Ongoing Learning

This week we will be sending home two books. One will be for your child to read and the other will be a story that you can read and enjoy together. The year 1 team will also begin reading with your child each week. Please ensure that your child has their reading journal and levelled book packed each day so that they can enjoy this experience. Reading journals will be used as a communication between parents and teachers so please write in them and share your perspective of your child’s learning as they grow.

Your child’s Reading Egg and Mathletics  logins and passwords will be at the back of the reading journal. These are great tools to support your child’s developing literacy and maths knowledge but please engage with them at your child’s own pace. This year you will find Reading Eggs has also been updated with a program called ‘Fast Phonics’. This is an engaging way to support your child’s sound recognition and reading. More information about this will be coming out shortly.
