Please read with your child as often as you can. The children can change their reading books on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday if there is a comment to say they have read. We have a reading challenge at the moment to encourage your child to read at home. Once your child has completed their tick chart at the beginning of their reading record book, they will receive a prize


Phonics is a way of teaching children to read quickly and skilfully.  They are taught how to:

recognise the sounds that each individual letter makes; identify the sounds that different combinations of letters make such as ‘sh’ or ‘oo' and blend these sounds together from left to right to make a word.

Occasionally, in addition to your child's reading book, we may send home some extra phonics activities to help your child with their reading skills. 


The children are able to go to the school library on a Friday to choose their own library books. This may be one they can read themselves or you may read to them. We cannot change their library books until they have returned their current library book.
