Year 1 Home reading

Year one pupils are encouraged to choose their own books to read at home from a selection at their appropriate reading ability.

As they progress through the Read, Write, Inc phonics programme, they will be able to choose books from each level to practice at home. 

We aim to change their books three times a week. We suggest that children read for a short time every day and even repeat a book to gain confidence and in addition enjoy a picture book for pleasure at bedtime. Pupils can gain so much from being read to as well as having a go themselves.
