Reading Books

In year 1 children will be heard read 3 times a week on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Your child's reading book needs to be in school on a daily basis.  Please try to read with your child for 5 to 10 minutes each night and sign their diary every time you have read together. Your child will also receive 3 key words to learn to read each week and a phonic challenge will be sent home on Monday evening.  Remember, reading is a fun activity to do together, it also inspires life long learning, make it a positive experience and enjoy it!
If you need any help or advice please pop in to speak to Mrs Zinna.
