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!
