This year, we have invested in a lot of new texts to be read alongside our current home reading books. Your child will bring home two reading books each week. One will match their current phonics phase and should be easily decodable for them. The other will be a “challenge book” which will be presented with a “star sticker” on the front cover. Your child should be able to read most of their challenge book, but may require some support with certain words.
As many of these books are brand new, please be aware that you will be charged if they are either “lost” or if they are not returned to school in the same condition they went home in.
Reading books will be sent home every Friday, and must be returned to school on the following Friday so that they can be changed and sent out again.
Key Word Books
This blue book is similar to the Key Word Book your child brought home in Reception. The difference is that they need to read these words correctly and spell them in their written work. It is important that all children apply their reading and writing knowledge in all areas of learning. Therefore, it is very important that you support your child at home to read and write these words as much as possible.
The strip of key words are words which link to the phonic phase your child is on. Your child can practise reading and writing at home throughout the week
Key word books will be sent home every Friday, and must be returned to school on the following Friday so that they can be changed and sent out again.
