Reading Books

Reading Books are changed weekly; please enjoy reading with your child at home.  We ask for book bags to be in school everyday so that we can listen to the children read any day of the week. We ask you to look after the books and if books are lost or damaged you will need to pay for a replacement. Please remember to sign your child's reading diary.

 Top Tips for reading at home:

  1. Read 10 minutes every night with your child.
  2. Discuss the illustrations. What do they think is going on? Why?
  3. Predict what may happen? What would be good/bad etc.
  4. Make up alternative endings.
  5. Discuss what your child’s likes/dislikes are about the text.
  6. What did we learn from the story? Was there a moral, did it give them any information? Was it factual or a fiction story?
  7. Can you change your voice for all the characters?
  8. Be guided by your child’s interests- Read your own stories as well as school books.
  9. Become an explorer- Read fact, fiction, rhymes, poems, picture books.
