Class Information

  • Home reader books are changed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. We encourage children to read the book twice – once to sound out new words and find what the book is about and the second time to read it with more fluency and answer questions about its content. Please write in your child’s reading record book as to how they read. We will hear your child read regularly in school to assess their progress. Reading is essential to progress so please try and hear your child read as often as possible.
