Welcome to our children's page!
There are some things you can do at home to help your learning in school; you might need to ask your mum, dad or carer to help you.
Try and remember to bring your bookbag to school everyday and borrow a Star book for your grown up to read to you and a Sticker book that you can read to them.
(Your password for Espresso is included on the bottom of your paper curriculum newsletters).
Your teacher will send home a page of words to learn to read and spell off-by-heart. These are known as Buzz Words because they have a bumble bee on them! When you are in Reception you will start to learn Mini Buzz A, then Mini Buzz B, C and then D.
After the Mini Buzz Sheets we have Buzz Words One (which is all of the
mini sheets together), and then there are 5 more different sets of Buzz Words
to work on as you move through the school. These form the 100+ most commonly
used words in reading and writing so will really help you in school.
Each time you have learned to read a set of words you will get a certificate and a special gold sticker. The hardest part is then learning to spell the words too so that you can write them correctly when you are doing writing activities! The teachers and helpers will make sure they check which Buzz Words you know once each half term so that you can earn your certificates and sticker rewards.
Loads more things to try and lots of different games and educational software. (N.B. you will need your child's personal log in which has been sent to you).
Love learning, Investigate ideas, Have fun!
