Parent Information

Please continue to support your child’s learning at home by:
Daily reading – this is essential to practice the skills taught in class, let us know in the Reading Record if you have any worries or want to share something amazing they’ve achieved in their reading.
Number Bonds – to learn to rapidly recall number pairs that make 10 and 20 is a valuable skill.

We are always so pleased to see any work that your child may choose to do at home; please look at the ideas for Home Learning and see if you can work with your child to complete some of the suggested tasks sent home for each topic.
At Sherborne Primary, we follow the Letters and Sounds phonics scheme. We use the Oxford Reading Tree and Big Cats Phonics books as our reading scheme. If you have any questions about phonics or reading, please see Mr Maitland.
