Reading

Children in Year 1 are expected to read their school reading book for 10 minutes, 5 times a week.  Please encourage your child to complete their reading homework and achieve their 'Gold Reading Challenge' each half term.

If your child has not been able to change their book during the school day they can find extra books to read using the Oxford Owls website.
