Please remind your child to bring their book and reading record to school every day as we do reading activities linked to their books throughout the week. We will not hand out new reading books if their previous one has not been returned. New books go out on Monday and Tuesdays.

Please do not be worried if your child moves/changes reading groups – reading groups are fluid and your child may move in order to support their individual learning needs.


  • We have been doing reading in class focusing on sounding out, decoding tricky words and reading with increased fluency and expression
