Your child should read at least 3 times a week for 15-20 minutes. Learning to read and understand what we read is paramount and, for children and adults alike, it opens up doors to endless opportunities. Read, Write Inc is our Phonics programme that focuses on developing children’s reading, fluency and understanding. With its repetitive nature it quickly develops the children’s ability to decode unfamiliar words as well support them through any writing process. With this in mind, it is essential that the children read as much as possible at home and ensure that they bring their reading book and record into school on a daily basis. This enables us to change their books regularly and give them access to a wider range of genres whilst developing their love of reading.
