P2 Reading

Reading books will be coming home this week.

Core reading books – Each group will have a ‘new book’ day when they will be given a new title to read at home. Please read and discuss this book with your child. We will be further developing our reading skills in class using this book.

Monday – Blue. Tuesday – Green.  Wednesday – Yellow. Thursday – Purple.

 Fluency books – They will also ( from week 2) bring home an additional fluency book for extra practise. This fluency book may be a title they have previously had or could be a book of their own choice.

Sight vocabulary cards – Your child may also have a coloured card with a list of words to learn to read by sight. It would be helpful if they could revise this key vocabulary ‘little and often’ and not always in order !

As we use the reading books for classroom activities we would encourage your child to bring their book folder ( compete with book) to school every day. Any important letters will be sent home via the purple book folders so please check it regularly.

Thank you for your continued support.


n.b. in the early stages of term your child may bring home a book which they have previously read. This is for consolidation and revision. Don’t worry – we will be moving forward quickly
