“You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book.” Dr. Seuss.

We would like you to encourage your child to read at home every day. We will change your child's reading book on a Monday. Please ensure that your child has their reading record in their book bag each day. We will record in this book when we read with your child at school during a group guided reading session.


Reading Eggs

In Year 1, we would like all children to participate with our fun and interactive Reading Eggs programme both at home and at school. All children should be encouraged to enjoy 20 minutes of Reading Eggs at home every week, including one reading lesson. Please feel free to extend your learning for even longer! Your teacher will be able to see all of your hard work. Play games, complete puzzles, read stories, write your own stories and complete reading and spelling lessons all whilst earning awards and styling your own Reading Egg character. 


You will find your login details at the front of your yellow reading record. Quick, log in now to start the fun! 

Fun with Phonics at home

Each week we will be adding a new link for you to practice a set 2 or set 3 sound at home.
