Reading books

Thank you for supporting your child by helping them to read at home. It really is so important for their progress in school. Please can we remind you (if you don’t already) to send your child’s reading book into school everyday. If there any problems with this please have a word.


In phonics we have books for the children to read in pairs. The children work together as one child points to the words as the other child reads a page at a time. These books help the children build on their phonic knowledge and they get the chance to help each other with any words they are stuck on.

We love Stick Man

This half term, our quality text is another great story by Julia Donaldson; ‘Stick Man’. The children have been retelling the whole story using actions – it’s very impressive.

Our story map helps us to remember the story.

We really enjoyed making our own stick men. We visited the forest again to pick our sticks and Mrs Garbutt helped us to join them together and add features.
