Literacy

When we teach our children Literacy, we always ensure that there is a secure link between reading, writing and phonics. Our children understand that if they can read a word, then they can also write the word too.

 

Spelling lists

This is our year groups spelling list that our children will be learning to read and spell (independently in a spelling test and in their writing). It is the list of words that each child should be able to spell by the end of their current class year.

Reading

Bug Club http://www.dcpschool.co.uk/page/7102a956465644e1a74468a9bf732cad/pic/b098fd4052374811942d0a78c9748dd6/full_width/check/

We subscribe to the Bug club which is an online reading resource. This exciting website has books, games and rewards for the children. The children all have their own individual log on so that we can make sure that the things on their site are just right for them. The children all have books at the correct level for them to read and there are questions for them to answer about the books. Correct answers will earn coins and jewels to spend in the site on rewards! If you would like to ask any questions about how to use it or if the children have forgotten their username or passwords, please feel free to see us either before or after school.

 

Grammar and Spelling Bug Club

The children can also play games on the Grammar and Spelling Bug Club section. This compliments the learning that we undertake in school.

 

Our key author

Each term we will have a key author or novel study book.

 

Year 1 & 2 Book List.

 

This is a list of books which we hope your child will enjoy reading. The books cover a wide interest and ability range and it is not meant to be definitive, or to circumscribe the books your child reads. We hope you find these suggestions informative and helpful in promoting the reading habit. There are more links in the Literacy Learning Section.
