We will be sending your child home with a reading record and reading book as they had last year. Please read as much as possible with your child. 3-5 times a week is the suggested amount from our school policy. We will change the books when they are returned to us on a Monday/Wednesday and Friday. There is also no harm in re-reading books so if you have any spare time at home then ask your child to see if they can now read the book with no help to increase their fluency and understanding.
The reading books sent home will be inline with the sounds your child has learned. The books are for practice so the children should be able to read them with no help. Because of this, you may think the books are too easy for your children but we need them to be able to practice the sounds they know in this way and then in school, we will provide them with challenging books during guided reading where we will introduce the new sounds. This ensures the new sounds are being taught correctly and the children don’t get confused.
