Homework in Tiger Class

21 Sep 2018

In Tiger Class, we encourage the children to share a book with an adult on a daily basis at home if possible.  As well as reading school reading books, this could include having a bedtime story read to them, looking at a library book together or visiting 'Bug Club'.  Please initial and date the reading diary whenever you read together at home (and feel free to make a comment).  You can access your child's Bug Club account at:
Login details can be found on the inside front cover of your child's reading diary.

In Years 1 and 2, the children have space in their week by week reading diary to write or draw about a favourite book each week.  Please support your child to spend 10-15 minutes on this each week.  This can be a book which they have read themselves or one which has been read to them, either in class or at home.  Reading diaries will be checked on Mondays.

The children are also provided with weekly word lists based on the phonics work they have been doing, along with some 'tricky words'.  These can be found by clicking on the link to the left of the screen.

From time to time, the children will also come home with 'Big Talk' homework to help them to prepare for a piece of writing they are due to do in class.  It usually comes home in the form of a slip selotaped to your child's jumper which explains the task.  We find that if the children have had the opportunity to talk through their ideas for a piece of writing the day before, then they are more ready to write when they are presented with the writing task.  Also, if they have ideas at their fingertips, they are more able to focus on the technical side of writing such as grammar, punctuation and spelling because the composition work has been done in advance.

As ever, please do not hesitate to get in touch if we can help in any way.
