I love reading and always enjoy reading in class each day with your children.
There are so many benefits for children.
Due to the current circumstances with Covid 19, we are currently unable to provide your children with school books to take home.
However, your child has been given a password and username for Bug Club, where they can read books online and answer comprehension questions.
In school, every child has their own reading book, changed at least once weekly. They will read each week with an adult. The children also have a number of books in their table packs that will be changed each week. They can read their books when they come in each day, when they have completed their work and during free time such as wet play or golden time.
Our English curriculum is book-based, meaning that the written / drama work your child completes is centred around a shared book. We also share reading time as a class every day. This helps with your child's vocabulary and encourages the class to ask questions and share different opinions. We build up our knowledge so that we can compare familiar stories.
Please try to read with your child at home for at least ten minutes each day. Remember to discuss what you have read and ask questions to check understanding. Make it fun and enjoyable! Use voices and actions! Here are some questions you could ask your child when you are reading with them.
