Please read with your Owl every day; regular practice is the key to developing a life-long love of literature and becoming a proficient reader! In the early stages of reading development, it is important that children read their reading books several times. The first read is an opportunity for them to practice their skills of decoding. The second read enables them to develop greater fluency and an expressive reading style. The third read, enables them to develop a deeper understanding of the text as their focus is now on comprehension rather than word reading. We use Read Write Inc as our phonics programme and the reading books the children bring home will be linked to this. Please ensure that home reading books are returned to school every day.
New reading books will come home on a Friday.
