Next week we will sending books home from the past year as well as any we have remaining from Year 2. It would be very useful if you could bring a bag with you next week to help you to carry them home.
Have a good weekend all!!
