READING BOOKS *New Day Monday Exchange*
Each week the children will receive new reading books. The children are encouraged to read the books themselves, however, the key point of reading books is for the child to engage with the book and develop an excitement to try to read. It is okay if you read it for them first, or alongside them. This can be a nice cosy few minutes spent together and should not be stressful. If your child becomes too frustrated with reading books, please speak to their teacher for tips.
The weekly QR code links to the book your child is reading with their phonics group. It involves key vocabulary, keywords and the weekly new sound they're learning.
+ Please familiarise yourself with your child's exchange day and prepare the books. Thank you! +
A lot of our communication and updates take place using DOJO. Please follow the link sent by the class teacher to access the class.
