Reading

Your child will be heard by the teacher each week.

If your child reads confidently then he/she will be given new books.

Your child will also be given flash cards with the Reception High Frequency Words on them. Your child needs to learn these and match them with the words on the larger card. Each time a set of words is confidently recognised, a new set will be sent home.

As the year progresses, and your child's confidence in reading increases, he/she may be involved in Guided Reading Sessions. This is when a small group of children share the same book. They will read sections individually or together and they answer questions that will test their comprehension. The children may also carry out a task that is relevant to the book they are sharing.
