When the children have been assessed by the teachers, they will be given a colour reading band and a 'Reading Record Book'.
To help develop a love of reading and to practice the skills learnt in school we recommend that the children read a little bit every day. It doesn't have to be the whole book, just practice little and often. Please record this in their reading record book.
When the book is finished, we will encourage the children to independently change their books for a new one. This usually happens before the register in the morning (between 8.45 - 8.55), so make sure you are at school with plenty of time if the children need to change their books.
Please make sure the children always have their reading books in their book bags. We have some lovely volunteers who read with the children, so it is important they have their books with them.
We also have a book list here for you to look at, to give you ideas for great readers!
