On Monday 26th September P5 will start to have reading homework sent home with a reading homework task. P5 reading homework will be a book from the library/book box chosen by your child and sent home to read for enjoyment during the week. We are also attaching a reading homework task for the children to undertake during the week and a hard copy of this will be in the school bag with their book or you can download the attachment. The task and the book will be brought back to school the following Monday to either be swapped for a different book or to be continued to be read for homework and another task will be sent home on the Monday. In class on Mondays, during library time we will have the opportunity to share and discuss the books that have been read and will have an opportunity to look at the homework that has been done.
Included in the homework task this week will be a sheet for each child to record the names of the books they have read and taken home, a copy will also be kept in school, and a task to review what they can learn from the cover of their book.
For you at home it is an opportunity to share a book that your child has chosen and to discuss with them why they have picked that book or to talk about what the book is about. It is a great way to share your child’s learning and reading experience.
My only request in providing books to read for pleasure and to support learning at home is that the books sent home are returned to school so that all the children can have a chance to read the books that are provided. Thank you and happy reading!
Regards, Mrs Leslie
