To help your child at home, it is important for you to support your child with their reading and phonics throughout the week. Reading books and phonics records are due in every Thursday. Children who have their reading record signed will receive raffle tickets which will be entered into the draw in Friday's assembly with the chance to win a brand new book!
- Reading - OTTER book: This book is matched to your child’s reading ability. Listen to your child read this independently and celebrate their successes as they will have worked on decoding, prosody/expression and comprehension skills during OTTER. Please sign that they have read this in their reading record. Library book: This book is chosen by your child and is for them to share with an adult at home. It is a story they enjoy and is not matched to their phonic ability. Please sign that you have shared this book in their reading record.
- Phonics - Phonics Record: This is a record of the graphemes your child has learnt in phonics that week, with examples of words containing those sounds and tricky words, which are words they cannot fully decode. Recap this with your child, ask them to look for digraphs or hear the sounds in the words, then blend to read the word. They could also segment to spell the words too. Please sign that you have looked at their phonics record in their reading record.
