Reading

We try to listen to the children read every day either independently with their reading books or within guided reading. Reading is essential for children’s development and as a school we encourage that the children read at home as much as possible. If the children read for 10 minutes at home. If parents could record in the children’s reading records every time this would be much appreciated.
