Reading is incredibly important to us in year 1,as it impacts on everything else we do.
We encourage children to read at home 4 days each week. Please sign your child's diary and write a small comment.The diaries will be checked every Friday and they can achieve a sticker for their bookmark. When their bookmark is filled they can choose a book of their choice to take home to keep.
We are also doing our READING FOR PHONIC challenges and the children who have read the most, moved up a band or just shown a real enthusiasm for their reading, will have the opportunity to read to our class pet Phonic. We will take a photograph for our reading wall and send a copy home, along with a certificate from Phonic.
If you struggle to hear your child read each day then please let us know. Alternatively, if you attend either Breakfast Club or After School Club , the adults there are happy to read with you and write this in your diary as one of your 4 reads.
