Welcome to Feather Tor.
During the year we are hoping to update regularly so we can keep you informed about learning in year two. We have welcomed the children into year two and introduced them to the new routines. Well done to all the children who have made great steps towards becoming more independent by entering the classroom and organising their coats, bags, water bottles, book bags and P.E. bags (please check everything is labelled with your child's name).
Reading books should be in school everyday. The children have an independent book banded reading book. This book has been carefully selected to be at a reading level that your child can access fairly independently. As a parent, you can greatly benefit your child's progress by hearing them read regularly and talking about the meaning of words, reasons for events, retelling parts of the text or discussing why characters have made decisions. If you are unsure of your child's book band, then please ask Mr Evely.
Each term we assess the children's book band and adjust it in the best interests of a child's progress. This decision is closely linked to guided reading in class, where children access a more challenging text supported by a trained adult.
If you would like more advice on how to support your child, please pop in after school and speak to one of us.
The class have been working hard to follow increasingly challenging sets of instructions. We start with one simple instruction to see if the class can listen and follow it accurately. Then we build up to two instructions, and so on. Your support with this would be fantastic, as the children have found accurate listening for several instructions is a complex skill.
