Children can change their books every day so they can practise their reading every night. Children also need to use their spelling cards to practise reading and writing the tricky words so they can gain bronze, silver and gold stickers. They also need to practice their number bonds so they can recall them quickly. If they read their book every school night for 10 minutes and have 5 minutes practising their tricky words or number bonds that would be 1 hour and 20 minutes of homework every week.

Many studies show that children who read for pleasure do well at school and are successful in later life.
Ask your child about their book. Sit down together and make reading a special time.
