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. We will be following the Fresh Start SoW for our Literacy lessons as well as having daily handwriting lessons.

In our curriculum, spelling section there is a list of all the BIG SPELL words which your child will be learning, so you can practise these at home. There is also an ideas section so that you can try fun and different ways to practise the spellings.

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.
