Each child will be given a reading book and a reading diary; these are to be taken home and brought back to school every day. When children have read with an adult at home, please can an adult write in their reading record with the date, book title and any comments about their reading. When reading with your child, please try to ask them questions about the book they have read, as comprehension skills are very important. Your child’s book will be changed weekly depending on their reading and understanding of the book. Please encourage your children to read a wide breadth of books; not only their reading book from school.
In Year 1, all of the children are excited to move along our reading track. Children move up one space for every day they read at home with an adult. Children will receive a house point every time they read at home at least 4 times in one week. When they have reached 50 on the reading track, they will receive a brand new book of their choice in the termly reading assemblies.
