Encourage/Ask

Reading

Currently working at level


I can read aloud with expression

When your child is reading a book, encourage them to think about the punctuation used within it. Ask them to think about the effect the punctuation is having on the sentence. Encourage them to put expression in their voice and stop at the correct times. Ask your child to look for clues in the text for how characters might be talking e.g. whispered and to think about how the story should be read to keep people interested.

Writing

Currently working at level

Ask your child to think about their sentences first. Encourage them to think about what punctuation they would like to include in it. After writing, ask your child to go through their sentences and make sure the punctuation has been used correctly.

I can demarcate sentences correctly with a range of punctuation

Maths

Currently working at level

When your child is asked to find a fraction of a number encourage them to look at the fraction they are working with. Ask what is the numerator/denominator? Encourage them to think about what steps needed to be done to find the answer. Ensure your child is remembering to divide appropriately. Ask your child does their answer make sense e.g. is the answer smaller than the original number given?

I can find fractions of numbers by dividing by the denominator then multiplying by the numerator

Speaking & Listening

I can use appropriate vocabulary in formal situations.

It is really important that your child understands the difference between written and spoken English. Talk to the children about the differences which one is more formal? Less formal? Why? Do they recognise the different times they will need to use both? Within writing, your child should be aiming for a more formal style of writing. They need to ensure that when they are writing, they are using standard English.
