Reading in Year 1
We encourage the children to complete 4 reads a week. Please make time to sit with your child for 5-10 minutes each time; Discuss the story together- talk about the characters, their feelings, the plot, their favourite parts, what will happen next. Encourage them to use their phonics and sound out any unfamiliar words. It’s invaluable to teachers to know that your child is receiving support from home in their reading, so please do remember to acknowledge by signing and adding comments in their school diary.
Books will be changed once a week whereby we will collect books from the children, change them after school and pass them back the next day.
