Reading at home

Thursday 09 September 2021

Children will be bringing home a reading book this week. These will be changed once a week to minimise books moving between home and school.

Please return books to be changed on Wednesday. We will quarantine books before putting them back in the system.

The ‘practise phonics’ book (sticker on the front cover) is for children to work on their ‘sounding out’ of words.

Please comment on how your child copes with the books as it may take us a little time to adjust and match books to each child. Year 2s will gradually move away from phonics books and have more freedom to be ‘free readers’ – reading whatever they choose.

Children will also choose a library book each Friday. Please bring your library book back each Friday if your child would like a different one.

Help us help your child by reading anything and everything you can.

THANK YOU!
