Reading at Home

Children in years 3 and 4 will be bringing a reading book and reading record home every day. We listen to them read in school once a week, we ask that you read with them every day if possible. It doesn't have to be their reading book; sharing a newspaper article is an example of something else you might choose to do. 


Most children in LKS2 will be able to choose books freely from our three book 'bands'. These are not the same as in KS1. There are three bands, a lime green for Early Readers, orange for Free Readers and red for Confident Readers. Most children in year 3 will begin with Early Readers, which chosen with support from an adult.
