Reception Reading

Just in case you couldn’t make the Read, Write Inc evening on Wednesday, Reception children will be bringing books home with sounds and words stuck in.  Please can you go through the sounds and words with your child. We have introduced ‘Fred talk’ and ‘read the word’  so if you point to the sounds, your child can have a go  at pronouncing them using pure sounds.  Then underline the word with your finger and your child will  attempt  to blend the sounds to read the word.

Your child will also bring home a story sack on their reading day. This is a lovely activity to do at home where there are books/games/jigsaws based around a theme. Please can you return the story sack on your child’s reading day making sure all of the contents are inside. Here are there reading days-

Monday – Mary, Lyla, Max, Douglas, Clara, Eva

Thursday – Narayan, Romey, Sam

Friday, Noor, Kasia, Leila, Alexandra, Eibhlin,  Toby,


Here are some very useful websites  for helping you when listening to your child read at home –
