READING 

Reading books are to be taken home every night and brought back into school every day. 

Phonics sessions occur daily with a book targetted at the stage yout child is working on. Home reading books are linked to the phonics sound and are changed only on Fridays.

If you are accessing Library books, please complete you Accelerated Reader quizzes online at home if you can by following this link:

Your username and password are the same as your Mathletics.  If you can't access this at home, please let me know.

We will try to change books as regularly as possible in school, but please be patient as we are not allowing children access to the library at the moment. If you forget your book or are reading other books alongside your school reading book, you can search for it in accelerated reader to find if there is a comprehension test for it.
