Reading & Phonics
My teacher says I enjoy reading in lots of different environments.
Charlie, age 8
Here at Tinsley Meadows we aim to promote a healthy lifestyle and a love of excersise. We expect all children to change into an appropriate PE kit when they do PE.
All children must bring full PE Kit into school, which should be in a named bag and must be kept in school every day:
• a white PE t-shirt
• black shorts or leggings
• a tracksuit for outdoor PE in cold weather
• a pair of trainers (Children are NOT allowed to wear trainers during the school day except in PE lessons. They must change into trainers for PE.)
Tuesdays & Thursdays
How to help your child in Aqua
The more children read the more fluent they become. Therefore we encourage children to read at home as much as possible. They can change their reading books each morning as they come into class and show their teacher their reading record from home. Each time a child reads at home they are given a sticker at school to collect which the children gain prizes for.
Phonics is a way of teaching children how to read and write. It helps children hear, identify and use different sounds that distinguish one word from another in the English language. Ask your child what they have been learning in phonics and help to practise at home. Each child will be given a list of all the different sound combinations so they can practise at home.
Parents in Class
Regular parents events are planned to invlove parents in their children’s learning.
Homework should be handed in on Tuesdays.
