It needs to come to school every day and go home each night along with my reading book and book bag
This booklet is desgned to help you support your child's learning at home. Inside are copies of the alphabet, words to read and write
Teachers will highlight letters or words that your child knows. Please help your child to learn the others at home. A good place to start is by learning the letters in their name or in the initial letters of family member's names. it is important that the children learn these slowly and securely. This may take time. Begin by revising what your hcild knows and add one new item at a time.
This book is a working document and will be updated regularly. it is important that you leave teachers to do the hihglight as we assess without the support of pictures and prompts.
also in the booklet is a grid of number to 100. Children need to learn to count to 10 intially, and later to 20, 50 and the to 100. it is also import to count backwards from these numbers and to learn to read them all in random order. Please also help your child to identify numbers that come before or after a given number.
HAVE FUN Children have had a buys and tiring day at school, they should able to come home, have a play and enjoy being a child. Keep these sessions brief and stress free.
