We would ask that you sign your child’s reading record with a comment regarding their reading e.g. Could they decode the story using their phonics e.g. b-o-x > box? Did you have to discuss new vocabulary? Did they enjoy the book? Were they able to retell the key events within the story? Could they make a prediction about what could happen next, based on their knowledge of key events in the story? Can they make links to other similar texts they have read previously?
If you feel a comment is not required, please sign to acknowledge you have read with your child.

What can we learn from different religious symbols?
This unit will provide an opportunity for pupils to explore the symbolic dimension of religious life by examining the symbols, artefacts, clothing, food and gestures that are associated with different religious traditions. It will enable them to consider the meaning that these elements hold for people of faith, both individually and collectively. The unit will highlight the non-factual dimension of religious life by enabling pupils to engage with meaning, value and mystery as these notions are encountered in religious symbols.
What contribution can religion make to our society?
This unit gives scope for pupils to explore the many ways in which religious traditions make a positive contribution to our society through their work in building communities, addressing issues of injustice and poverty, and in projects that advance social wellbeing.
