Reading & Library

Reading

In Year One, children make amazing progress with their reading. In school we hear children read individually, in reading groups and during daily classroom sessions. We also have quiet reading times after lunchtime for the children to practise their reading. Please could you support your child by listening to them read each evening and discussing their books with them. Even 5 minutes of reading on a regular basis will make a huge difference to your child’s understanding, fluency and enjoyment of reading. Could an adult please write in your child’s reading record when you have heard them read and let us know of any issues/successes your child has with their books. Please could reading books and reading records come back to school each day.

Library

On Monday afternoons, Beech class visit our comfortable school library. The children choose a book to take home for the week. Please could the book come back to school on the following Monday so that your child can choose a new one.
