Reading is a key skill that all children in Year 1 need to develop. In KS1 we will be focusing on building up the children's high frequency word recognition, sound blending and segmenting of words and becoming more independent fluent readers. 

Independent reading will take place throughout the week. Independent reading reinforces their phonics knowledge and adults will hear them read 1:1 regularly. This will be recorded in their reading record. We would like you to read with your child at least 3 times a week and record any comments in your child's Reading Record Book. When reading with your child, please try to ask them questions about the title of the book, the pictures and what they have read to check their comprehension. Please note, books only get changed once the book has been read twice, to help with their fluency and accuracy of reading. Reading will be checked and changed on Mondays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child comes to school with their reading record and book every day.
