Your child should have brought home a yellow Whole Class Reading jotter today.

Every Wednesday, we have a reading lesson which we do together (rather than in reading groups.) The idea of this is to expose the children to a range of texts, so that they learn to read stories, poems and facts that do not include Biff, Chip and Kipper!

Today, we read a postcard from Dinosaur Dan.

  • We looked for keywords (and)
  • We highlighted all the letter “S”
  • We showed Dinosaur Dan how to write the word “I” with a green capital letter pen.
  • We used red pend to mark the full stops.
  • We showed that we understood the text by drawing a picture of what Dinosaur Dan did on his holidays.

Please take a few minutes to look over the text with your child. Encourage him/her to tell you about the circles, highlights and marks. To support this at home, you might want to help your child send a postcard to Granny and Grandad, Aunties and Uncles, friends or even to Primary 1!

PLEASE ENSURE THAT JOTTERS ARE RETURNED TO SCHOOL EVERY MONDAY MORNING. (Tuesday next week, as we are on holiday!)

I need the jotters in school so I can prepare texts for the next lesson.

Thank you for your support.
