EYFS and KS1 Home Reading
“Reading is the gateway for children that makes all other learning possible.” Barack Obama
This week, we have re-launched our weekly Home Reading Challenge. Reading is important so please aim to read with your child for at least five minutes or more every day to help build their confidence and fluency. Good routines and repetition are key to success in reading.
Each time that you read at home with your child, please tick next to the book on the ‘Reading Log Sheet’ that has been stuck in your child’s Reading Record Book. There is space to write a comment next to each book if you would like to. You no longer need to write the names of the books each time you read.
We will continue to count the number of times your child reads at home every week. Each child that has at least three home reads recorded in their Reading Record Book receives a sticker on our class reward chart. The class that has the most recorded reads at home in a week wins ‘Books and Biscuits’ in the library. Check the newsletter each Friday to see which classes have won the challenge!
We will continue to give weekly reading certificates for the Star Reader in each class. The winning certificate holder will bring home their class reading teddy and storybook to share at home.
