Reading Books at Home

Each week your child will bring home their Little Wandle reading book. This is a book that they have practised reading in school and can now read at home to build fluency with an adult. Children will also bring home a 'free choice' book. This book is for both adults and children to enjoy together. It is important to remember that this book is to be read to your child by an adult. Please ensure that your child brings their book bag into school daily, with their reading books and home reading journal inside.
