Homework is set on Thursdays and must be returned on the following Wednesday. Reading books can usually be changed daily- however I will confirm this to fit in with safety guidelines.
For the first term homework will consist of reading at least 3 times a week. Details of how reading books and reading records will be used and handed out will be announced at the beginning of the academic year in order to fit in with COVID guidelines.
Children will also be given a phonics mat to complete every week, which children will take home and can be returned in school or preferably put on ClassDojo as a photo.
There are also a variety of different websites which children can use to practise their skills:
This is a great website to practise reading in a fun way. Children in Maple have logons to reading eggs. The site can be accessed here.
To access a range of games to support your child's learning of phonics go to Phonics Play. Phonics pay have made all their resources free for the time being by using the username: march 20 and the password: home. This is a great resource for supporting the teaching of reading.
