We use a wide range of reading material including some from graded reading schemes such as Oxford Reading Tree, Pearson's Bug Club and Rigby Star, and many 'real books' too. (Please see our Reading Booklet for further guidance). Please read the books your child chooses to and with them as appropriate, encouraging them to read what they can and enjoying bedtime stories with the more complicated texts.
Choose a quiet time when you can be sure there will be no interruptions-and certainly away from the T.V.! You can also help by joining the children's library, buying books as presents and letting your child see that you enjoy reading. Your help makes all the difference in encouraging your child to achieve success at reading. In reception, your child will get a Home Reading Log to help track your child's achievements and reading materials. In Year 1 and Year 2 your child will take part in our Reading Trail and all children are able to earn special reading awards too!
