Welcome

Home Reading

Each child has a home reading book and record. We have assessed and chosen the level of this book for your child in order to ensure this meets their reading needs. We will read this book with your child in class but it is also important that they are read with daily at home. This is part of their weekly homework. Your child will benefit from reading 4-5 pages and then talking about what they have read. They could discuss the characters, what they think will happen next or answer questions you ask them. 

Every time your child reads at home, they earn a sticker on their reading chart which, when completed, will see them celebrated in our Celebration Assembly on a Monday.

 

Please use the document below to help you ask your children questions as they read. This document is also stuck into your child's reading record.

Outdoor Kit: Long black or blue jogging bottoms, a white PE T-shirt and a warm black or blue jumper to keep them warm in the winter months. Children will also need suitable trainers.

All items will need to be labelled.
