Learning

Reading
 
We love reading in sycamore.  Children take part in guided reading groups, have individual reading time and enjoy listening to the teacher read a class book.  We encourage reading a range of fiction and non-fiction texts.  We also have a reading for pleasure session where children can read or bring in a chapter, picture, reference or comic of their choice and share it with their friends.
 
We kindly ask parents when they can, to read other books to and with their child to promote the enjoyment of reading. 
 
 
 
Spelling
 
We have weekly spelling tests on a Friday.  The spellings for the following week are also introduced every Friday.  We will use their reading record to let you know how they achieved.
