Reading Books

Children will bring home 3 books per week.

  • One book will be a copy of the book they have read in school and should be confident and familiar with.
  • One book will be a unfamiliar book but with similar and familiar vocabulary as the book from school.
  • The third book will be a 'book to share' which your child will have chosen for themselves from our class collection. This book is not expected to be read independently by any child, but is for sharing at a story time with an older sibling or adult.

Books must be returned weekly so that we can exchange for updated books and to ensure your child's progression through the scheme.
