Where Are The Wild Things?

Welcome back to school, we are going to learn about farm and wild animals. This will involve sorting and classifying, matching adult and baby animals.

Reading at home tips

  • Find a time that is good for your family routine each day to read the book.
  • Encourage your child to talk about the pictures, characters and setting. There is a list of questions you can ask in the diary.
  • Ask your child to make predictions about what will happen in the book.
  • If your child comes across a word that is unfamiliar, talk about the meaning.
  • Remember to sign the diary everytime you read at home, so they can get a sticker for their reward chart.
  • Please watch the videos below to help your child apply their phonic knowledge to read the words.

This website contains a free e-book library, search for level 1+ or 2 books, we also use these in school. There is an option for your children to listen to the story as well as read it. I would recommend using one phonics book a week and read real books everyday. The children benefit from exploring a combination of fiction and non-fiction texts.
