Our Learning

Reading with your child - information leaflet for parents

The children will also bring home phonic decodable books weekly.  These are for the children to practice the learning that they have been taught in class.  These books should enable the children to be able to read confidently with you and feel successful in doing so.  This supports children in feeling that they are good at reading which is a really positive support to reading for pleasure.   Additionally another book will come home that is the reading with book.  In other words during the week you will read this book with your child.  The purpose of this book is for the child to have someone read to them which helps them to develop an understanding of tone, flow and fluency.
