Thank you for your continued support with reading at home during the continued period of School Closure. We strongly recommend daily reading opportunities for all pupils (EYFS-Y6) to ensure that your child continues to use and develop their reading skills across a range of reading materials. 

There is always value in reading books more than once. This includes books sent home from school or reading books on the shelves at home. Please also spend time discussing vocabulary in reading books. If you are ready for some new reading material, we are pleased to share some online reading resources with you. Please see below for accessing these e-reading materials. 

Please do not hesitate to use the year group emails (e.g to ask any questions regarding your child's reading at home.

Please also see our top-tips sheets below for more ideas and suggestions.


Reading Planet

Each week, we will assign 3 e-reading books for your child to read as part of their Core Learning on Reading Planet. These books will be carefully selected according to an appropriate book band for your child’s year group.

Please take time to hear your child read and discuss the text with them. Younger children will need to read the text once to decode it, then again for fluency and understanding. There is a quiz at the end of each book for your child to practise key comprehension skills. May we ask that once you have read the book you do not click on ‘Finished’ so that other children may read the book, although these can still be accessed in the ‘Books I’ve Read’ tab.
