KS1 Curriculum Meeting
Thank you to those parents who joined us for our KS1 Curriculum Meeting via Zoom.
Here is a summary of the main points discussed and shared on the Slideshow.
Please send your child to school in their PE kit on the days that they have PE.
An active uniform (leggings/jogging bottoms and trainers) should be worn on all other days.
Books will be changed 3 times a week (less for AR books). Children have been assessed this week and will have the correct level book sent home from next week. We will assess them during the year to check their progress and to ensure they continue to read the right level text.

How to listen to a child's reading
1) Find a comfy place to sit and ensure you can both see the book.
2) Talk a little bit about the book - have they read any of it before? What happened? If not, look at the cover together and discuss what you notice?
3) Allow the child to start reading when ready.
4) Try not to interrupt them if they make a mistake; allow them time to spot their own mistakes and correct.
5) If they don't self-correct, ask them to take a look at that bit again and re-read. Provide a prompt if needed.
6) Listen out for the following:
-expression: do they vary how it sounds depending on what the words are?
-word recognition: how quickly they can recognise and read the words on the page.
-rhythm/phrasing: how do they group the words they are reading? Single word or in groups of 2 or 3 or even longer phrases?
-smoothness: does the reading flow well or does it sound choppy? Do they use punctuation well? Ensure they stop at full stops and don't run on into the next sentence.
Other ways to read:
A) Paired reading - take it in turns to read sentences or sections of text
B) Echo reading - you read a sentence or section of text and then the child reads it back to you.
