Reading and Phonics 

Please read your child's Read Write Inc books daily with your child as this will support progress in reading and phoics and build your child's confidence. Within the text there are tricky words, speedy words and comprehension questions too. Vist Oxfordowl.co.uk to access Read Write Inc books. 

We try and encourage our children to read for pleasure and have a passion for reading as it will stimulate their brain, grown their vocabulary and stregthen their reading ability. 

Each half term I recommend 5 reads and encourage the children to try and read all 5 by the end of the half term. If they achive this then they'll be awarded with a certificate and a prize.

These texts are texts that adults or older sibblings could read and model good fluency and expression. You could also discuss new vocabualry and ask questions about the text.
