The children will start coming home with a book from our class library to share with their family at home. They can be encouraged to look through the book on their own and listen to a family member tell them the story and discuss it together.
The main purposes are to ignite the children's interest in books and stories to become life-long readers; to support families to share books together at home; to introduce the system of choosing their own book; to get families used to using the reading record book.
As the children become more confident picking their own class library book, sharing them with their family and changing them regularly, they will move on to the book banded books. We strive to make sure that your child is on the appropriate book band for their reading ability and needs. Please have a look at the book band document for ideas on how to support your child on their book band.
In order to support the children make progress with their reading, we will check their reading records on a daily basis to see any new comments and change their book if necessary. Please try to listen to your child read at least 4 times a week, remembering to write a comment in their reading record.

We have recently revisited our current reading scheme and have invested in some brand new reading books, enabling all children to access a range of books at their level. All children should have come home with a new book by now, please read the guidance notes in the front or back of each book and enjoy!
Any feedback about the new reading books, would be greatly received.
After sharing a book with your child, please leave feedback on the new books. In the message, state the book you are writing a review for. Thank you.
