Reading at Home

Reception

 They will receive a Phonics Reading book matched to their phonics stage and two books from the classroom.

Helpful phonics resources can be found here:

Year 1 – Year 4

Pupils have access to Bug Club.
Each half term the school adds the titles to be read, which are appropriate for the child’s reading level. Once children have read the book, there will be an opportunity for them to answer questions and complete a quiz. They will collect reward points as they go along which can be used to play games. Teachers will monitor pupil progress and share the information with them.

Spellings

Each week the children are given a number of words to learn. The children are given a weekly spelling test to check these have been learned.

When learning spellings, we recommend this approach:

Look – Cover – Write – Check

In addition, children across KS2 are tested on the relevant high frequency words for their age in the Autumn term.
