Reading

 

I sent two books home with your child on Monday, they may or may not have read these before but if so, it is good practice for them to read books more than once. This gives the children the opportunity to become more confident to read words without sounding out and also to continue to read tricky words like 'the' or 'to' that cannot be sounded out. 

 

Reading books that you have at home is also a good way to learn new vocabulary and encourages children to ask questions and talk about what is happening in a story.

 

 

Oxford Owl

 

To support your reading at home I have provided a link below to the Oxford Owl website. If you access the 'At Home' area of the website and create your own username and password, you will be able to access over 100 Oxford Reading Tree reading ebooks for free via your laptops, ipads and tablets at home. The books are arranged by reading band which roughly correlates to the reading band system we use in school. Please note the books are not always arranged by level of difficulty, some books within a band will sometimes be harder/easier than others.

 

Alongside each reading book there are a couple of activities that children can complete and suggested questions you can ask. I do hope you find this resource helpful. Happy reading :)
