Year 1 - Eager Elephants - Mrs Crowther

Home Learning

Home learning will be set on a Friday and is to be completed and returned to school by the following Wednesday. These activities are to promote educational discussions between yourself and your child.




The guided reading book read by your child during the guided sessions will be sent home on a Friday with the home learning and will should be returned to school with the home learning.

A reading book at a level easy for your child to read (to build condfidence and fluency) will be sent home daily. In order for this book to be changed, ensure that you sign the reading record after reading with your child. There are a number of rewards for reading in the Eager Elephants. They will get a stamp on their stamp chart if they read three times during the week. They will get a stamp and a sticker if they read four times during the week. If they read five times in a week they will recieve a stamp, a sticker and a sweet. If your child has read less than three times during the week, an adult will hear them read their reading book during Enrichment.
