Term 1 timetable



  • Reading with your child every night is enjoyable and valuable.

  • Term 1 home reading is the 'comprehension' book that has the 'speech' label on

         the front cover.  Inside the front cover are instructions on how to support your child's oral

        comprehension as well as recommended questions for 4-5 year-olds on some of the  pages. 

  • These books will be sent home on Fridays.

  • ​Decodable readers will begin early in term two when your child and/or when they are believed to be ready both academically and emotionally. This is critical as we do not want to discourage students from being confident to read by overwhelming them. Home readers will be changed on Fridays so please help your child to remember their homework bag (probably the tartan one with two zippers).

Speaking and Listening

  • Talk and listen to your child.

  • Model being an attentive listener.

  • Explain the meaning of new words. Use them in a sentence.

  • NEWS:  plan and rehearse your child’s news before going to the school on the news-telling day.


  • Play cards and board games.

  • Go shopping together. ID and use coins. Talk about how many (more/less/equal), how much, how heavy/light, long/short...

  • Cook together. Talk about how many, how much, how heavy/light, long/short (time & length), hot/cold...

  • Play outside together. Score, strategise.

  • Have fun.
