Below is our documentation on Handwriting. Handwriting is having a big push in all classes this academic year - we always strive for excellence! Take a look at the scheme and print off the guidelines to have a practice at home.
Reading with your child
At Millbrook, we believe that reading is a crucial life skill for every child to acquire, as it underpins all learning across the curriculum.
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” ― Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!
Below you will find some recommended reading lists. Some of the texts chosen are tried and tested classics; noteworthy books for many years. Our aim is to give your child as wide and as rich a reading experience as possible. If you would like to look for more recommended book titles for your child, then I would recommend that you visit The Literacy Booktrust website at: http://www.booktrust.org.uk/books/children/100-best-books/
Please use these lists as a guide or reference to either borrow books from your local library or to purchase some new ones. All of the books listed should be easily available in most bookstores or online.
Not every book on the recommendation lists will appeal to every child, but have a look and see if you can find some that can support and inspire your child to develop a love for reading.
Children can sign up to take part in Space Chase at Tameside libraries this summer holidays. It’s fun, friendly and absolutely free! All you have to do is read 6 library books and collect rewards along the way. The challenge launches on Saturday 6 July and runs until Christmas, so there is plenty of time to get on with that reading!
