It is really important that children read to develop their blending and segmenting skills as well as developing their English vocabulary.
In class, we gave a wide range of books for children to explore. We encourage children to discuss the story, ask and respond to questions and develop their own independence through their love of reading.
Children choose their own reading book to take home every night. Children have the opportunity to change their book every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Reading diaries are checked on a regular basis, please ensure they are completed and signed weekly. Children will read 1:1 with a teacher each week and a comment will be written in their diary too. It is really important that children share a book everyday and it is wonderful when we can support children both at home and school.
