Reading:

We will be continuing to develop our reading through our own individual reading books and taking part in guided reading sessions. We also have a class story which we read a the end of each day and have daily independent reading sessions. Please make sure your child reads their book every night as this is so important. They also need to bring their book into school every day as we use them as part of our daily reading sessions.
