EYFS and KS1

This year we have updated our reading books in order to support your child’s learning in phonics. Early reading books will be linked to your child’s phonics phase; phase 2,3,4 or 5. This will need to be read more than once over the week. Repetition is an important tool which allows children to process and internalise sound and letter correspondences and to give them the opportunity to experience being a successful reader. Your child will bring home three books a week; a Guided Reading book which will have been read with the teacher, an Independent Reading book which they have chosen themselves from their phonics phase and a Shared Read which your child will select from the school library because they would like to share it with you! 

 

We would appreciate your positive approach to revisiting these books throughout your week and for finding time to share the Shared Read together

Repetition is an important tool which allows children to process and internalise sound and letter correspondences and to give them the opportunity to experience being a successful reader. Your child will bring home three books a week; reading from the Whole Class Read which will have been read with the teacher, an Independent Reading book which they have chosen themselves from their phonics phase or Book Band and a Shared Read which your child will select from the school library because they would like to share it with you!
