Week Beginning - 25th January 2016
We are growing to love reading!
In Dosbarth Gwyrdd, we have started a new reading reward system, to encourage children to read more at home. We ask if children could read at least 3 times a week at home; this could be 5 minutes or 15 minutes, the emphasis is upon improving children's reading skills further and developing a love of reading. We read with children on a daily basis in school, through guided reading and phonic sessions, in addition to reading the home readers with them. Whilst your child may not be reading their home readers on a daily basis in school, we are teaching reading skills and work with the children daily through different reading games and activities.
Our new classroom reading reward system is called 'We are growing to love stories.' When the children read three times in one week (Monday - Sunday) they will move up to the next flower. Once they have reached the top flower, they will receive a prize. The children are all very enthusiastic about this new system and are looking forward to moving up the flowers as they read more at home. We appreciate that some weeks this will be difficult; however, it does not matter who the child reads with, whether they read a few pages to themselves, their grandparents, friends, family members or parents/carers. We just ask that when they have read at home, that it is recorded in their reading records. We thank you for your continued support and cooperation in your child's learning experiences. It is much appreciated.
This year we will be studying three different topics:
Autumn Term - Supermarkets
Spring Term - Carnival
Summer Term - Wriggle and Crawl
If you have any exciting resources or ideas that you think may support any of our three topics, please let Miss Stewart or Mrs Jones know, as it will be greatly appreciated!
