READING @ COXLEY

Foundation Stage and KS1 Class (Yarley)


Children's home school reading books are changed once a week. We use book band colours and our main books are Bug Club Pearson texts. In addition to this parents and children can access 'BUG CLUB' (Pearson) which is our online reading scheme. Teachers will add books either at the request of the parent (please write a note in the reading record) or on a fortnightly basis. Children have access to at least 5 books at a time online. Please continue to record when you hear your child read in their reading record.

Children also have daily Guided Reading and Phonics sessions (Phonics Bug).

 

It is the expectation of the school that all children read at home for a minimum of 3 times per week and that this is evidenced in their reading record.
