Year 1- 07/10/21

The children have all been enjoying our Little Wandle phonics sessions. They are becoming more confident with their sounds. This week we also introduced guided reading. The children have all been issued with a reading book to take home. These will be changed twice weekly on a Monday and Thursday. The fantastic news is that each book will be carefully selected to match the children’s phonic understanding and this will improve both pleasure for reading and the progress the children make.

Here is some information about how to read at home with your child. At parents evenings, the teacher will also go through reading information to support your home reading.

Reading Books

Your child has received a reading book that has been carefully selected for them. Inside the book you will find a bookmark on how to care for the book. Please read with your child at least 3 times a week.

First time- Decoding– Follow instructions on the inside of the front cover. Then read the book.

Second time – Prosody– Read the book again. Focus on the children reading fluently and with expression.

Third time- Comprehension– Read book again and answer questions listed on the back cover.
