Reading rewards

Each child has been given a reward bookmark. When your child has read at home, at least three times in one week, and it has been recorded in their reading record we will give them one sticker. The reading that takes place does not have to just be reading the book that your child has taken home from school. It could be ebooks using EPIC books, your favourite book or even reading signs whilst shopping. However for your child to receive their sticker reward it must be written in their reading record for us to see. Please be aware that reading record books are not checked daily but will be checked when your child has read with an adult in school. The children will only get stickers to put on their reading reward bookmark for reading at home, not for reading in school.

 

Comprehension:

To aid your child's progression in reading ensure you are asking questions about the story you have read. Attached are some ideas for questions you can ask.

100 book reading challenge

Below is a link to a document listing books that children can challenge themselves to read by the end of Year 2.

 

The children have the opportunity to access some of these books during literacy learning and in guided reading sessions at school. They are then expected to answer relevant comprehension activities on the book to show that they have understood it.

 

We are also allowing the children the opportunity to take these books home and lend them from school, just like a library service. The children will sign the book they choose out and then sign it back in once they have returned it. Some books may appear to be easy and others more challenging. Some books you, as the adult, may choose to read to your child and then discuss the story afterwards. Reading is not just about fluenty reading the story but is about understanding the words that have been read and taking pleasure in reading.
