Reading in Year One
Learning to read is one of the most important skills that our children need to master in their first years of school. We want children to have a love of reading and be confident and enthusiastic to read at home and at school.
Children will bring home two new reading books every Friday and these should be kept in their reading folder along with their reading record book. During the week an additional 'take home' book will be sent home which is matched to the phonic sounds your child is learning in school.
We encourage children to read out loud to an adult every day, or at least 5 times a week, for 5-10 minutes each time.
Please sign the reading record each time your child reads and ensure the reading folder comes to school every day.
Children who have read 5 times will move up on our 'Star Reader Chart' and their names will be read out in Celebration Assembly on a Friday.
