We are taking part in a Ready, Steady, Read sponsored reading challenge. Children are being sponsored to read as many minutes as possible at home to raise money for more books in our school. Children have also been challenged to send in photos of them reading in the most unusual place.
Congratulations to the winners of our 'design a book cover' competition. Thanks to the generous support of our parents, we were able to purchase 60 new books for our school.
We're teaching every child to read using Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised (our chosen systematic, synthetic, phonics programme.)
How Can I Help My Child Read At Home?
There are lots of ways you can help your child with reading and writing at home. Reading with your child as much as possible will help them develop fluency and accuracy when reading aloud. It is important children develop strategies to help themselves when they are stuck with a word. Model breaking the word down, sounding it out and blending it together. They could also use the pictures or the rest of the text to help them develop and understanding so that they can get the word they are missing. It is important to read to children so they see a pleasure for reading and can hear your expression and pace. It is also useful to allow your child to read books again so that their fluency is better and their pace is faster. Here our some book suggestions for your child's age that they might enjoy reading with you at home. I have also added letters I have sent home previously with tips to help reluctant readers at home.
