We expect the children to read at least three times a week. They should record this in their reading records and we ask parents to sign this weekly. Please ensure that your child has a current book, appropriate to their level and understanding. This could be a book from home or school.
Please send in your child's home-school reading diary on their designated day of the week for their book to be changed. (Each child will be given a reading record which has the chosen day of the week written on the front of it - WC 14/9/20).
Teachers and Teaching Assistants will read with the children to ensure that they are still on the correct reading band and will make the decision of when to move them on.

In Year 3, 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 35 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. The children can play games, complete puzzles, read stories, write their own stories and complete reading and spelling lessons all whilst earning awards and styling their own Reading Egg character.
