Reading in Year 1

Reading in Year 1

We encourage the children to read at home at least 5 times a week! Your child may want to read the same book again, until they are confident with reading it! Please make a parent/carer comment in the yellow reading record every time they read. You can change your book as often as you like in one week, just pop it in the ‘reading book box’ in the foyer and it will be changed the same day!

We will now be monitoring Reading Records every Wednesday! If your child has read 5 times at home they will get a reading star sticker!

Your child will take part in a Guided Reading session every week and a Teacher, Teaching Assistant or Reading Assistant will listen to your child read once a week!

Please ensure your child’s reading book and yellow Reading Record is in their book bag everyday!

Thank you for your support
