Please read with your child at least 5 times per week and record the title, progress, and additional comments in their green reading record book.
Your child's books will be changed regularly. The Year 1 team will discuss with your child which books they would like to read and choices will be be made accordingly.
Please record any books from home you have read, these can be non-fiction, comics, bedtime stories.
Encourage your child to read at any opportunity - road signs, instruction booklets, recipes, menus, the back of the cereal box! All this practice will help them develop confidence and motivate them to read.
The expectation in Year 1 is for your child to read 5x weekly. Thank you.
