Reading is such an essential part of the curriculum- it opens doors for the children throughout their lives. We read as much as possible!
In Year 1, your child is encouraged to read at home each night. This can be one of their online Bug Club reading books, which are tailored to their current reading fluency and comprehension level, a beloved book from home, some poetry or even the TV guide! We know that reading with your child at home, even for 5 minutes each day, will give them further fluency practice and will reinforce the fundamental skills of reading.
Bug Club reading books are updated on an 'as and when' basis. As soon as your child has finished reading their book, including completing any relevant comprehension quizzes indicated by the small, green bug symbol, their answers will be reviewed and, should they need a top up, more books will be assigned.
Your child will also read In a group on a weekly basis during Guided Reading. We share and read a book together and talk about what happens in the story
